Unchallenged leader and chief guitar slinger of eternal U.K. blues group Chicken Shack. Stan Webb's recordings with himself in the driver's seat have always been issued under the name Chicken Shack or Stan Webb's Chicken Shack. Recent recordings have sometimes been done hastily with a touring band - at least that is the impression I have got.
But the year of 2001 saw the issue of "Webb" under the name Stan Webb - an extremely well recorded, well sounding, well written album on the U.K. INDIGO label (IGOXCD 538).
The elegant camera shots (© Dave Peabody) of Mr. Webb depict a suave gentleman of Claptonesque cool - not ye' olde tousledhaired pubcrawler.
