Classic Rock Fan Community: Led Zep, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Doors & More

For a 13 year old living in Canada the Viet Nam war was not something top of mind for me. But I was into music and in 1965 a guy named Barry McGuire began to climb the charts with a tune called Eve of Destruction.

The song was everywhere. It was on the radio. My buds and I used to sing it. And McGuire performed it on every television music show beamed into my rec room.

I think I've got you there Phantasm. Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs had a hit with Sugar Shack in 1963. In 1968 they had another hit with the Tom Paxton penned Bottle of Wine. Your timing is off and you're mistaken about the artist. Sorry, guy.
