Uriah Heep is a British rock band, officially formed in 1969 in London, England, when record producer Gerry Bron invited keyboardist Ken Hensley (previously a member of The Gods and Toe Fat) to join Spice, members of whom included soon-to-become Heep stalwarts David Byron (vocals) and Mick Box (guitar). The band rapidly grew to become a seminal classic hard rock act of the 1970s and beyond. Their distinctive progressive/art rock/heavy metal fusion has always featured a massive keyboards sound, strong vocal harmonies and (in the early years) David Byron's operatic vocals.

And I chanced to meet him one night wandering
He told me tales and he drank my wine
Me and my magic man, kind of feeling fine
He had a cloak of gold and eyes of fire
- LyricsI was only seventeen
I fell in love with a gypsy queen
She told me, "Hold on"
Her father was the leading man
Said, "You're not welcome on our land"
