Black Cat Bones was a British heavy blues rock group from London. The band formed in 1966 with original members Paul Tiller(vocals and harmonica), lead guitarist Paul Kossoff, brothers Derek Brooks (rhythm guitar) and Stu Brooks (bass), anddrummer Terry Sims. The band is notable for having had Kossoff and Simon Kirke in its lineup. Kossoff and Kirke would soonjoin the highly succesful Free in 1968. Kirke also became a founding member of Bad Company in 1974.

Black Cat Bones played deep blues which was undoubtedly the popular thing in England at the time. One can hear the earlyseeds of Free in Paul Kossoff’s riffing and melodic lead playing(it was, after all, half of that band). The later lineup feauturessome amazing slide playing by Rod Price and Derek Brooks.

The band quickly moved through a lot of line-up changes: Simon Kirke replaced drummer Frank Perry. Paul Kossoff and Kirkejoined Free and were replaced by guitarist Rod Price and drummer Phil Lenoir. With singer Brian Short, Stu and DerekBrooks,their only full-length album in 1969, “Barbed Wire Sandwich”, would be released. When it stalled, members Short,Price, and Lenoir left the band, effectively ending its existence. Derek and Stu Brooks were joined by vocalist Pete Frenchand guitarist Mick Halls from the Brunning Sunflower Blues Band; after adding drummer Keith George Young, the band becameanother sort of obscure hard rock band called Leaf Hound in 1970. Rod Price later went on to play in Foghat through the 70s-80s.
