CREATION: LA STORIA DEL ROCK

Ex dal gruppo Mark 4 tra cui John Dalton che passerà ai Kinks, viene sostituito da Bob Garner. Il gruppo molto considerato dalla critica come una band di interesse notevole nel mondo musicale beat, Molto appariscenti le loro performance dal vivo con scenografie rivoluzionarie fatta di disegni di carta e spray bruciati durante lo show. Il primo che un chitarrista suona con l’archetto è Eddie Philips, copiato poi da Jimmi Page dei Led Zeppelin. Intanto il gruppo si afferma anche oltre il Regno Unito, e precisamente in Germania, infatto esono i primi album qui che al loro paese, dove solo nel 1973 incidono The Creation in antologia degli anni ’66 e ’67. Nel 1968 Pkilips e Garner lasciano la band, in un primo momento prende il posto Ron Wood, poi la band si scioglie definitivamente. Garner suonerà con i Ashton Garner & Dyke, mentre Ron Wood andrà con Jeff Beck, poi con i Faces e infine con i Rolling Stones. Nel 1993, spinti da un fans di eccezione Paul Weller, Pickett e Garner rimettono su la band. Pultroppo Pickett muore d’infarto nel 1977 e Garner di cancro quattro anni dopo.
