Biography

Wild Horses (UK)

Wild Horses was formed in the summer of 1978 by ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson and ex-Rainbow bassist Jimmy Bain. At an early stage the line-up featured former Stone the Crows and Paul McCartney’s Wings guitarist Jimmy McCulloch and former Small Faces drummer Kenney Jones, but eventually stabilized with the addition of drummer Clive Edwards (ex-Pat Travers, Uli Jon Roth) and guitarist/keyboardist Neil Carter (ex-Wilder, Gilbert O’Sullivan). This line-up recorded the Trevor Rabin-produced “The First Album”, released in the spring of 1980 by EMI who signed the band after their 1979 Reading Festival appearance.

Carter left the band in August 1980 after the band’s UK tour with Ted Nugent in order to join UFO and later Gary Moore. His replacement was guitarist John Lockton (ex-The Next Band, Red Alert) whose first appearance was on the band’s Japanese tour in the autumn of 1980 followed by the release of the “Stand Your Ground” album, co-produced with Kit Woolven, in the spring of 1981.

In June 1981, Robertson and Edwards both left Wild Horses in the wake of the band’s Paris Theatre show in London. Robertson teamed up with Motorhead a year later and recorded “Another Perfect Day” in 1983, before moving on to join fellow Scotsman Frankie Miller on the “Dancing In The Rain” album in 1986. Edwards continued with a number of different acts, including Bernie Marsden’s S.O.S., Grand Prix, and Lionheart.

Bain assembled a new Wild Horses line-up featuring Lockton, former Lautrec stepfather and son team, Reuben (vocals) and Laurence Archer (guitar), and “The Def Leppard E.P.

    Can't say it's my favourite album in the world, but I'm proud to have bought the first album when it was released. It feels like I'm holding a piece of rock history whenever I touch it. Best track IMO is Reservation. Pity it's not playable.
