SEARCHERS: LA STORIA DEL ROCK

Gruppo inglese del 1960 che per un certo periodo furono secondi solo ai Beatles, si distingue per la musica brillante e perfette vocalizzazioni in connubio con impeccabili accompagnamenti strumentali. Dopo i primi successi nel 1963 con Sweet for my sweet e altri che seguiranno, le prime defezioni del bassista e cantante Tony Jackson lasciala band per formare i Vibrators, viene sostituito da Frank Allen ex Rebel Roursers di Cliff Bennet. Nel 1965, a causa dei continui dissapori all’interno, abbandona anche Curtis che nel 1966 formerà i Roundabout con John Lord e Richie Blackmore futuri Deep Purple. La discesa della band è inevitabile e gli ultimi singoli non vendono molto, negli anni settanta i rimanenti della band tornano a registrare solo per dei revival. Nel 2005 il 28 febbraio muore Chris Curtis a 64 anni.
