Chris White

Former Zombies bassist Chris White holds the distinction of co-composing one of rock’s great masterworks Odessey and Oracle (1968).

White, who reunites with the surviving original members for special anniversary performances of the aforementioned slab, is a dexterous pocket and counter-melodic player who, akin to his peer Sir Paul, takes a compositional approach to the instrument. 

Chris has collaborated with his former bandmates Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent as a writer/producer, most notably co-composing Argent’s seminal hit “Hold Your Head Up,” which, as current Zombies and former Argent bassist Jim Rodford notes in the Know Your Bass Player documentary (in progress), is founded on a bassline which Jim derived from an early Zombies hit.
