Bio / info
Love was an American rock group founded by singer/songwriter Arthur Lee in 1965, along with Bryan MacLean (guitar, vocals). Lee wrote most of the songs, although some of their best known songs were written by Bryan MacLean. The initial version of the band featured Alban "Snoopy" Pfisterer (drums), Ken Forssi (bass), and Johnny Echols (lead guitar), though personnel changes were frequent from the beginning. In 1968, after three albums, MacLean left the band, and Lee dismissed all of the others, forming a new edition of the band with a more blues-oriented style that released another three albums. From that point onward Lee and Love were plagued by record label issues that left several albums recorded but not released until decades later. In about 1974, Lee disbanded the group, though reunions of various former members happened starting in 1978, though Lee also played shows using the Love name using entirely new musicians. Starting in 2001, Lee began performing as Arthur Lee and Love, meeting increasing success until illness forced Lee to retire. He died from leukemia in 2006, and Echols has carried on using the Love name since then.
