Drummer Ken Pustelnik joined in 1965, and the by the end of the 60s, the trio of Pete Cruickshank, McPhee and Pustelnik were one of England's hottest blues bands. A string of albums entered the UK charts in the early 70s, before Egg drummer Clive Brooks replaced Pustelnik in 1972. McPhee still operates the band to this day!
