The Silver Eagle - The Astor Disaster (1967)
The Silver Eagle was an one-single band from New York. “The Astor Disaster (The Tragic Ordeal of Theodore Nobbs)” / “True As A Brand New Lie” was released by MGM on May 18, 1967. The black humorous, psychedelic “Astor Disaster” is about a man named Theodore who tries to commit suicide by throwing himself from the roof of the Astor Hotel, but becomes an attraction for the gathered crowd, instead. The single was also released in the UK under the title “Theodore”, which displeased the writers Jeffrey Myers and John Farrell.
