The Family Dogg

The Family Dogg was a British vocal group best known for their harmony vocals.

Career

The idea was born when the British singers of the Spanish groups, Los Flaps and Diamond Boys, Albert Hammond and Steve Rowland met for the first time at a concert in Madrid in 1965. In 1966 The Family Dogg was formed in England with the participation of the singers Mike Hazelwood and Christine Holmes. The debut album "A Way of Life" was released in 1969, and the title track scored a number 6 hit in the UK Singles Chart. Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin were guest musicians on that album.

In 1970 the group was renamed as "Steve Rowland and The Family Dogg". In April 1970 they got a Number 2 hit in the Netherlands with the song "Sympathy" previously recorded by the group Rare Bird in 1969. In 1972 Steve Rowland released a last Family Dogg album, "View from Rowland's Head", with guest musicians like Chris Spedding on the guitar, and Ireen Sheer as singer.
