Simon Frith, Let It Rock, May 1973
ROCK WRITERS have a thing about genealogy. I dont know whos fault it is but Im always reading about second generation bands and third generation singer-songwriters. I dont think rocks history is neat enough for this sort of pedigree tracing and Ive never liked the analogy, but talking to Wishbone Ashs guitarists — Andy Powell and Ted Turner — I kept thinking about it. I mean, they arent just slight and fragile like other rock stars, theyre young. As they recounted their career they were always three or four years behind me.
