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 featuring the single, This Fight Tonight, which became a massive hit throughout Europe and sent the band to number 1 in Germany. Then came Rampant, My White Bicycle, Hair Of The Dog (Sonofabitch), Dream On and their worldwide hit song, Love Hurts. They became popular around the world and did lots of tours.
From 1971 till now Nazareth have recorded 23 studio albums, earning them platinum, gold and silver awards throughout the world with 3 platinum and 8 gold albums coming from Canada alone.
Their latest release, Rock n’ Roll Telephone (2014) was described by one music press critic simply as “one more masterpiece” so we’ll just leave it at that.
The line up today consists of Kimmy Murrison (Guitarist); Lee Agnew( Drummer since Darrell Sweet’s death in 1999); Pete Agnew (Founder member) and Carl Sentence (New singer replacement for Dan McCafferty).
Over the last five decades Nazareth have played literally thousands of concerts worldwide ranging from rock clubs to stadiums.
Nazareth, still remain one of the World’s premier rock bands.
