Biography

Ledgendary Welsh space-rocker associated with most of the many incarnations of Man (aka. The Man Band) and with his own unit, Iceberg. Great lyricist and slide gutarist whose voice and guitar sound was the perfect foil to Man’s more melodic Micky Jones. Bitterly observant but also very funny, Deke takes a precussive approach to his Telecaster and SG; he also plays electric piano on occasions Deke (real name Roger)looks as if he might be Karl Lagerfeld’s twin brother. He has written a well recieved book covering life on the road.

Deke Leonard is still active, but currently pursuing his solo career - which he has done on and off in between his many stints with Man. However as Micky Jones is in any case seriously ill and not likely to return to Man, we have seen the last of Wales’ most enduring rock partnership.

    Deke you are a legend in your own lunchtime. That beautiful slide hook in Day and Night on the Whistle Test in '74 or '75 got me hooked on Man - but then when I came to see you in the Roundhouse you never played it. I've been hacked off about that ever since ;0)
