Wishbone Ash

Wishbone Ash are a British rock band who achieved success in the early and mid-1970s. Their popular albums included Wishbone Ash, Pilgrimage, Argus, Wishbone Four, There's the Rub, and New England. Wishbone Ash are noted for their extensive use of harmony twin lead guitars, which had been attracting electric blues bands since Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page had played together in the Yardbirds in 1966. Their contributions helped Andy Powell and Ted Turner to be voted "Two of the Ten Most Important Guitarists in Rock History", and to appear in the "Top 20 Guitarists of All Time". Melody Maker described Powell and Turner as "the most interesting two guitar team since the days when Beck and Page graced The Yardbirds". Several notable bands have cited Wishbone Ash as an influence, including Iron Maiden, Van Halen, Thin Lizzy, Metallica, Dream Theater and Overkill.
Formed in Torquay, Devon, in 1969, out of the ashes of trio The Empty Vessels, which had been formed by Wishbone Ash's founding member Martin Turner in 1963 and complemented by Steve Upton in 1966. The original Wishbone Ash line-up was completed by guitarists/vocalists Andy Powell and Ted Turner.
