Biography

Antony Laurence Carey (born October 16, 1953, Turlock, California) was a rock and heavy metal keyboardist and Hammond organ player for the band Rainbow from 1975 to 1977 whose career as a soloist, participant in other bands, producer, etc., began in 1971 and continues to expand.

Career

With the band Rainbow, Carey appeared on the studio album Rainbow Rising (1976) and on the live albums On Stage (1977) and Live in Germany (1994). Carey performed the keyboard introduction to “Tarot Woman”, the first track on the Rainbow Rising album and the keyboard solo on “A Light in the Black”, the last cut on the album.

He had a minor hit in the early 1980s with “I Won’t Be Home Tonight”, and then a bigger hit in 1984 with “A Fine, Fine Day”, which reached #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks charts. A follow-up single, “The First Day of Summer”, reached #33 on the Hot 100 in July 1984. Both songs are featured on the album, Some Tough City, which hit #60 on the Billboard 200 album chart. Carey opened for Night Ranger on many dates of their 1984 tour in support of this album. His 1985 follow-up album, Blue Highway, did not score a hit.

He also fronted the science-fiction-themed group Planet P Project (initially called just Planet P), which he used as a vehicle for his solo work. Planet P Project released two albums, Planet P (on Geffen Records) in 1983 and Pink World (on MCA Records) in 1984, for which he wrote the lyrics and music, sang the lead vocals, and played most of the instruments.

    I have been a TC fan since he was with Richie Blackmore and Rainbow. He has just gotten better with age. Now some of his music is getting hard to come by.Damn shame too. Even his web site has a limited number cd's for sale.But one treasures what one has......Damn the man has talent

    Tony Carey's "A FIne, Fine Day" should have made me curious in the 80's... now I discover him in 2009 - delight nevertheless.
