WAR was the first and most successful musical crossover phenomenon that forever fused rock, jazz, Latin, and R&B, while transcending racial and cultural barriers with a multi-ethnic line-up; a musical melting pot and an enduring influence that has sold nearly 25 million records to date.
Born in Long Beach in 1969, the large combo initially served as rocker Eric Burdon's group, backing the ex-Animal on his 1970 million-seller Spill the Wine. Bidding Burdon adieu, the band signed with United Artists in 1971 and enjoyed its first smash the next year with Slippin' into Darkness. Tapping into a sizzling, horn-fueled rock/soul synthesis, The World Is a Ghetto, The Cisco Kid, and Why Can't We Be Friends? all went gold during the mid-'70s. Despite numerous personnel and label changes, War still remains eminent today.
