Steve Upton

Musical Artist

Steven 'Steve' Upton (born 24 May 1946, Wrexham, Wales, although he grew up in Exeter, Devon, England) is the former drummer for the British rock band Wishbone Ash. He was with the band for two decades (1969–1990). His tight, precise drumming would be a key element of the band's sound, and Upton was one of the first drummers to sport the open-handed drumming. Upton, at some stages of the band's career, took care of the day-to-day running of the band, earning himself the title 'The Colonel'. By the late 1980s Upton effectively had assumed the role of band manager. In 1990, Upton departed from the band owing to personal problems and a desire for a quiet life. He went on to manage Miles Copeland III's chateau in the south of France, but no longer has any active involvement with the music industry.  ( Wikipedia article )
