Who was/is Colosseum ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more

The jazz rock group, founded in England in 1968, was particularly popular and popular in Germany. The founders were drummer Jon Hiseman (born 21. 6.1944 in London) and saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith (born 26.9.1934 in Ludlow). Jim Roche, James Litherland or Dave Clempson played in the group through frequent changes of members.

Roche joined East of Eden, Clempson went to Humble Pie. With bassist Mark Clarke (born July 25, 1950 in Liverpool), organist Dave Greenslade (born June 18, 1943) and singer Chris Farlowe (born October 13, 1940 in Essex), Colosseum reached the peak of their career in 1970, playing themselves to the top of all instrumental groups. In 1971 the musicians split up. Farlowe joined Atomic Rooster for a short time, Hiseman founded Tempest, Greenslade and Heckstall-Smith formed their own bands.

In the summer of 1975 Jon Hiseman made a new attempt with Colosseum II to build on the old successes. Original Press Release: Ariola Eurodisc GmbH
