The group gives some 200 concert a year and their music keeps getting more and more fans from younger audience wherever they go. The original sound of two guitars, played by Andy Powell and Ted Turner was the inspiration to follow by other famous rock group like Iron Maiden or Thin Lizzy.
In 1972 the duo Powell-Turner was named by "Melody Maker" as the most inspiring guitar players since The Yardbirds with Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.
