Adrian Gurvitz was born in London and is mostly known for the 1982 worldwide hit ballad Classic. This is in total contrast to his first 1967 chart success as lead guitarist/lead singer with the band The Gun, whose one and only chart success was Race With the Devil, rarely heard today but widely regarded as the 'ancestor' of the entire Heavy Metal genre.

  • Simply Classic!!! :-)
  • Classic
  • when i was a kid i thought it was "gotta ride a classic, gotta ride it in an attic" and used to think "wtf, who rides a bike in an attic?"
  • remember sitting in the room while he was at the piano writting this long time ago
  • [tag]the moody blues connected[/tag]
  • LOVE HIS SONGSSSSSSSSSSSS YUP !
  • Classic is no epic: "Race With the Devil" is an epic making Adrian the pioneer of heavy metal. Classic is good for commercial music listeners, but it isn't surely Adrian's finest work.
  • Man Classic is an epic!!
  • Well for me Classic is one of his best! Love it!
  • What a shame...classic is the only listened song and it's probably one of his worst works...how underrated and misunderstood have you been Adrian?
