Powered by Audioscrobbler™Stone the Crows was a blues and soul influenced rock band from Glasgow.

The band was formed in 1970 after Maggie Bell was introduced to Les Harvey by his older brother, Alex Harvey. After playing together in the Kinning Park Ramblers, they rejoined in a band Power, later renamed Stone the Crows, after Led Zeppelin's manager, Peter Grant, heard them and took them on.

Original line-up:

* Maggie Bell, vocals (born Margaret Bell, 12 January 1945, in Glasgow, Strathclyde, Scotland.
* Les Harvey, guitar (born Leslie Harvey, in 1945, in the Gorbals, Glasgow, Strathclyde, Scotland died 2 May 1972).
* Colin Allen, drums
* Jim Dewar, bass (born James Dewer, 12 October 1942, in Glasgow, Strathclyde, Scotland).
* John McGinnis, keyboards

The band's first two albums were produced by the above line-up, with Bell's vocals "reminiscent of Janis Joplin"

Second line-up:

McGinnis and Dewar left 1971, to be replaced by Ronnie Leahy and Steve Thompson. The tragic death of Les Harvey (electrocuted by a live microphone on stage at Swansea's Top Rank Suite in May 1972) almost led to the breakup of the band. After trying Peter Green, the band brought in ex-Thunderclap Newman prodigy Jimmy McCulloch as lead guitarist.

Stone the Crows broke up in June 1973. Maggie Bell recorded two albums in the early seventies, Queen of the Night and Suicide Sal and joined Rod Stewart on Every Picture Tells A Story as well as forming the band Midnight Flyer.
