When Gary Glitter's first single "Rock and Roll Parts 1 and 2" became a number 2 hit in the UK, his manager Mike Leander realised that he would need a backing band, and contacted John Rossall, who was then the musical director of the Boston Showband. With a few changes in personnel, the Boston Showband became the Glittermen, and later 'The Glitter Band' in 1973 who were: John Rossall (Sax, Trombone & Musical Director), Gerry Shephard (lead guitar and vocals), Pete Gill (Drums), Tony Leonard (Drums), Pete Phipps (Drums and Keyboards), John Springate (Bass & Vocals) and Harvey Ellison (sax). They backed Glitter in live performances, although in the studio Leander played all the instruments himself apart from the brass section provided by Rossall and Ellison ...
