  • Little rock history: In summer 1969, [artist]The Crazy World of Arthur Brown[/artist] had to cease touring in the middle of their second U.S. tour because of keyboardist [artist]Vincent Crane[/artist]'s mental illness. When he recovered, he and drummer [artist]Carl Palmer[/artist] took the step to leave Arthur Brown and return to England, the return date being Friday 13 June 1969, which was the year of the Rooster in the Chinese calendar, and arranged a meeting with [artist]Brian Jones[/artist] to discuss a collaboration. After Jones's death, they adopted the name [artist]Atomic Rooster[/artist] (with influence from the US band [artist]Rhinoceros[/artist]), and soon recruited [artist]Nick Graham[/artist] on bass and vocals.
