... a British rock drummer who toured Africa


Alan's Track Record:

Alan Turner returned to England at the end of the tour with Bill Kimber and joined a band called the "Bo-Street Runners" (Alan replaced Mick Fleetwood). The band disbanded and he gigged around with various bands, including the famous Johnny Hallyday. Turner subsequently joined Gary Farr and the T-Bones. They were a good band and the star of the band was no other than Keith Emerson. Emerson left the T-Bones and founded "the Nice". Alan briefly played with them before he got married. The band "Yes" asked him to join them, but he declined because of marriage commitments. South African musician, Trevor Rabin, joined "Yes" during the seventies.
