Ex-Butterfly To Sing At Club
Former Iron Butterfly singer Darryl DeLoach plays the Cotton Club in Hayden, Idaho, on Thursday. DeLoach sang on the band’s 1968 album “Heavy,” but quit before the 1969 release of “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” Iron Butterfly’s best-selling record.
His reason for leaving the band: “The reason why I quit is that the pace got too fast,” said DeLoach. “Just like all the rest of them, we got burned out.”
Yet the vocalist has no regrets for quitting.
“I’m still alive,” he says.
After spending his post-Iron Butterfly years as a restaurant owner in Southern California, DeLoach has gone back to music full time and is releasing a CD called “From the Hands of Time.”
According to DeLoach, the CD is a bit of a departure from Iron Butterfly. The release, featuring Iron Butterfly keyboardist Doug Ingle’s son, Doug Ingle Jr., on keyboards, mainly touches on rock and R&B.;
Music starts at 10 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are available at all G&B; outlets and at the door.
