Tygers of Pan Tang


Robb Weir is never a man to take what he has for granted. Having led the Tygers since their first album through a plethora of line-up changes he recognises that the current Tygers are probably the strongest since they were at the forefront of the NWOBHM. The original band, who made 4 albums for MCA records, survived the unexpected departure of Jess Cox to run Neat records and later John Sykes, who was bound for Thin Lizzy and a multi-million seller with Whitesnake. What they didn't survive was their greatest commercial success with the album 'The Cage'. However, Weir, ever the optimist, formed a new version of the band to both play the old material and write songs that would represent this 'new' Tygers. The backbone of the band - Craig Ellis on drums, together with Jack Meille on vocals have now been together for considerably longer than the first Tygers and were joined by Francesco Marras on guitar and Huw Holding on bass for their 2023 album 'Bloodlines' an album that is turning up on many 'Best Album of 2023' lists.
