''The Crazy World'' was not long for our world, unfortunately, as Theaker's [[FearOfFlying fear of flying]] had nearly surfaced the band's second world tour. He was quickly replaced by young virtuoso ''[[EmersonLakeAndPalmer Carl Palmer]]'', but the band didn't last as Crane had left to form ''Atomic Rooster,'' taking Palmer with him. With ''World'' gone, Brown soon became a prolific solo performer, making guest appearances on a multitude of albums ever since.

Truly one of the most theatrical musicians ever. Arthur Wilton Brown (b. June 24, 1942) is an obscure man, [[CultClassic but one revered as a]] shining example of CrazyAwesome.

After some short stints in Paris doing soundtracks and work with small R&B bands, Brown formed his iconic band ''The Crazy World of Arthur Brown'' in [[TheSixties 1966]] as a [[PowerTrio trio]] of himself, keyboardist Vincent Crane and drummer Drachen Theaker. They recorded their [[SelfTitledAlbum eponymous debut]] in 1968 with the hit single being...

...well, take a guess.

He was quickly replaced by young virtuoso ''[[EmersonLakeAndPalmer Carl Palmer]]'', but the band didn't last as Crane had left to form ''Atomic Rooster,'' taking Palmer with him. With ''World'' gone, Brown soon became a prolific solo performer, making guest appearances on a multitude of albums ever since.

His solo projects shifted from another short-lived band, ''Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come,'' to self-credited stints in SynthPop. ''The Crazy World'' was born again in 2000[[note]] A lost album, ''Strangelands'', was released in 1989 [[/note]] releasing acclaimed albums including ''Tantric Lover,'' ''Vampire Suite,'' and the crowdfunded ''Zim Zam Zim.''

While his mainstream success was short lived, he is still revered in ProgressiveRock circles as one of the most distinctive voices ever heard. He continues to tour with ''Crazy World,'', [[LongRunners nearly 50 years after his landmark single.]] Truly a CoolOldGuy if there ever was one!
