Profile
Wishbone Ash are a British rock band formed in Devon in 1969 as a successor to the group The Empty Vessels. Wishbone Ash achieved some success in the early and mid-70s with several critically acclaimed records. Although the band never had a distinctive frontman as lead vocalist, they were famous for popularizing the twin lead guitar sound, originally with Andy Powell and Ted Turner. Since their founding, the band has been through a number of personnel changes, with Powell being the sole constant. Original bassist Martin Turner has had an active solo career.
