Nazareth is without doubt the biggest Rock Band to emerge from Scotland. They were the pioneers who took Scottish Rock International and paved the way for the many other great Scottish bands that came later... The likes of Big Country, Simple Minds, etc.
The original members first came together in Pete Agnew's band "The Shadettes" in 1968 and changed the name to NAZARETH in 1970.
They toured with Deep Purple in the early 70's where they met Roger Glover who produced their breakthrough album RAZAMANAZ in 1973 that included the hits Broken Down Angel and Bad Bad Boy. The album was followed by Loud'n'Proud later the same year featuring the single, This Fight Tonight, which became a massive hit throughout Europe and sent the band to number 1 in Germany. It was also a huge hit in Canada where the band became the first foreign band to do a coast to coast tour of the country that wasn't just part of a North America tour. When they arrived in the country, they were told it was the fastest selling Canadian tour of all time and in fact had sold out faster than Elvis who had been there recently. As you can imagine, you can still hear a host of "faster than Elvis" jokes in Nazareth dressing rooms to this dayNo Minors permitted
