Rock n Roll’s long heritage is drenched with countless classic artists.

As the years roll by, members come and go.

But the songs always remain.

So many artists, so many songs!

The Ex-Men feature four British musicians with their own remarkable heritage – playing alongside legends and icons of music – so there’s no shortage of classic and iconic songs for them to play!

Vocalist/bassist/guitarist Peter Barton

spent over two decades as the voice of Animals & Friends, alongside The Animals’ co-founder, John Steel and the man who replaced Alan Price on keyboards – Micky Gallagher, later (and still) one of Ian Dury’s Blockheads. Along the way, Peter has toured alongside Stax and Blues Brothers legend, Steve Cropper; the late great Mick Green (The Pirates, Paul McCartney, Bryan Ferry, Van Morrison) and Spencer Davis.

Further live credits include performing with Jerry Donahue, (Joan Armatrading, Sandy Denny); Dave Rowberry (The Animals), Jim Rodford (The Kinks and Argent), Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix); Chris Farlowe, Alan Silson and Pete Spencer (Smokie), Maggie Bell, Zoot Money, Garry Roberts and Simon Crowe (The Boomtown Rats), Trevor Burton (The Move), Wayne Fontana (The Mindbenders), The Swinging Blue Jeans plus many more.

Over the last four decades Peter has also recorded over a dozen albums, alongside Rick Wakeman (Yes) , Bev Bevan (The Move, ELO), Clive Bunker (Jethro Tull), Paul Jones (Manfred Man, The Blues Band), Don Airey (Gary Moore, Deep Purple, Ozzy Osbourne), Eric Bell (Thin Lizzy) plus many more.

Over the years he has played drums for Denny Laine (Wings and The Moody Blues), Eric Bell (Thin Lizzy), Lieutenant Pigeon, Alan Silson (Smokie), Eric Haydock (The Hollies), Trevor Burton (The Move, Steve Gibbons) Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix Experience).

Guitarist and Vocalist Graham Pollock 

also started performing in the 1960's.

He also performed in The Bay City Rollers with Eric Faulkner and with John Steel of The Animals.
