The current band consists of Francis Rossi (lead & rhythm
guitars, vocals), Rick Parfitt (rhythm guitar, vocals), Andrew
Bown (keyboards, guitar), John 'Rhino' Edwards (bass and
guitar) and Jeff Rich (drums). Francis and Rick are both
founder members of the band, Andrew joined in 1976 after
having been a session and live musician for a number of years,
and Rhino and Jeff joined in 1986 after having worked on
Rick's solo album.
The band plays a sort of 'rock blues' style of music, which
has influenced a lot of other bands, though they tend not to
acknowledge the influence.
