Personalities | Country Joe & The Fish | Sixties | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1965–70)

One of the more doctrinal psychedelic groups that flourished in flower-power San Francisco featured Country Joe McDonald (vocals) and Barry ‘Fish’ Melton (guitar). Both Electric Music For The Mind And Body and Together made the US album Top 40, and ‘I Feel Like I’m Fixing To Die Rag’ was taken up as an anti-Vietnam war anthem. It was also a highlight of the group’s appearance at Woodstock, the springboard of McDonald’s subsequent solo career.
