Barry McGuire

Along with Bob Dylan's emergence came countless other folk-based "protest singers" in the early to mid-'60s, including Barry McGuire. Born in Oklahoma City during 1935, McGuire had relocated to New York City and joined up with folk revivalists the New Christy Minstrels by the early '60s. He was anointed the band's lead singer and appeared on several albums and their first hit single, "Green, Green" (which was co-penned by McGuire). Soon after, however, McGuire caught the attention of both record producer Lou Adler and singer/songwriter P.F. Sloan, resulting in the guitarist/singer leaving the New Christy Minstrels and launching a solo career, signing on with Adler's Dunhill Records. McGuire's solo debut, The Barry McGuire Album, was released in 1963, but it wasn't until two years later that McGuire scored a massive hit with the Sloan-penned track "Eve of Destruction," which topped the U.S. charts (peaking at number three in the U.K.) and was taken from his sophomore full-length, Barry McGuire Featuring Eve of Destruction. McGuire became good friends with another Adler-guided outfit, the Mamas & the Papas (who mentioned him in some of their song lyrics), while further solo albums were issued, including This Precious Time and The World's Last Private Citizen, but none spawned any singles as successful as "Eve." By the early '70s, McGuire had turned his back on folk music and he re-appeared as a Christian/gospel artist, signing on with the Myrrh label and issuing such standout albums as 1973's Seeds, 1975's Lighten Up, and a live recording, 1982's To the Bride, among countless others. McGuire put his music career on hold and moved to New Zealand in the mid-'80s with his wife, where they remained until 1990, working with the poverty organization World Vision. Upon his return, McGuire began issuing albums once more, including such titles as El Dorado, Let's Tend God's Earth, Adventures on Son Mountain, and Journey to Bible Times, before teaming up with another gospel singer/guitarist, Terry Talbot, to form an outfit called Talbot McGuire. ~ Greg Prato

Not old enough to have gone to his concerts, but I recorded eve of destruction from the oldies station when I was younger. Just made a station on pandor and realized I like every song that says Barry McGuire in front of it. I collect old l.p.s and now I have a new goal... Eve of destruction!

We just saw Barry McGuire and John York perform at the Florence Winter Folk Festival. They are a terrific act; McGuire is a showman/stor y t e l l e r extraordinai r e and York adds great guitar and vocals. We saw them a few years ago and this time the big change was some fancy dance steps by York. We could see and enjoy them again and again. Dick & Diane

My first concert was this year, even though I have enjoyed his songs for years. In his late 70s the man is an incredible force of music and soul. One thing that is not mentioned in the bio above is McGuire's powerful connection to Southern California and its folk and rock scene.

Saw him live several times in Berkely, CA, '73. As a young Christian, he had a profound influence upon me.

Love the concerts as a Christian musician - with wonderful stories - esp the about the dolphins!

"California Dreamin'" with The Mamas and the Papas singing backing vocals. McGuire is mentioned several times in The Mamas and the Papas hit, "Creeque Alley". Frank Zappa wrote McGuire's name in the sleeve of his Freak Out! album (1966) as one of his musical influences. He also starred for a year in the Broadway musical Hair. (From Wikipedia)

As Barry said He "was the first hippie", he was "hippie 101" or something like that ;). This mans music especially To the Bride are still vibrant and alive.
