Atomic Rooster: The Rooster Crows

Phil Hardy, Let It Rock, June 1972

ATOMIC ROOSTER is Vincent Crane. Or, if you prefer it like the cinema ads, Vincent Crane is Atomic Rooster, which should sound surprising when you consider that their singer, Chris Farlowe, has been around longer than the band or Crane and is certainly better known than either — in his own words "I'm an international star, and I haven't been busted."
