The Musicians' Olympus

This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Barry St John (backing vocals)

(Also known as: Eliza Casey) BRIEF BIOGRAPHY:

Great singer, Barry St John was born Eliza Janet Thomson in 1943 in Glasgow, England. She released some solo singles in the mid 60s, but she´s more known as a lead and backing vocalist for many great bands, appearing in lots of albums.

I haven´t had time to write a proper page to her, so this is just my initial tribute to a great talent and career.

After starting singing with the band Bobby Patrick & The Big Six, she moved from Glasgow to London.

In 1967, she joined The Krew, led by sax player Howie Casey. They married in 1969. That´s why Barry also appears credited sometimes as Eliza Casey.
