War, originally called Eric Burdon & War and often typeset as WAR, is an American funk band from California, known for the hit songs “Low Rider”, “Spill the Wine”, “The Cisco Kid” and “Why Can’t We Be Friends?“. Formed in 1969, War was a musical crossover band which fused elements of rock, funk, jazz, Latin music, R&B, and reggae. The band also transcended racial and cultural barriers with a multi-ethnic line-up. The band has sold over 50 million records to date. Although War’s lyrics are often socio-political in nature, their music usually had a laid-back, California funk vibe. The music has been sampled and recorded by many singers and groups, ranging from R&B/pop singers such as Janet Jackson to nu metal band Korn and hip-hop groups like TLC. Read on...
