STRAY + DEL BROMHAMS BLUES DEVILS
Saturday, October 12th
STRAY made their mark in the late 60s by owning lighting rigs, pyrotechnics and transport in a time when most bands were content to just get up onstage and play.
STRAY's first British headline tour in the winter of 1971 had RED DIRT and STEVE TILSTON supporting. The band would also tour Europe as support to TEN YEARS AFTER. They would promptly return to the UK for more support shows to the likes of STATUS QUO before touring nationwide with THE GROUNDHOGS. At this point STRAY took on the services of manager Wilf Pine.
Securing another Reading Festival slot in 1972 - appearing with STATUS QUO, TEN YEARS AFTER and WIZZARD - STRAY supported THE GROUNDHOGS once more in August 1973, experimenting with additional live musicians; including keyboard player Andy Powell, backing vocalists and brass section. STRAY also opened for BLACK SABBATH at Alexandra Palace in the same month.
It's worth noting that no less an act than IRON MAIDEN covered the STRAY track 'All In Your Mind' as the B side to the 'Holy Smoke' single. STRAY would be announced as the special guests to veteran Rockers MOUNTAIN on their Spring 2002 UK tour.
