Country Joe McDonald

Composer

“I was there in the '60s and '70s, and there was a lot of bull thrown around about the 'revolution' and a lot of drug taking and sex happening. Sure people showed up at demonstrations in large numbers, but did that end the war?”

 

Biography

Political and ecological issues were set to musical accompaniment by Country Joe McDonald, who co-founded and led the psychedelic folk-rock band Country Joe & the Fish, the leading left-wing band of the ‘60s. Since the group’s breakup in 1971, McDonald has continued to musically espouse his political views through his original, folk-like songs. —allmusic guide
