Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chelsea are an English punk rock band, formed in London in 1976. Three of the four original band members went on to help found Generation X. More than two decades after its release, "Right to Work," Chelsea's debut single, was included in Mojo magazine's list of the best punk rock singles of all time. The original line-up was frontman Gene October, William Broad (later and better known as Billy Idol) (guitar), Tony James (bass) and John Towe (drums, who had come from London SS along with James). After a few gigs, the other three left October to form Generation X. October then recruited Carey Fortune (drums), Martin Stacy (guitar) and Bob Jessie (bass), with the last two soon replaced by Henry Daze (Henry Badowski) and James Stevenson (who also later joined Generation X). This rapid turnover of band members (Simon Cade Williams, aka Simon Vitesse, joined the band as bassist in 1977 for UK tour and the single: "High Rise Living") was characteristic throughout Chelsea's existence, with October the only constant presence.show more
