war the band


War began with founding members Harold Brown and Harold E. Scott’s creation of a high-school R&B cover/jamband called, ironically enough, the Creators. By 1968, with most of the original members off to Vietnam, the Creators became Nightshift, and got a job backing L.A. Rams tackle Deacon Jones at a local club. It was here where they met veteran record producer Jerry Goldstein, who renamed them War (for shock purposes) and got them a gig backing ex-Animals singer Eric Burdon on his next solo project. With him, Burdon had brought Danish harmonica player Lee Oskar, later to become an integral part of the septet’s sound.
