Description:
Group for the fans of classic rock-band Argent.

Update at 09-04-2013: this group has never been that active, but you can still join if you want; of course.
If you join, I'll still connect your country to this group (if you tell in your profile).
Sorry if this takes/took a time. It was actually a while ago I looked after my own group.

I actually even don't listen that often to Argent anymore, but I still respect them; obviously.



ARGENT



Argent are an English rock band founded in 1968 by keyboardist Rod Argent, formerly of The Zombies. Rod is also vocalist. He sounds a bit like Freddy Mercury (R.I.P.) in my opinion. The other vocalist (and guitarist) is Russ Ballard. Bob Henrit plays drums, Jim Rodford bass and past members are John Verity and John Grimald.
Their only hit was "God Gave Rock and Roll To You" and they also made a cover of "Hold Your Head Up", but I think it's worth to listen to their other songs, too.

    Congratulations giAnie. You're the 20th member of this group! Welcome! (I thought this day would never come and this group would totally die one day. It probably will happen one day, but not yet today!)

    i checked out soundbites at amazon for the debut,ring of hands, in deep and circus. the latter not carzy about. but i think the first four seem amazing. kinda like what the zombies may have done if they stayed together? thanks!!! :)
