This Legend were from the burgeoning NWoBHM scene in Kent, and formed in 1979.
LEGEND's first line-up comprised of vocalist Chris Thow, former STREAMLINER and JAGUAR guitarist Mark Dawson, ex TORPEDO bassist Jose Rodriguez and ex BLOODSHOT & DERVISH drummer Alan Tracey. Following the 1981 ‘Hideaway’ single release, Rodriguez lost his place to erstwhile DERVISH bassist Gavin Matthews. LEGEND split in 1982.
Dawson, Matthews and Tracey are now all in a covers band called TASTE STATION ZERO.
Not to be confused with the Jersey band, who are currently re-issuing their back catalogue which includes "Death in the Nursery", or the US band who released the album "From The Fjords".
