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).

Aliki Ashman and Harry Reynolds met during the time of Ginger Baker´s Airforce, when Aliki was one the lead singers and Harry was their tour manager. When Ginger Baker split the band, they joined forces to form the band Ashman-Reynolds. They started recording demos with the great, late Mickey Keene on guitar and Rod Edwards on keyboards, as well as Bob Weston and Keith Boyce. After the recording, the real lineup was:

They started touring along Europe and America.


LONG JOHN BALDRY BAND


Soon after, the band Ashman-Reynolds became Long John Baldry's backing band, along with Denny Ball (who, after a spell of musical inactivity, had gone to audition for John Baldry, and was given five days to learn the set before going on tour in America) and Ian Armit. The band were on a package with Savoy Brown and Fleetwood Mac. This had to be around Winter 1971:

In 1976, Mickey Waller (now re-baptized as Micky Finn) and Bob Weston form a new project with Phil May, called Phil May & The Fallen Angels.

Bob Weston sadly passed away in the beginning of 2012. He was found dead on January 3rd, 2012 at his home, probably due to a gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Although his biggest fame came obviously for his time in Fleetwood Mac, he played in so many great bands that allowed us to enjoy his playing.
