Nazareth

The Scottish hard rock quartet Nazareth had a handful of hard rock hits in the late '70s, including the proto-power ballad "Love Hurts." Formed in 1968, the band featured vocalist Dan McCafferty, guitarist Manny Charlton, bassist Pete Agnew, and drummer Darrell Sweet. The band had relocated to London by 1970, and they released their self-titled debut album in 1971. Both Nazareth and 1972's Exercises received favorable attention by British hard rockers, but it was 1973's Razamanaz that moved them into the U.K. Top Ten (both "Broken Down Angel" and "Bad Bad Boy" were hit singles). Loud 'n' Proud and Rampant (both 1974) followed the same formula, yet were slightly less successful.

Released the following year, Hair of the Dog established Nazareth as an internationally popular hard rock band. Featuring their revamped version of the Everly Brothers' "Love Hurts," the album sold over a million copies in the U.S. Until the end of the '70s, the band continued successfully as a quartet, releasing a series of Top 100 albums. In 1979, they added former Sensational Alex Harvey Band guitarist Zal Cleminson to their lineup; he left after recording two albums -- 1979's No Mean City and 1980's Malice in Wonderland -- and was replaced by former Spirit keyboardist John Locke. Following the 1981 live album 'Snaz, guitarist Bill Rankin also joined the group; Locke left soon after his addition and Rankin switched to keyboards.

By this time, their commercial appeal had dwindled in both the U.K. and the U.S. By the mid-'80s, Nazareth was left without a record contract, so the band went on hiatus for a few years. They returned in 1992 with No Jive, which failed to gain an audience in America and Europe. In 1999, Nazareth resurfaced yet again with Boogaloo. While touring the album, original drummer Darrell Sweet passed away at the age of 51 from a heart attack; bassist Agnew's son Lee took over drum duties. After a ten-year break, the band returned with their 21st studio album, 2008's The Newz, which was released to coincide with the band's 40th anniversary. 2011 saw the release of Big Dogz, and the group followed this up with their 23rd studio album, Rock 'n' Roll Telephone, which was slated for release in 2014. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

This song is the reason I picked up a guitar some 40 years ago and haven't put it back down. Some crud broke into my cousins house in 74 and stole all kinda crap, she (my cousin) was more upset about them stealing her Razamanaz album then she was about anything else. :) This song is just pure hardcore in your face Rock and Roll. 1000 Stars outta 10.
The best classic rockers from Scotland.... great tune!
Want to know why Pandora is finally updating their Metal genres after 6 years?
Hair of the dog and this one rock
I also saw them when Mccafferty was on crutches, he rocked anyway, if ou haven't played Boogaloo, check it out!! when the light comes down sounds like dan doesn't know how NOT TO ROCK!!
Had to shove in a matchbook to shim up my 8-track to make this one play...

Dont read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you dont post this you will die in 2 days. Now youve started reading so dont stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it works.

Nazareth garcia you also have a cool last name sure miss jerry!

Love me some Nazareth!

milosdad
I remember the tour where McAfferty had to sit on a chair and sing. Saw them headline that tour. Best was 1976 when they opened for Deep Purple. Great show. I still love the Hair of the Dog album. Really great music on there and it always takes me back to the days of my youth. These guys will always be one of my favorites.
They were awesome live back in their prime
singring
One of my all time favorite bands. Saw them open for Aerosmith in the day. MacAfferty had had a car wreck - or something - had to sing from a chair the whole show - Still Kicked Aerosmith's a**!
whole album rocks
I want to see and listen to 2 X S
Razamanaz is one of the most bad a** rock songs of all time!
didnt even mention the influences they had on singers like johnson of ac/dc and especially axl rose---who idolized the band
hair of the dog was 1 of the 6 albums I got for 1 penny backin the days of the columbia record club. Old schoolers you know what I mean. played it so much I had to tape a penny to the needle. LOL. Good Old school ROCKIN!!!
LOVE THIS BAND JAMMED ALL THE WAY TO LA LISTENING TO THEM WITH SOME FRIENDS.WITH A LIGHTED MIDDLE FINGER ON MY BUDDY'S CAR.WAS 17 AT THE TIME.
agree with phil_bib22, this biography is far from the fact.
rvelocity62
Hair of the Dog was my first hard rock album in '75 and it still holds up. Timeless
this biography is bullshit. way to reduce a powerful and influential blues metal band into an insignifican t footnote. forget that they were one of the main stylistic influences on g'n'r, to my mind they were real down to earth heavy southern blues rock-even if they were from scotland. i don't care if i inspire outrage, but i think they represent that genre a hell of alot better than those pretentious f**king prancing pansies aerosmith.
wwtp18
they have over 30 albums I have them all but evidently Pandora only knows of Hair of the Dog
bedan1003
I am the biggest naz fan ever, second to none. They friggin rock. period
you have to listen to "boogaloo" absolutly nasty!! the way nazareth should be, "god saved the south" Light comes down and open up woman, vocals are better than ever. long time fan
milosdad1
Saw them several times. Sometimes McGaff was so drunk he had to sit on chair to perform. Best was February 1976 with Tommy Bolin's Deep Purple.
dtk2011
what about razamanazz and exspect no mercy some of the best nazz. tunes of all are on those cds blues and rock both
the most underated band of all time saw them several times---mcga f f e r t y has one of the great rock voices ever best concert i ever saw( and i saw virtually every big band of the classic rock eraq

and why would he replace bon scott he was with a better band
The live album "snaz" is awsome
I personally loved both No Mean City and 2XS especially May the Sun Shine Bright and You Love Another and Back to The Trenches. I was in 6th grade when Hair of the Dog came out. Alot of memories associated with those songs including the first time I got stoned.
flowers_r
Saw them three times in the late 70's and early 80's. Would have been more if I hadn't been in Japan in the early 70's. Great live band. Exercises and Close Enough for Rock'N'Roll never got the credit they deserved. Great albums.
