    No problem, mate. Dennis has done a bit more than that, but I'm not safe there either. That's the same reason why I didn't open a thread for Clive.
    Any kind of research is appreciated, and of course that's what all this is for anyway [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":)\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]

    He also played in True Brits and on that As Hard As Iron Parts 1 and 2, with Di'Anno.

    Before Maiden he played in a band called Remus Down Boulevard. The only 2 recordings with this band are in a compilation called LIVE-A WEEK AT THE BRIDGE E16 (1978).

    For the ones who wonder what an Praying Mantis sounded like with Dennis Stratton, here's a full album from 1998. Warning: The singer isn't the strongest and this is not heavy music. It's very melodic and polished. I quite like some of the guitar harmonies and solos. It has an eighties hard rock vibe.

    It's by no means important information, but I really like these memories shared by Loopy on his Facebook (I am constantly linking to his site, because he asks for that, hope that's OK),

    The Eagles, Doobie Brothers, 10cc and so forth. It's not news, actually, this is pretty much what it says in Run to the Hills, p. 158-63. Even there, Rod is made responsible for it.

    I think he could have gotten away with it now, but in the early days, image was a huge thing.

    Remember how Lemmy left Hawkwind. He got fired for getting caught with the wrong drugs. Not for getting caught with drugs, but for getting caught with speed instead of LSD.

    Stratton plays Prowler with a cover band called Harris. He plays the solo(!) and does decent backing vox!

    Nicely played Prowler solo. I don't know if he's an active musician, but it seems he still has it.

    After a wait of 32(!) years Lionheart return to the stage with guest vocalist Lee Small.

    Now this man has no small voice. Good singer!
