Guitarist Alan Ross played on 2 of John Entwistleâ€™s solo albums in the early 70â€™s, â€œWhistle Rhymesâ€ and â€œRigor Mortis Sets Inâ€. He was also part of Entwistleâ€™s touring band during that period. In 1973, he played guitar on Tim Hardinâ€™s album â€œPainted Headâ€. That same year, he formed a band called Ro-Ro with bass player Warwick Rose and they released an album called â€œMeet At The Waterâ€ on the Regal Zonophone label. The album is now extremely hard to find and goes on ebay for anything between GBP 200 and GBP 300. By 1974, he formed the group â€œRossâ€ with former Indian Summer keyboard player Bob Jackson. The bandâ€™s career seemed to take off when they landed themselves a contract with RSO Records. They recorded 2 brilliant albums for the label, â€œRossâ€ and â€œThe Pit And The Pendulumâ€, released in 1974 and 1975. Eric Clapton, who was also an RSO artist toured the USA in 1974 and the Ross band was on the same bill. The band disbanded after two albums. In 1976, he appeared on the band Starsâ€™ self titled album. He released another 2 albums in 1977 and 1978, â€œAre You Free On Saturdayâ€ and â€œRestless Nightsâ€, this time for a small British label, Ebony Records under the name Alan Ross Band. In 1980, he appeared on an album by Wilson-Gale called â€œGift Wrapped Setâ€. In 1983, he played on Alexis Kornerâ€™s album â€œJuvenile Delinquentâ€.
