WISHBONE ASH Biography


The BeginningThe classic rock bands of the late 60's and early 70's enjoy a unique place in popular musical history. The Beatles had gone their separate ways, Britain had already gone through the Blues Boom, and Psychedelia had made its impact.

The possibilities were infinite. Wishbone Ash, one of the new breed of Progressive Rockers, were quick to seize the opportunity and in 1969, they were among those to take full advantage of this environment, producing their unique brand of melodic rock.

40 years later, having pioneered the use of twin lead guitars, the band has gained world-wide recognition, based firmly on a regime of relentless touring. Wishbone Ash, the quintessential road band, is an acknowledged influence on many other bands including THIN LIZZY and IRON MAIDEN.

Power and melody have made the Ash a hard act to follow, while they are currently being discovered by new generations of loyal rock fans. An exceptional recording and touring career has seen Wishbone Ash weather many changes in record labels, personnel and musical trends, but they have entered the new millennium with most of their vast catalogue intact on CD, an award-winning website and a date sheet the envy of many other bands.
