Autobiography by Wishbone Ash's Andy Powell “Eyes Wide Open: True Tales Of A Wishbone Ash Warrior” Released

(PRESS RELEASE): In 1969, Andy Powell was one of four founding members of progressive rock pioneers Wishbone Ash. Forty-six years later, with no sabbaticals, he is still a member of Wishbone Ash. And he’s seen a lot of interesting things along the way.

Watching the birth of rock 'n' roll in the 50's; stepping into the swinging 60's mod scene as a teenager; touring the States with The Who; selling hundreds of thousands of copies of Argus; being managed by industry legend Miles Copeland; outliving punk and moving to America; battling former bandmates over the right to use the name Wishbone Ash, and fighting to keep that name alive through changing tastes and styles—Andy Powell has been there, done it, and seen it all. And he’s still doing it today.

“It’s a great pleasure to be able to say that the man behind the Flying V can write a bit, too.” —Ian Rankin

Andy Powell's “Eyes Wide Open: True Tales Of A Wishbone Ash Warrior” was written by Andy Powell with Colin Harper.
