LUTHER GROSVENOR a.k.a ARIEL BENDER past reads like a who’s who of the rock elite. A member of SPOOKY TOOTH, STEALERS WHEEL, WIDOWMAKER and MOTT THE HOOPLE he has constantly delivered a performance as a guitarist that rates amongst the finest. Luther has always rewritten the guitar players rule book, simply by remembering that technique isn’t everything: you have to have some fun as well.
Having released over the years a number of solo albums Luther has been recording for the past year the “If You Dare” album which captures both his stunning guitar playing as well as his substantial song writing and vocal talents.
His most recent public appearances have been at Film receptions for MOTT THE HOOPLE “The Ballard Of Mott The Hoople” where he has enthralled the audiences with his stories about the group. The film premièred at London Film Festival and recently regionally at Hereford where Luther was born.

...a lot of positive things to say about this album...the arrangements, the variation from emotion laden and lead heavy 'Heroes' to softness of the second version of the title track

...devotees of his brand of unpretentious, melodic rock should find it a more than worthwhile investment...

...a solid...set of soft-rock songs
Fireworks (Sept/Oct 2011)
Grosvenor's first solo set for many moons harks back to the epic ballads that characterised mid-period Spooky Tooth; stripped down but still soaring, especially in the guitar department.
Shindig magazine (August 2011)
The album is pure classic rock with the keyboards that were the foundation of both Spooky Tooth and Mott The Hoople underpinning the tracks, and Grosvenor's guitar soaring over the top...Grosvenor gets to play the sort of guitar that hasn't been heard since the 60s.
