The Sweet personified the Glam Rock era of the 1970s in the UK, showcasing their distinctive glitter and glam makeup. Beyond their iconic visual style, The Sweet also wielded significant influence in the realm of pure rock music. Their timeless hits continue to resonate, and the present lineup, featuring the original guitarist Andy Scott, consistently leaves audiences clamoring for an encore!
Andy Scott/Elastic Band
The Elastic Band rose phoenix-like from the ashes of The Silverstone Set. As mentioned elsewhere, the night they
played support for The Jimi Hendrix Experience in Manchester was a life changing moment for Andy and Ted Yeadon.
In May 1967, The Silverstone Set were booked for a tour of Portugal but due to the fact that the band had already
split, this effectively provided The Elastic Band’s debut. Whatever was lacking in rehearsals was certainly
camouflaged by enthusiasm. They were finally on their way. Everything stepped up a level. They were gigging constantly
all over the UK, TV appearances and a record deal! There is much archive material from this period – enjoy.
