Tucky Buzzard

British band Tucky Buzzard evolved from a band called The End, who performed in the late 60’s.

The group’s 1971 debut gig at the Whisky in the US was memorable for the fact that a veteran security guard at the club died of a heart attack after pursuing three teenage gate-crashers.

Singer Jimmy Henderson initially had a limited voice, and the band were originally largely written-off by the music press as run-of-the-mill hard rock/heavy metal fare. By their fourth album, Allright On The Night (1973), even Rolling Stone admitted they had improved “on a grand scale,” and praised Henderson for approaching Jagger or Daltrey territory.

Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman produced their albums, and – perhaps unsurprisingly – a number of Tucky Buzzard album tracks sounded like they would have been at home on a Stones LP.

These guys never really figured out where they were going, but they made some great tracks along the way.
