Whatever Happened To… Nazareth?

Hair of the Dog – Nazareth (1975)
This Scottish band reached their commercial peak with this album, but have continued to regularly release new records over the years. Their fan-base in northern Europe is especially strong. Two founding members, front-man Dan McCafferty and bassist Pete Agnew, continue with the band today. Lead guitarist Manny Charlton left in 1990 to form another band, followed by a solo career. Drummer Darrell Sweet died of a heart attack while touring in 1999; he was replaced by Agnew’s son, Lee. Nazareth celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2008 and released their most recent studio album last year. They can be seen touring throughout Canada this summer.
