DAVID BYRON was a magnetic, charismatic front man who came to world wide fame as lead singer with URIAH HEEP.

David left Uriah Heep in 1976 after 10 superb albums and countless tours and his first post Heep project in 1977 was ROUGH DIAMOND followed by a solo album ‘Baby Faced Killer’.

The desire to play live, perform and front his own band was strong and he then formed The DAVID BYRON BAND and released in 1981 ‘On The Rocks’ enticing a young but already highly regarded guitarist, ROBIN GEORGE to work with him. It was an inspired decision with all original tracks on the LP release credited to Byron/George as composers.

Remastered by Robin George with three bonus tracks added, the last album David recorded before he died in 1985.

MUSICIANS
David Byron, Robin George, Mel Collins, Bob Jackson, Roger Flavelle, John Shearer, Stevie Bray

Reviews

...the perfect album for tennis raquet air guitarists

www.tnt-audio.com (July 2010)


This re-mastered release comes with excellent art work...and three bonus tracks...For fans of David Byron both On the Rocks and Lost & Found (also available on Angel Air) are absolute must-haves.

Jeff Perkins, Eurorock (July 2010)


...overall you end up with quite a satisfying listen that proves another positive reminder of one of rock music's great voices...

Bill Leslie, www.getreadytorock.com (July 2010)


..Dismissed at the time as nothing more than a collection of faded glories from a has-been, in actuality Byron's singing almost takes him back to the great days of Heep, while the songs suggest an artist revitalised...

Classic Rock magazine (Summer 2010)


...an absolutely cracking album full of Bluesy Rock driven by great guitar and keyboards...a great reminder of a fine, and sadly missed, rock frontman.

Classic Rock Society (July 2010)


...for David, this album demonstrates that any thoughts of him being written off for good at this stage of his career were a bit premature, because when the spirit moved him and he was on top of his game, David Byron was definitely one of the best vocalists the rock world has ever seen.

...David was born an entertainer, anyone can tell

...a workmanlike blend of live and studio material

Kevin Bryan, Stirling Advertiser (July 2010)


...this 1981 album is a great showcase for...David Byron's larger-than-life approach...

Classic Rock magazine (October 2010)


This collaboration with guitarist Robin George also boasted some fine work from saxist Mel Collins...

Kevin Bryan, various regional papers (January 2011)


...pretty damn good. It's certainly not prog, but it's a great showcase for Byron's larger-than-life approach

Classic Rock magazine (January 2011)


...final attempt to recapture former glories...also boasted some fine work from saxist Mel Collins...

Kevin Bryan, Stirling Advertiser (March 2011)
