In 1968 Chicken Shack were a major signing to MIKE VERNON'S now legendary BLUE HORIZON label. Led by the mercurial Stan Webb on guitar and vocals, Chicken Shack were a band brimming full of talent, far outweighing the bands, groups and solo performers purveying the BLUES - a musical tradition in many forms, taken from the 'Folk Roots Of Black America'. Probably the bands most well known member was CHRISTINE PERFECT (later McVie) who went on at a later date to even greater fame and fortune with FLEETWOOD MAC.
The late sixties were a prolific time for Chicken Shack with their first two albums "40 Blue Fingers Freshly Packed And Ready To Go" and "O.K. Ken" storming into the U.K. top twenty, whilst the singles "When The Train Comes Back" and "Tears In The Wind" also scored heavily in the charts.
Stan's blistering guitar style matched with a huge stage presence have made Chicken Shack a firm favourite of rock and blues fans everywhere.
Since those heady days of the late sixties a further fifteen albums have been released together with numerous compilations proving that Stan, really is "The Man".
Throughout a distinguished career Stan Webb has played and recorded with the very best, including, STEVIE WONDER, HOWLING WOLF, TAJ MAHAL, PETER GREEN and CANNED HEAT, whom he joined on guitar for a U.K. tour following the departure of the bands guitarist.
As the '60's have given way to the '70's; '80's and '90's, Stan Webb and Chicken Shack show no sign of slowing down, continually touring the U.K. and Europe to great houses and rave reviews. In 1997 Stan received the BLUE HEART AWARD for services to Blues in Germany, the previous recipient had been BB KING, a glowing testament to Stan Webb and his ongoing love of playing the blues.
Since that time Stan Webb has continued to release quality CD's (Webb and Still Live after All These Years to name but two) and a great DVD recorded livein the UK. His back catalogue continues to pop up in the record store racks as interest in Stan Webb and his product show no sign of abating.
As we move toward 2016 Stan The Man has completely revamped his band with fresh personnel coming in to give the music a whole new dimension. Stan is currently writing material for a new CD as he celebrates his 50th year in showbusiness!.
