Biography

For the Scottish rock band known just as ‘Gun’ please see Gun.

The Gun (1968-1969) was a short-lived group from England that had a top ten hit with “Race with the Devil” in 1968. Formed by brothers Paul & Adrian Curtis (a.k.a Paul Gurvitz) and Louis Farrell, their first album on Epic was a heavy affair with orchestral touches. Their second album, Gunsight, was already showing signs of the sound that made the Gurvitz brothers later famous.

Still, the band never managed to quite sustain the mainstream success that they had experienced with “Race with the Devil”, competing against other proto-metal musical royalty at the time. After the Gun, they formed Three Man Army and Baker Gurvitz Army, also being notable for having helped Graeme Edge of The Moody Blues with his two solo-albums. Finally Adrian Gurvitz recorded several solo albums.
