In 1964 Raymond met up with Lou Clark, Len Ablethorpe and H.Cain to form a band, at that time in Birmingham they were surrounded by talented friends who were doing the same.
Roy Wood, Jeff Lynn, Tony Iommi, Ozzie Osbourne, Bev Bevan, Carl Wayne, Trevor Burton, Steve Gibbons, Dave Pegg, Robert Plant, the list goes on.1967- that’s when Raymond wrote his first hit followed by many more hits here and abroad. His songs were covered by Cliff/Dave Clark/Leapie Lee/Maria Laforie/Daniel O’Donald/Domonic Kirwin/Gladdis Knight and many, many more world wide.
Raymond has continued to write and tour the world playing every venue from large to small. Ronnie Scotts, London, to the Ice Drome, Tulsa USA. The Elbow Room, Birmingham to Wembley Arena.
A fantastic show with great songs spanning 54 years.
