Nazareth

The Scottish hard rock quartet Nazareth had a handful of hard rock hits in the late '70s, including the proto-power ballad "Love Hurts." Formed in 1968, the band featured vocalist Dan McCafferty, guitarist Manny Charlton, bassist Pete Agnew, and drummer Darrell Sweet. The band had relocated to London by 1970, and they released their self-titled debut album in 1971. Both Nazareth and 1972's Exercises received favorable attention by British hard rockers, but it was 1973's Razamanaz that moved them into the U.K. Top Ten (both "Broken Down Angel" and "Bad Bad Boy" were hit singles). Loud 'n' Proud and Rampant (both 1974) followed the same formula, yet were slightly less successful.

Released the following year, Hair of the Dog established Nazareth as an internationally popular hard rock band. Featuring their revamped version of the Everly Brothers' "Love Hurts," the album sold over a million copies in the U.S. Until the end of the '70s, the band continued successfully as a quartet, releasing a series of Top 100 albums. In 1979, they added former Sensational Alex Harvey Band guitarist Zal Cleminson to their lineup; he left after recording two albums -- 1979's No Mean City and 1980's Malice in Wonderland -- and was replaced by former Spirit keyboardist John Locke. Following the 1981 live album 'Snaz, guitarist Bill Rankin also joined the group; Locke left soon after his addition and Rankin switched to keyboards.

By this time, their commercial appeal had dwindled in both the U.K. and the U.S. By the mid-'80s, Nazareth was left without a record contract, so the band went on hiatus for a few years. They returned in 1992 with No Jive, which failed to gain an audience in America and Europe. In 1999, Nazareth resurfaced yet again with Boogaloo. While touring the album, original drummer Darrell Sweet passed away at the age of 51 from a heart attack; bassist Agnew's son Lee took over drum duties. After a ten-year break, the band returned with their 21st studio album, 2008's The Newz, which was released to coincide with the band's 40th anniversary. 2011 saw the release of Big Dogz, and the group followed this up with their 23rd studio album, Rock 'n' Roll Telephone, which was slated for release in 2014. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

This song is the reason I picked up a guitar some 40 years ago and haven't put it back down. Some crud broke into my cousins house in 74 and stole all kinda crap, she (my cousin) was more upset about them stealing her Razamanaz album then she was about anything else. :) This song is just pure hardcore in your face Rock and Roll. 1000 Stars outta 10.

Dont read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you dont post this you will die in 2 days. Now youve started reading so dont stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it works.
