Atomic Rooster is a British rockband, originally founded by members of The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, organist Vincent Crane and drummer Carl Palmer, who later participated in Emerson Lake & Palmer.
During their history keyboardist Vincent Crane was the only steady member and he wrote the majority of their material. Their history is defined by two periods: halfway the ’70s and the early ’80s. The band went through some radical stylechanges, but they became most famous through their hard, progressive rocksound. “Tomorrow Night” en “Devil’s Answer” were their greatest hits.
In 2016 a new line-up from Atomic Rooster played together with permission of Crane’s widow. The first show was a warmingup in Clitheroe, Lancashire on July 14th 2016. The line-up was Pete French and Steve Bolton, plus keyboardist Christian Madden, bass player Shug Millidge and drummer Bo Walsh. In 2017 Madden was replaced by Adrian Gautrey.
