Geek FM: Uriah Heep

Before getting into this week’s entry, I would be remiss if I did not at least give a tip of the hat to the Purple One, who we recently lost. I was never a huge fan of Prince, though what I heard of his music I generally liked. But I respect his influence and contributions to contemporary music and style. He will be missed.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, when I really got into tabletop roleplaying games, I had a bit of a soundtrack that got me in the mood to create adventures. Part of that soundtrack was this band, England’s Uriah Heep. With David Byron’s soaring vocals and Mick Box’s singular guitar work, and their right out of the dungeon lyrics, Heep just spoke to me in my late adolescence and early 20s. They still speak to me, to be honest. Here are a few of my favorite cuts of this unique, very ‘eavy, very ‘umble, band.

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.
