Arthur Brown is best known for his 1968 single, “Fire,” a number one hit that played all over the world and still airs to this day. The song is a product of Arthur’s band, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown and has been re-done by numerous super acts, including The Who, Ozzy Osbourne, and The Prodigy. Arthur’s flamboyant and theatrical style was a significant influence on various big names, including George Clinton, Alice Cooper, Kiss, Marilyn Manson, Bowie, and Peter Gabriel among others. The Crazy World of Arthur Brown is celebrating their 46 years of success with the massive hit, “Fire” by doing a 2014 tour, Crazy World. The seventy-one year old has also been busy putting together one last and final album, Zim Zam Zim with the help of donations from fans. Check out the “God of Hellfire’s” performance in Studio 1A last Monday!
