Formed way back in 1969, English band Uriah Heep has been together for 49 years. That is a long time. Though the line-up has been the same since 2013, the only original member remaining is guitarist Mick Box.
The band has been really busy over their almost five decades together releasing 25 studio albums and 18 live albums. 18 live albums means that they have played a ton of live shows. Not only have they released plenty of music, but it has been of the commercially successful variety with 15 of them making the Billboard 200 chart. The bands most recognizable songs include “Sweet Lorraine”, “The Wizard”, “Stealin'”, and “Easy Livin'”.
Not lightweights, during the 70s, they were considered one of the most successful rock bands along with Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath. The table turned during the next decade as their success dried up so much that they were considered a cult favourite. Still they keep going on propelled by their devoted fans and over 40 million albums sold worldwide.
