Eddy Grant

voc, *1948 GY, Demerara-Mahaica
Musician / Producer of Rock, Pop, R&B/Soul and Reggae
A.k.a. Edmond Montague Grant The Coach House Rhythm Section

Born: 5 March 1948 in Plaisance, British Guiana (also spelled Guyana). Musician, and producer. When he was still a young boy, his parents emigrated to the UK, where he settled. He had his first number one hit in 1968, when he was the lead guitarist and main songwriter of the multiracial group, The Equals. It was his self-penned song "Hold Me Closer / Baby, Come Back" that flew to the chart summit. The tune also later topped the UK singles chart again when covered by Pato Banton. He's the brother of reggae deejay and singer Rudy Grant (also known as Little Brother Grant and The Mexicano). Grant runs ICE.
