Yo el Rey

Born in Bradford City, a place once described as "like descending into Hell", we are a guitar rock four piece with a penchant for sleazy riffs and even sleazier lyrics. We have dirty guitars and even dirtier minds. If we can't convert you to our ways, we just might rape your ears and piss on your mattress, then be on our merry way. This is the life we have come to know, and this is the life we invite you into. Our manifesto is a simple one, we want to make your girlfriends dance so we can mate with them, ...and when your girlfriends haven't quenched our thirst, ...you will be next.

Wishbone Ash

Wishbone Ash can trace its origins back to Torquay, Devon, England, a seaside resort in the southwest of the country. It was here that Martin Turner and Steve Upton first performed together; Turner on bass, Upton on drums, before moving to London in 1969 to seek fame and fortune. It was in the capital that the decision was made to place an advert for a keyboard player and a lead guitarist. The resulting audition threw up 2 guitar leads but nobody could decide who to choose and the trademark twin lead sound of Wishbone Ash was born.

John Campbell

Guitarist, singer and songwriter John Campbell had the potential of turning a whole new generation of people onto the blues in the 1990s, much the same way Stevie Ray Vaughan did in the 1980s. His vocals were so powerful and his guitar playing so fiery, you couldn't help but stop what you were doing and pay attention to what you were hearing. But unfortunately, because of frail health and a rough European tour, he suffered a heart attack while sleeping on June 13, 1993, at the age of 41.
