are a blues-rock band formed in 1969. After the demise of garage band The Misunderstood, vocalist Ray Owen, steel guitarist Glenn Ross Campbell and saxophone player Chris Mercer formed Juicy Lucy. The group later recruited guitarist Neil Hubbard, bassist Keith Ellis, and drummer Pete Dobson.[1]
The band immediately notched a UK Top 20 hit with their cover version of the Bo Diddley perennial "Who Do You Love?".[2]
Their self-titled debut album then fell just shy of the Top 40 in the UK Albums Chart.[1] The album's cover featured a burlesque dancer named Zelda Plum, naked except for a covering of fruit.
Line-up changes were quickly afoot as ex-Zoot Money singer Paul Williams, guitarist Micky Moody and drummer Rod Coombes; replaced Owen (who exited for a solo career), Hubbard and Dobson; for 1970's Lie Back and Enjoy It (#53 - UK Albums Chart[2]), with another bassist Jim Leverton assuming Ellis' duties for the follow-up, 1971's Get a Whiff a This.[1]
The constant turnover clearly took its toll on the group both creatively and commercially, with co-founders Campbell and Mercer both exiting prior to the fourth Juicy Lucy album, 1972's Pieces. This was recorded by a makeshift line-up of Williams, Moody, keyboardist Jean Roussel and the former Blodwyn Pig rhythm section of bassist Andy Pyle and drummer Ron Berg. Juicy Lucy disbanded shortly thereafter.
Micky Moody (born 30 August 1950, in Middlesbrough), later joined the inaugural Whitesnake line-up in 1978. Before then he was a member of another rock outfit Snafu between 1973 and 1976. Moody also released the bluesy solo album I Eat Them For Breakfast in 2001. Plus, Juicy Lucy's version of the song "Who Do You Love?" was featured in Shellshock: Nam '67.
Founder member Ray Owen revived the name in 1995 for the albums Blue Thunder and Here She Comes Again which found Mike Jarvis (guitar), Andy Doughty (bass), and Spencer Blackledge (drums) rounding out the band.[1] A couple of years later this version of the band broke up but Owen wanted to keep on going, especially when he formed a musical partnership with a guitarist known as Mr. Fish. Legal problems kept the new band from using the Juicy Lucy name, so they gigged as Ray Owen's Moon (Moon being the title of Ray Owen's 1971 solo album).[1]
By 2004 bassist Fudge and drummer Fletch had joined the band and the legal issue was settled. The new Juicy Lucy spent 2006 working on a new album (subsequently titled Do That And You'll Lose It), and touring the UK with fellow rock veterans Nazareth.[1]
They played the Cambridge Rock Festival (2007) and are managing to build a formidable live reputation. The link with the past though is not forgotten, and the modern day Juicy Lucy still plays "Mississippi Woman", "Who Do You Love?" and more from their first album.

  1. The veins on the wrapper are fine, and the prelight scent emanating from the cigar is caramel. The juicy couture outlet online is a little tricky to light, owing to its short size; this is pretty much unavoidable. Once you get it lit though, it burns nicely, and the ash stacks on to a good inch before dropping off. The draw is perfect throughout the thirty minute smoke.
