I agree, Figge. Bit one of their albums is/was all killer no filler.....and I also agree that the band were probably on the wane, which is why I said about Ricky and his ego.

But the change of dynamic really started the rot. The tight knit band suddenly had a new member, already famous in his own right, and I can't help thinking that, on the personal relationship level, it can only have been a negative influence.

It's all guesswork, really. Hensley has a reputation for being 'difficult' and Ricky is very much his own man. It must have been very 'interesting', to say the least.

It reminds me, a little, of Robertson joining Motörhead. Musically it might have made sense but on the personality level, it was disastrous. Same as Gillan joining Sabbath. Some work, some should never have been attempted. I'd put Ken joining Blackfoot into the latter category.
