Progrography

Ken Hensley
Keyboardist/guitarist Ken Hensley is best-remembered as the driving creative force behind Uriah Heep. Particularly when he played the organ, Hensley elevated Heep's music to impressive heights (similar to the effect Wooly Wolstenholme had in Barclay James Harvest). But Hensley was already a veteran of two bands when Heep began: The Gods and its progeny, Toe Fat. (Both bands also featured future Heep drummer Lee Kerslake.) Heep's most prolific songwriter, Hensley released his first solo album in 1973, Proud Woman on a Dusty Shelf. A second, Eager To Please, followed in 1975. In what should have marked the end of Uriah Heep, Hensley left the band at the close of the '70s, releasing a third album, Free Spirit. Yet it was Hensley who soon faded from view. In recent years, he has toured with former Heepmate John Wetton, releasing two live albums with the bassist/vocalist.
