For tens of thousands of his dedicated fans, David Byron remains THE voice of Uriah Heep. Byron rose to prominence with Heep in the early 70s, having previously served out an apprenticeship with Heep precursors The Stalkers as well as singing on sessions with Elton John.
Byron presided vocally over all of Heep’s early triumphs, including landmark albums such as ‘Salisbury’, ‘Look At Yourself’, ‘Demons & Wizards’ and ‘Return To Fantasy’. However, in 1976 (after recording ten LPs with the band), Byron was sacked after a bout of internal feuding and was replaced by Lucifer’s Friend vocalist, John Lawton.
At the height of his power and popularity and while still a member of Heep, Byron recorded his debut solo album, ‘Take No Prisoners’ during the Winter of 1975 with contributions from Heep members, guitarist Mick Box, drummer Lee Kerslake and keyboardist/guitarist Ken Hensley all grace the albums original ten tracks.
