Between November 5 to 10, 2011 Rick Springfield, Darryl Cotton, Beeb Birtles and Rick Brewer reformed Zoot for the first and last time.
Zoot formed in Adelaide in the mid 60s and broke up in Melbourne in 1971. Every member of the band went on to a new success. Rick Springfield became a solo star and actor, Darryl Cotton has a solo hit and hosted a TV show, Beeb formed Mississippi with Graeme Goble and then Little River Band and Rick Brewer joined The Ferrets.
Zoot reunited for the Rick Springfield and Friends cruise in the Caribbean in November. Plans were underway for some Australian shows when tragedy struck. Darryl Cotton was diagnosed with liver cancer and passed away one year ago tomorrow (July 27, 2012).
The concert from the cruise was recorded and filmed and will be released as a live CD/DVD.
