There’s one sure thing about the music business – it’s a hard road to the top.

And a new band on the local scene from Wilnecote High School have taken that literally by calling themselves Hard Road. The band’s explanation for the title is simple. They called themselves after the Black Sabbath track of that name.

The group was started by lead guitarist Steve Wilson and vocalist David Payne. Later, music teacher Peter Elliott brought his bass guitar along to add some depth to their sound and the other members were recruited along the way.

At the moment they are concentrating on cover versions of other bands’ material, but they have already written two or three of their own compositions.


The full profile and history of Hard Road has yet to be added to TamworthBands.com Call back soon to read the full band details.
