|Love – one of the best West Coast folk-rock/psychedelic bands of 60s – was formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, California, USA by genius singer and songwriter Arthur Lee. The other band members were: Bryan MacLean – guitar, vocals; John Echols – guitar; Ken Forssi – bass; Alban Pfisterer – drums. In late 1966, Pfisterer switched to keyboards, replaced by Michael Stuart; Tjay Cantrelli added on flute and sax. Cantrelli and Pfisterer quit, 1967. The “new” late Sixties/ early Seventies Love, radically different from the ‘first incarnation’ and concentrating more on a hard rock/eclectic edge, was: Arthur Lee, Jay Donnellan (guitar), Frank Fayad (bass), George Suranovich (drums). Gary Rowles replaced Donnellan in late 1969.
Love disbanded in 1974.
