The current Iron Butterfly has been filling rooms where ever they play recreating the iconic sounds of the 1968 Iron Butterfly. They can do this because 5 of 6 current members all played with one or more of the original In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida lineup. Ray Weston, who took over for drummer Ron Bushy is an exceptional drummer.
The Iron Butterfly fans have been asking about the health of Iron Butterfly drummer Ron Bushy. While Ron still remains on medical leave, one magical night at The Canyon Club in California on August 19th, 2018 he returned to the stage. Ron came on stage to play In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. We are fortunate to give you this short video of the performance. Enjoy the magic of the Iron Butterfly and Ron Bushy.
Waxwork Records is releasing the complete soundtrack and film score to Michael Mann‘s cult classic 1986 movie Manhunter on vinyl, Waxwork’s new vinyl release of Manhunter includes the complete original soundtrack including the famous closing track In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly.
Well Iron Butterfly fans what a surprise when we found this clip from the 1970 movie Musical Mutiny of the band lip syncing the song Soul Experience. Sure the movie was awful but this video clip highlights the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida lineup the band and is fantastic. Here is the link to the video. Enjoy.
