Scottish musician, guitar player and band member of the group, Average White Band (AWB.)

Most of the group were already veterans of bands of the 60's before their initial debut in July 1972. Their opening act for Eric Clapton in 1973 and a debut album, "Show Your Hand," was a very slow start and the band did not achieve much success until 1974 with the release of another album, "Pick Up the Pieces." The record's huge success was tempered by the 23 September 1974 death of drummer Robbie McIntosh at a Hollywood party after overdosing on strychnine-laced heroin.

The band continued tours throughout the UK and US with moderate success of songs hitting the charts, top 40's to top 10's until 1980, with a few reunion reappearances in 1989.
