  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 6th 1970, the Grass Roots performed "I'd Wait a Million 'Years" on the CBS-TV program 'The Ed Sullivan Show'...
    One year earlier on June 29th, 1969 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #85; and ten weeks later on September 7th, 1969 it peaked at #15 {for 2 weeks} and also spent 15 weeks on the Top 100...
    On the same 'Sullivan' show the group performed a medley of their hits; “Midnight Confessions {#5 in 1968}, "Let's Live for Today" {#8 in 1967}, and "Temptation Eyes" {#15 in 1971}*...
    Bassist and lead singer "Rob" Grill passed away on July 11th, 2011 at the age of 67...
    May he R.I.P.
    * "Temptation Eyes" did not enter the Top 100 until December 20th, 1970 and peaked at #15 on March 28th, 1971 {and just as a side note; on March 28th “Just My Imagination” by the Temptations was at #1}.
  • Camille from Toronto, Oh1969 is just one of those banner years where sooo much great music was created. This tune by the Grass Roots is a prime example. Great lyrics and vocals.
  • Joel from Columbus, OhI can identify. I have been chasing my best friend, Zoey, for what seems like a million years. She's sweet, kind, attractive, affectionet, etc....
  • Ted from Phoenix, AzThe thumping bass drum at the beginning of this song was a harbinger of things to come; it presaged late-1970s disco.
