While reading a potted online bio of Dave "Clem" Clempson - as I'm planning to go and see JCM (Jon Hiseman, Clem, Mark Clarke) next month, I read that following the split of Bakerloo, Clem and Cozy Powell planned to for a new band - recruiting one David Pegg on bass.  Clem was then approached to join Colosseum, so the band never happened, but all three went on to exciting pastures new - Jeff Beck and Fairport (& Tull).

Interesting.  Never heard that, although Cozy does play on Harvey Andrews' Writer of Sings album, I think (from memory) with Peggy.

The new trio (Clempson, Powell, Pegg) was going to be called "The Beast" !     (source : Meet On The Ledge by Patrick Humphries)

I seem to recall that Clem briefly formed a 'power trio' with Cozy on drums and Greg Ridley (ex Spooky Tooth. Humble pie) in bass circa 1975...
Saw him in Oxford with the reformed Colosseum (late 90s??) .He was fab!

Can anyone think of another band who have had more lead singers than Fairport?

I think 8 : Jude, Ian, Richard, Sandy, Swarb, Trevor, Simon and Chris with Ashley, Peggy, Maart also featuring every so often.

I don't NMaart would consider himself a *lead* singer....and you#'ve forgotten Simon as himself!
