Saracen evolved from a band called ’Lammergeier’ which was put together by Rob Bendelow and Richard Lowe in the late 70s. But with the change of band members, finally Steve Bettney (vocals), Rob Bendelow (guitar), Richard Lowe (keyboards), Barry Yates (bass) and John Thorne (drums) the band Saracen was formed. Rob left the band after the Heroes, Saints and Fools album and with a change of line up and the ‘Change of Heart’ album release the band folded in 1985. It wasn’t until Rob was approach in 2003 to get the band back together and release the new album ‘Red Sky’ that Saracen started playing again. Although the band has had additional line up changes over the years, with Steve at the helm and Simon Roberts (guitar), Paul Highfield (bass), Tris Alsbury (drums) and Paul Bradder (keyboards) the band will carry on playing while ever fans want to hear our music.
