Forcefield three: To Oz and back
Formed in 1987, Forcefield’s ever-changing line-up brought together the mainstays of some of the biggest 80s rock bands.

The original members were Pete Prescott, Ray Fenwick and Cozy Powell. Amongst guitarist Fenwick’s credits were The Spencer Davis Group, Fancy and The Ian Gillan Band, while drummer Powell had been a key figure in bands of the calibre of Black Sabbath, Rainbow and Whitesnake and is widely regarded as an all-time rock great.

Prescott completed the line-up fresh from a stint as lead vocalist of Sergent. The debut album Forcefield consisted of reworked rock standards such as Deep Purple’s Smoke On The Water, The Kinks’ Set Me Free and Cream’s Sunshine of Your Love mixed with a selection of original material and attracted a cult following.

Jan Akkerman joined the band from the Forcefield II-release.
