Iron Butterfly – In A Gadda Da Vida

Sad news this morning about the band. Bassist Lee Dorman passed away in California. He was only 70, which is much too young for someone to die. Iron Butterfly was best known for the psychedelic sound of their hit In A Gadda Da Vida. The story goes that the song was supposed to be In The Garden of Eden but somehow between alcohol and drugs it didn’t quite come out that way. Haven’t we all been there at one point? It was the ’60s after all.
