•  Graham Bell (born 24 April 1948, in Blyth, Northumberland, England, died 2 May 2008) was a pop and rock singer. His father, Jimmy Bell, was a well known local singer and his mother, Leonora Rogers, was in show business prior to marriage after which she was heavily involved in local music and dance. Graham made a solo single in 1966, and a solo album in 1972 with Tim Hinkley, Mel Collins and Ian Wallace. He was a member of Skip Bifferty (aka Heavy Jelly), and Every Which Way, a band formed by Brian Davison formerly of the The Nice. Musical style was jazzy Prog Rock with guitar from John Hedley playing call and response with Bell’s blues shout vocals. Bell joined his old mates from Skip Bifferty to form Bell & Arc in July 1971, with John Turnbull, Mickey Gallagher, Bud Beadle, Kenny Craddock, Steve Gregory, and Alan White. They rapidly built a strong following around London and in the phrase current at the time “blew Joe Walsh off the stage” at a sold-out gig at The Roundhouse.
Bell was tempted away as a solo artist to record an album with Bob Johnson who produced Bob Dylan. He then appeared in “Tommy The Opera”. After this it was reported that Pete Townshend produced an album for him but it never saw the light of day. He dodged the limelight for many years before cropping up in Snowy White’s Blues Agency in 1989. He also played on Carol Grimes’ “Warm Blood” in 1974, with Tommy Eyre, Jess Roden, John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick and Henry Lowther. Graham Bell died at his London home on 2 May 2008 following a short battle with cancer. (Wiki)
