I love writing about classic bands.I am currently listening to Look at Yourself i always liked Uriah Heep especially when they had David Byron on vocals and Gary Thain on bass.RIP guys.
Saw them a few years ago at a rock festival they blew every band on the bill away!
I am sure folks on here saw these guys in their heyday.

I like their old stuff but I love the "Abominog" album. Very metal! I seen them open for Judas Priest that year. Great double bill, Uriah Heep really held their own.

Grand Funk, Uriah Heep and Black Sabbath were my favorite bands back in the
70s.

Anyone remember that great concert on ABC's "In Concert", pretty much the same
set list as the 'Live '74" great show.

Abominog is good, I prefer the earlier stuff w/ Ken Hensley in the band.

Slide Guitarist Mick Box is the only original member still in the band, ALthough former Spiders from Mars, bassist Trevor Bolder has been playing with them the past few years.

Loved these guys and had a few of their albums back in the early 70's! (Was some pretty great cover art on these.) Haven't listened to any of their new stuff and haven't heard the old stuff for some time now.

It never occured to me until now, but there may be a subliminal Christian message in these lyrics.

Easy Living - Uriah Heep

This is a thing I've never known before
It's called easy livin'
This is a place I've never seen before
And I've been forgiven

Easy livin' and I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place in my heart

Somewhere along the lonely road I had tried to find ya
Day after day on the windy road I had walked behind ya

Easy livin and I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place in my heart

Waiting, watching
Wishing my whole life away
Dreaming, thinking
Ready for my happy day
And some easy livin'!

Somewhere along the lonely road I had tried to find you
Day after day on the windy road I had walked behind you

Easy livin' and I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place in my heart
Easy livin' and I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place in my heart

that's the great thing about Art, many ways to interpret it.

I still own Demons and Wizards , The Magician's Birthday, and Sweet Freedom. One of those bands with a truely unique instantly identifiable sound.

I remember that there was no middle ground with these guys. Either you loved the interplay between David Bryon's screeching falsetto, Mick Box's "alien garbage disposal" guitar sound and Gary Thain's thumping, blooping bass or you hated it .

File me under loved it...

Count me in as a fan of the old Heep. Nowdays they sound like Asia (gag). I use to have that "Live" double album with the gatefold sleeve. It came with a big booklet inside full of concert photos. I loaned it to a buddy and he never seemed to want to give it back. Finally after an extended period of time I stopped by his place to pick it up. He had dismantled the book and put the pages up on his walls as posters. Man I was pissed! He eventually gave it back but the booklet was not intact... only pieces. I think he gave me some weed to make up for it. It's one of only 20 or so albums that I still have and I was looking through it the other day and I got hacked off all over again. Can anyone name the "southern rock" band that former Heep keyboardist Ken Hensley joined in the mid to late 80's? In closing I'd just like to say that if they haven't done it before I'd give my left one to hear Mule cover "Stealin". I think they'd reinvent and take to new heights.

I saw that tour also. In NYC. I loved Mick Box back then. I still have the Look at Yourself LP with the mirror on the cover. I'm not sure what others I have, maybe one or two, but I loved Easy Living back then.

I remember seeing Deep Purple and Uriah Heep (the Deep Heep tour ) in Fayetteville, NC around '72/'73 twice (their first show did so well there, they came back through again at the end of the tour). Both great "live" bands, and LOUD!!!. Definely "Ear ringing" Rock n' Roll.

I love the 'HEEP'. All there albums have been re-mastered with bonus material in recent years. The stuff they are doing now with Bernie Shaw on vocals is as good as anything from their early days. They are in the studio as we speak putting together their latest album. Sadly though Lee Kerslake has had to leave the band due to on-going health problems. He will be sadly missed pounding away at the back. See them every time they hit these shores, and I strongly recommend if they ever play any where near your home-town then you get yourself along.

Actually saw Blackfoot when Ken Hensley was playing with them, and they did a "killer version" of Easy Living. Thought it was cool that Blackfoot would add the song to their set.

Met up with all the original members of Blackfoot back in 1980 at a hotel in Liverpool before their opening slot supporting the Scorpions. Took time out to speak and pose for the obligatory photos with myself and a couple of friends for over an hour. A truly great bunch of musicians. Pity it all went tits up when Rickie took to touring with a bunch of sidemen.

Not sure, but BF went belly up way before Gary Rossington extended a hand up to Rickey Medlocke. Rickey seemed to have some ego problems (imagine that) and kicked out Charlie Hargrett because he was "too old looking." In the old Gritz Archive there is an interview with all the original members of Black Foot. Rickey is painted in less than flattering tones let's just say. Of course there is a Black Foot Band still operating (with 0 original members?) with Rickey Medlocke's blessing. Still remember the heyday. Marauder is my favorite album. I also caught the show with Ken Hensley ... and Wizard from Mother's Finest.
