After five years of serious dues-paying on the competitive U.K. music scene, Scottish rockers Nazareth were still looking for their big break when they unleashed their third album, ‘Razamanaz,’ in May of 1973. They finally found it.
At 45 years and counting -- and a fair bit of the original lineup still intact -- Nazareth is one of the longest-tenured rock bands currently working. And despite rumors to the contrary, they don't seem to have any plans to hang it up anytime soon.
Nazareth vocalist Dan McCafferty reveals that it wasn't a lack of new material that kept the band from making new albums in recent years, but instead, age discrimination from the record labels that had previously been prime targets to put out new music from the group.
