Hey Zombies fans! The group has released its first holiday season singel. Written by Rod Argent and Chris White, "Christmas for the Free" was first done in the 70s by Rod's group Argent.
Rod told PlayMPE.com that it was time to revisit the song, which was written while the Vietnam War was still being fought. "Unforunately it never sees to lose its relevance. It's really a frustrated Christmas-time reflection on so much human misery and suffering caused by politicians--far removed from the real front-line--concerned only by the appearance of their own successes." "We need to spare thought and action for those who have no choice but hunger and grief."
The Zombies have posted a video of the song, complete with lyrics on their website.

When they're done, he removes them and waits for the next photo opp. Gonzalez is now 95 years old.
Here's Lennon's classic "Woman" from his final original album, from iHeartRadio:
