Personal Quote:

At some of our early shows, we outnumbered the audience!


Original bass guitarist Mike D'Albuquerque left after the band's third album, "On The Third Day"; he was credited as bassist on their next album ("Eldorado"), but the bass parts were mostly played by Jeff Lynne. Kelly Groucutt joined the band in time for their next album, 1975's "Face The Music". See more »
