Procol Harum

Band, 1967-1977 GB

After the rhythm & blues band The Paramounts disbanded in 1966, singer Gary Brooker helped form Procol Harum early in 1967. In July 1967 the band got their first #1 hit "A Whiter Shade of Pale", co-written by Brooker & Reid, becoming one of the first real "symphonic rock" songs. A lot of albums and singles were released afterwards, but never enjoyed the success of their first single. The line up for their first single was: Gary Brooker: vocals and piano Matthew Fisher: Hammond organ David Knights: bass Ray Royer: guitar. Drums by session drummer Bill Eyden. Procol Harum re-formed in October 1991 and recorded "The Prodigal Stranger" with this line-up: Brooker - vocals and piano Keith Reid - words Fisher - hammond organ with guests. Dave Bronze - bass Mark Brzezicki - drums Jerry Stevenson - mandolin and guitar
