Biography

Chris Slade has already established a significant storied career. Blessed in 1946, his initial claim to popularity was playing over the Tom Jones one “IT ISN’T Uncommon.” He remained with Jones until 1969, when he still left to end up being the drummer in an organization known as Toomorrow with Olivia Newton-John. By 1972, he previously shifted to Manfred Mann’s Globe Band and used them until 1978. His following true group was with Jimmy Web page and Paul Rodgers within the Company. That band wished him so terribly which they waited almost a year for him to complete a previous dedication with David Gilmour. Following the demise from the Company, Slade installed with AC/DC for a long time. Then became the drummer for the prog rock and roll group Asia.
