    WishBone Ash : Band that made a Change

    No idea how many of u have heard to this band .... But here are some details ...

    Wishbone Ash is a British classic rock band, formed in 1969. Bassy Martin Turner and drummer Steve Upton were looking for guys to form a band . After an extensive search for a guitar player, the band could not decide between the final two candidates, Andy Powell and Ted Turner. Powell suggested that they try both guitar players "just to see what it sounds like." Unbeknownst to Powell, he was helping to pioneer a brand new technique in rock: the "twin lead" harmonizing guitar sound. Though the band was heavily rooted in the blues, the Wishbone Ash twin lead sound also included strong elements of folk, progressive rock, and classical music.

    So all the harmonised leads we here are due to these dudes ....
