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).

They released two singles: ´I just want to make love to you / Mean woman blues ´ (June 1964) and ´Seventh son / Let´s make it, pretty baby´ (October 1964), with no success.

In December 1964, the band teamed with singer Rod Stewart.

In December 1964, The Soul Agents teamed with singer Rod Stewart, who was starting his solo career. They started to be billed as Rod Stewart And The Soul Agents:

The band released a third single, ´Don't break it up / Gospel train´ (February 1965), but without Rod Stewart as he had a contract signed with a different record label than the band.

In February 1965, Johnny Keeping left the band.

This was Rod Stewart And The Soul Agents in February 1965:

ELTON JOHN BAND


Roger met Elton John at Dick James Studios in the late Sixties. Roger played in many Elton demos, and he was called to play in Elton´s first album.

In 1969, Elton (still Reg Dwight) and Caleb made a private album (as far as I know, it's still unreleased) under the name Bread and Beer Band:

ELTON JOHN BAND #?

Bernie Calvert

The only song released from it was one single, 'Dick Barton Theme/Breakdown blues' (1969, Decca; reissued in 1973), which was part later of some compilations.

In July 1969, Elton John recorded some tracks for BBC in two different sessions, both times backed by 3/4 of Hookfoot:

HOOKFOOT


Hookfoot


Around April 1970, Caleb assembles his own band, called Hookfoot, reuniting several session musicians for artists on the DJM label (being Elton John the most famous of them):

HOOKFOOT #1
Apr 70-1971
Caleb Quaye
guitar, vocals, keyboards
Ian Duck
harmonica, vocals
Dave Glover
bass
Roger Pope
drums, vocals

The band started recording with Elton John at the end of 1967, and backed Elton in different concerts, as well as playing in some of Elton´s early albums.

ELTON JOHN BAND (again)


In April 1970, just a few days after his 2nd album Elton John was released, Elton played some sessions for the BBC. At that time, he still had no band, so he used his friends from Hookfoot, as well as The Chanter Sisters for background vocals:

Elton John returned the favour to the Chanter Sisters playing in their album Birds of a feather.

Elton John plays another special concert for the BBC in May 1970, with Hookfoot as backing band (although Dee Murray & Nigel Olsson also appear in 1 song):

HOOKFOOT (again)


Hookfoot


Hookfoot


Hookfoot gets a new member around 1971:

HOOKFOOT #2
1971-?
Caleb Quaye
guitar, vocals, keyboards
Ian Duck
harmonica, vocals
Peter Ross
harmonica, vocals
Dave Glover
bass
Roger Pope
drums, vocals

They release their first album, Hookfoot. It comprises songs composed by Caleb, plus renditions of Stephen Stills and Neil Young songs. This first album was very innovative with Caleb switching between guitar and keyboards. It even included a great piano-based jazz instrumental (´Wim Wam´) along with a killer tune (´Movies´) that starts out with Quaye and Duck on acoustic and finishes with Wishbone Ash style double-lead electric.

Hookfoot´s lineup changes a bit, with the arrival of a new guitarist, Bob Kulick, who later collaborated with many bands, such as Kiss, Meat Loaf, and with his own band, Skull:

HOOKFOOT #3
1972-1973
Caleb Quaye
guitar, vocals, keyboards
Ian Duck
harmonica, vocals
Bob Kulick
guitar, vocals
Dave Glover
bass
Roger Pope
drums, vocals

The second album was called Good Times a-Comin´. It´s more straight-ahead rock with Caleb playing through a Leslie amp a lot.

The personnel in Hookfoot changes again, as Bob Kulick leaves the band. The bassist, Dave Glover, also left them, and for a while, they had the special collaboration of superb guitarist (and Caleb's friend) Mick Grabham, playing bass for one month until they got a permanent member:

HOOKFOOT #4
1973
Caleb Quaye
guitar, vocals, keyboards
Ian Duck
harmonica, vocals
Roger Pope
drums, vocals

Fred Gandy got the job as Hookfoot´s new bassist:

HOOKFOOT #5
1973-1974
Caleb Quaye
guitar, vocals, keyboards
Ian Duck
harmonica, vocals
Fred Gandy
bass
Roger Pope
drums, vocals

They finally split up in 1974, and Caleb went to the USA, working as a session musician.

Many years later, a live album appeared: Hookfoot Live In Memphis. It´s not a release through A&M. It is a specialty CD from some German company of a 1973 concert (probably opening for Yes). It was recorded by this last Hookfoot lineup.


KIKI DEE BAND


Kiki Dee Band in 1974 - from left to right: Kiki Dee, Jo Partridge, Phil Curtis (I think), Roger Pope & Bias Boshell


This was the Kiki Dee Band around August 1974, now with Roger Pope (although I think he hadn't joined the band permanently as next month we could find their previous drummer Pete Clarke in the band again):

There are some BBC live recording also featuring Mox guesting on flute and harmonica.

In 1974, Kiki Dee was the opening act for Elton John´s world tour, so when Elton left his long-time drummer Nigel Olsson, he asked Roger Pope to rejoin his band, which he did. In April 1975, this edition of the Kiki Dee Band parted ways.

AND THEN...


Roger Pope


Roger Pope in 1976


I briefly communicated with Roger via email a few years ago. He was trying to build his own official website and told me he had projects to play again (they had reformed Hookfoot with permission of Caleb Quaye). I sent him one photo I had of the Wembley concert with Elton John.

Roger Pope sadly passed away on September 17th, 2013 in Southampton, England after battling with throat and neck cancer. He was 66. He will be remembered by his master and strong playing.
