In 1965, PF Sloan's heartfelt song "Eve of Destruction," performed by Barry McGuire, became a Billboard number one hit.
The anti-war anthem was one of the first protest songs to make the pop charts. It became the rallying cry for supporters of the 26th Amendment to the Constitution, which changed the voting age from 21 to 18.
Sloan wrote a string of hits in the '60s, including "Secret Agent Man" (recorded by Johnny Rivers), "You Baby" (The Turtles) and "Where Were You When I Needed You" (The Grassroots). - excerpt from the NPR radio program on PF Sloan.
