Gary Farr was best known for his work with the T-Bones, beginning in the early '60s and extending well into the '80s. He was born to British heavyweight boxing champion Tommy Farr, and grew up with a love of folk and blues music. He began to play in pubs and clubs around Sussex, until he finally put the T-Bones together. The lineup changed continually, including a short stint from keyboardist Keith Emerson, and even scored the spot as the resident band at London's Crawdaddy Club after the Yardbirds left it. The band was a live sensation, but in its long existence it never quite broke out of the underground and eventually disbanded in the late '80s.
