The Balls

Although this short-lived UK rock act barely managed 2 yrs of existence after being formed in February 1969, they’re worth documentation among the initial true ‘supergroups’, before that much-abused term was invented. The line-up of ex-Moody Blues vocalist Denny Laine (b. Brian Hines, 29 Oct 1944, Jersey, Route Islands; vocals, electric guitar), ex-Move people Trevor Burton (b. Trevor Iresons, 9 March 1944, Ashton, Warwickshire, Britain) and Steve Gibbons (b. Birmingham, Western world Midlands, Britain; vocals), was augmented at different moments by Keith Clever (drums; ex-Lemon Tree), Richard Tandy (b. 26 March 1948, Birmingham, Britain; keyboards), Alan White (drums; ex-Plastic Ono Music group), Jackie Lomax (b. 10 Might 1944, Wallasey, Merseyside, Britain; vocals), and Mike Kellie (b. 24 March 1947, Birmingham, Western world Midlands, Britain; drums, ex-Spooky Teeth). They released a unitary in January 1971, per month before they split-up, economically supported by their originator/supervisor Tony Secunda. ‘Combat For My Nation’ failed, though it was seriously plugged by the united kingdom pirate radio place Geronimo.
