Mud 2 - 70s Rock n Roll

Mud 2

Mud 2
70s Rock n Roll
MUD : Original Members were Les Grey, Rob Davis, Dave Mount and Ray Stiles they had massive hits in the 70s with songs such as Tiger Feet , Oh Boy , Cat Crept In , and the massive Christmas hit Lonely This Christmas.

Syd Twynham turned pro musician in 74 after he joined pop rock band Hector, touring extensively in the UK and abroad. In 1976 he split from Hector and joined rock outfit Babe Ruth, with Ellie Hope and Ray Knott. When Babe Ruth disbanded Syd and other members formed Liquid Gold who then went on to achieve chart success with a string of hits, it was around this time that Syd first met Les Gray, Rob Davis, Ray Stiles and Dave Mount, collectively known as MUD

Whilst still a member of Liquid Gold Syd joined the line-up of mud
in the early eighties playing on stage alongside Les, Rob, Dave, and Ray.
But due to his commitments with Liquid Gold who, were enjoying chart success with Dance Yourself Dizzy - having reached No. 2 in the UK singles chart, syd reluctantly had to take a break from Mud. A few years went by and in 1987 Les and Syd's path crossed again and following a mud line-up change in 1987 Syd re-joined Les bringing with him fellow Liquid Gold member Wole Rothe on drums (who went on to further fame as Drummer with 60s legends The Searchers) and bass player John Berry, they toured as 'Les Gray's Mud all over the UK and Europe, so a new chapter of Mud was born.

In 1998 Phil Wilson replaced Wole Rothe on drums and with Les, Syd and John this line up toured and gigged up until Les Gray's last performance in Belgium on 7th December 2002, after a lengthy illness sadly Les passed away on 21st February 2004.

The sad passing of Les Gray left a huge void on the 70s circuit, but the sound of those hits so well performed by Les and the original Mud members will continue today courtesy of the Les Gray estate as after consultation with original band members and Les Gray's estate it was decided to put the current line up together and tour as MUD II featuring members of Les Gray's Mud.

MUD II are:
Syd Twyham
Phil Wilson
Chris Savage
Marc Michalski
