Wo are Be-Bop Deluxe?

Be-Bop Deluxe were an English progressive rock band founded in West Yorkshire, England, by singer, guitarist and principal songwriter Bill Nelson. The band's stylistic approach was described as a mix of glam rock, prog rock and traditional rock and roll. The band achieved their peak of success during the 1972 to 1978 era of their career, during which they released 5 studio albums and 3 live albums. The size of the group condensed from 5 original members to 4 before dismantling the group in 1974 to form a new line up later in the same year to create Futurama.
