Profile
Uriah Heep is an English rock band formed in London in 1969. The original lineup featured David Byron (vocals), Mick Box (guitar), Paul Newton (bass), and Ken Hensley (keyboards), along with a succession of drummers, settling on Lee Kerslake for the band's classic period in the early 70s. Membership has changed frequently, with Box being the only constant. Their original style combined heavy psychedelic rock with some progressive tendencies, moving to more mainstream rock by the mid-70s.
