Beverley "Bev" Bevan (born in November 1944[1] [2] [3]) is an English rock musician, who was the drummer and one of the original members of The Move and Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). After the end of ELO in 1986, he founded ELO Part II.

Bevan also served as the touring drummer for Black Sabbath during the Born Again Tour, and later played percussion on The Eternal Idol album in 1987. Bevan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017 as a member of Electric Light Orchestra.[4]

Biography[edit]

Bevan was born in South Yardley Birmingham, England.[5] After attending Moseley Grammar School, where he gained two O level passes, he worked as a trainee buyer in a city centre department store called The Beehive with school friend Jasper Carrott (Bob Davis).

His professional music career started with a stint with Denny Laine in his group Denny Laine and the Diplomats, then with Carl Wayne & the Vikings, followed by The Move in 1966. The Electric Light Orchestra released their first album in 1971, by which time The Move existed only as a recording outfit. They released their final single, "California Man" in 1972.

Bevan has a deep singing voice. While with The Move he lent lead vocals to two tracks: a remake of "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart" and the country and western spoof, "Ben Crawley Steel Co". He composed one Move song entitled "Don't Mess Me Up", an Elvis Presley spoof from the album Message from the Country. and it was the B-side of The Move's single, "Tonight". He is also, albeit incorrectly, credited with writing the rock-blues "Turkish Tram Conductor Blues" from the album Looking On, but in reality it was Roy Wood who composed the song.[6]

He recorded a solo single in 1976, a cover version of the Sandy Nelson instrumental, "Let There Be Drums". Bevan played on all Electric Light Orchestra and ELO Part II albums up to 1999. In 1980 Bevan published a historical memoir of the Electric Light Orchestra. In 1983, he replaced Bill Ward in Black Sabbath during the Born Again Tour. Bevan was known for his heavy powerhouse drumming during this tour. Bevan also appeared in two music videos ("Trashed" and "Zero the Hero").

After the death of Carl Wayne in 2004, he formed a new band, Bev Bevan's Move,[7] with Phil Tree and former ELO Part II colleagues Phil Bates and Neil Lockwood, to play a set comprising mostly The Move classics on tour. Bates left in July 2007 to re-join ELO Part II, by then renamed to The Orchestra. Bevan was then joined by former Move guitarist Trevor Burton.

Bevan appeared on Paul Weller's 2010 album Wake Up The Nation and played drums on two songs: "Moonshine" and "Wake Up The Nation". Weller told him that he was his second choice; his first choice would have been Keith Moon.[8]

Bevan currently presents a radio show on BBC Radio West Midlands on Sunday afternoons. He also reviews records for the Midlands' Sunday Mercury and has a blog on their website.[9] It was announced at the Best of Broad Street Awards on 17 January 2011 that Bevan would be honoured with a star on the Birmingham Walk of Stars.[10]

Bevan is also a patron of The Dorridge Music School (Knowle). In 2012, Bevan narrated the audiobook version of Tony Iommi's biography Iron Man – My Journey Through Heaven and Hell.[11] Bevan's 2014 calendar contained no fewer than 102 gigs in 11 months,[12] some of which formed the final gigs for The Move, before Bevan and Burton went their separate ways again.

Personal life[edit]

Bevan lives with his wife, Valerie, and their son, Adrian. He is a follower of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.[13][14]
