Uriah Heep – What Pete Pardo Thinks

I found some excellent videos on YouTube by a guy called Pete Pardo from a website called the Sea of Tranquility. On this page are videos of him talking about Uriah Heep.

Heep were never the most fashionable of band. In fact, the critics hated them and I never understood why. Musically varied, good tunes and David Byron was a fantastic singer.

But I liked them. I saw them at the Reading Festival, possibly in 1978. That’s after the classic David Byron era but there were a fine band and made me forget about the drizzle and the mud.

Probably their best known live album is from 1973, Uriah Heep Live, recorded in Birmingham.

Here is Pete.

I have included it in the second division of albums and if it gets enough votes, it can be promoted to the main list.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
