A word from the photographer
ON THIS NIGHT : U.K
Known as supergroup of sort’s, I was very happy to get to see UK at Madison Square Garden in New York City as they opened for Jethro Tull in October of 1979. Founded by drummer Bill Bruford formerly of Yes and King Crimson, and bassist/vocalist John Wetton formerly of King Crimson and Roxy Music, then adding Eddie Jobson keyboardist and electric violinist as well as Allan Holdsworth on guitar. With only Eddie Jobson and John Wetton remaining, I photographed their second album, Danger Money tour.
They were a three-piece band now adding drummer Terry Bozzio from Frank Zappa’s band. I had known the first album two years earlier with the opening track “Alaska”. I loved that one, it was a great stereo system “test” song. These were top shelf musicians of the highest order. John Wetton would go on to form Asia, yet another super group. Terry Bozzio became known as a super drummer playing one of the largest drum kits of all time. I got some OK images from my seat and was happy just to get to see a rare and short-lived band of this caliber.
