07.08.2015 Rockcellar Magazine names ‘Vida the Number One All-Time Long Song
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is a 17-minute jam extravaganza, the title song of Iron Butterfly’s 1968 LP that takes up the entire second side. “It actually started as a country ballad and was originally only one minute and 20 seconds long,” drummer Ron Bushy told Drumhead magazine. “Then we went on tour all over the U.S. with the Airplane for three months, and we fine-tuned it. We played that song in concert every night during that tour with a drum solo in it.”
