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).

BIOGRAPHY:

Great bassist and composer, Bruce Lynch appears in many fantastic albums.

Bruce Lynch was born in New Zealand in 1948. He started playing bass in several bands from Auckland, but after marrying singer Suzanne Donaldson (known as Suzanne Lynch), they went to England around 1973. He's also father to Andy Lynch (guitarist in New Zealand bands Zed and Atlas).


CAT STEVENS BAND


This was Cat Stevens Band in March 1974:

Linda Lewis and Jim Cregan toured supporting Cat Stevens during 1974, so Cregan, Lewis and Max Middleton also appeared as a guest playing in some songs by Cat. There's a live album recorded from that tour, Saturnight (Live in Tokyo), recorded in June 1974. Originally, it was released only in Japan, as a benefit album in behalf of UNICEF. But the great news is that in 2001, this album would see a worldwide reissue on CD.

And still another different lineup for Cat Stevens Band in 1974, without backing singers:

For his tour in November 1975, Cat Stevens reverted to a smaller backing band:

Please, I´d like to know if Chico Batera and Mark Warner played in the band in that same tour. Does anybody know?

This was the big backing band for Cat Stevens´ Earth tour in February 1976:
