remember with Upp, the crowd loved us even though we were the support
band.....(they) gave us an encore (and) Widowmaker got really pissed off,
Steve Ellis and Ariel Bender were giving us black looks... we didn't care
so we did the encore. Friars loved us.....Ellis goes on and says "now for
some real rock n roll"....... the crowd groaned.......All the very best to
all at Friars...where did the years go?
what happened next
Internal problems put paid
Widowmaker and Ellis walked during their second album and didn't appear
on it. He toured as Love Affair (his old band) for some time and is a solo
artiste these days. Ariel Bender (Luther Grosvenor) has formed the Ariel
Bender Band. Daisley answered Ritchie Blackmore's call in 1977.
