Artist Portrait

Chris Slade

dr, *1946 GB, Pontypridd
Singer / Musician of Rock

Drummer with Uriah Heep, Manfred Mann's Earth Band and AC/DC, amongst several others. Born 30-10-1946 in Pontypridd, Wales, his first claim to fame was playing with The Squires, the Tom Jones backing group (1963-1969). By 1972, he had moved on to Manfred Mann's Earth Band and played with them until 1978, when he shortly joined with former Earth Band members to form the Band Terra Nova. But this band did not have a lot of success and dissolved quickly. His next real group was with Jimmy Page and Paul Rodgers in The Firm. That band wanted him so badly that they waited several months for him to finish a previous commitment with David Gilmour. After the demise of The Firm, Slade hooked up with AC/DC for quite a while. He then became the drummer for the prog rock group Asia for two albums. Most recently he is the drummer for british power rock group Damage Control.
