LET the good times roll --- Dr. Hook featuring Ray Sawyer are on the loose again ! Millions of fans around the world will remember Ray Sawyer as the highly animated eye patched lead singer of the group. His Raspy, soulful and sometimes comic vocals fronted the bands breakthrough to the "Cover of the Rolling Stone" and international superstar status from the late 60s to the early 80s. Now hes back with a new twist to his familiar sound.

Born and raised in Mobile Alabama, Ray Sawyer got his first job as a professional musician at 14, playing drums with a local band. His own style was indelibly marked by the amalgam of black and white Southern music that kept Alabama dance halls hopping. "When you play Mobile, you play either country or Rhythm and Blues, though down there they are just about the same thing," Sawyer explains.

He got his trademark eye patch following a 1967 automobile accident that left him without his right eye and kept him in a wheel chair for a year. When he was back on his feet, Sawyer hit out for Los Angeles, working his way back east where the core of Dr Hook was formed in time to record Shel Silversteins score to the Dustin Hoffman film "Who is Harry Kellerman and Why is he saying these terrible things about me?"

With forty gold records accumulated world-wide with the band. Sawyer now returns with his sights set on bagging a few himself. With his considerable stage energy, his impish sense of humour and that unmistakable voice and image in the eye of the international public. Dr Hook featuring Ray Sawyer are back on the music scene as a potent force for good times and good music.
