In 1964, the Zombies reached number 12 in the UK with their debut single She’s Not There. Rob Argent, the writer of the song, started with the title of a John Lee Hooker song, namely No One Told Me. This became the first line of his song. On a performance, he played the first verse, and Ken Jones encouraged him to write the rest of the song. The song’s distinctive feature became the harmonies with an electric piano. Enjoy
