..Budgie..

Post  Reo on Sun Mar 31, 2013 12:09 am

Budgie is a Welsh hard rock heavy metal band from Cardiff, that formed in 1967 under the name Hills Contemporary Grass.
After performing several gigs in 1968, the band changed their name to Budgie the following year.
Burke Shelley has said that the band's name came from the fact that he loved the idea of playing noisy, heavy rock, but calling themselves after something diametrically opposed to that. His vocal ability have been compared to RUSH singer Geddy Lee, due to his similar approach of high-pitched banshee wails. Incidentally, Shelley and Lee are also the bass players in their respective bands.
