AUDIO: The Equals' Eddy Grant (2002)

Bill Brewster, Rock's Backpages Audio, 15 October 2002

The Equals' guitarist/writer/producer remembers his first impressions of London on arrival from Guyana in 1960; the epiphany of seeing Chuck Berry live in '64; forming the Equals at school; the London black music scene; getting signed and having hits; his heart attack and the end of the band, and getting his studio.
