Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent
One of the few false notes (actually he provided many false notes) of the Olympic opening ceremony was the performance of Paul McCartney. He is a living part of our musical history but, let us be honest, he voice has gone.
It is not surprising, given his age, but in the past couple of years I have heard two survivors of the British Invasion generation who have definitely still got it: Steve Winwood and Colin Blunstone of the Zombies.
The other day Andrew Hickey pointed us to this video of a short performance by Blunstone and his bandmate Rod Argent. It's certainly more enjoyable than that Paul McCartney performance.
