Briar were formed in 1979, by schoolfriends Kevin Griffiths (Vox/Guitar), Dean Cook (Drums), Dean Rogers (Guitar) & David Tattum (Bass), initially as a bit of fun to impress their mates, it is said the guy's played many gigs for friends in drummer Dean's frontroom......actually miming to Black Sabbath records, the mates were apparently impressed until one day.....the vinyl record they were miming to started to jump and kinda blew the guy's charade out of the water !!
The band had used names such as Lucifer, Ark & Emerald in the early days....eventually settling with Briar when the they got pissed off changing names all the time !, the band started proper when Dean & Kevin went to see a band at the Solihull YMCA the band were called Streetcruiser and were fronted by a cool dude vocalist, as soon as the chaps saw this event they were hooked...........drummer Dean later said,
Thanks to colt for the addition
