Luther James Grosvenor (born 23 December 1946 in Evesham, Worcestershire) is an English rock musician, who played guitar in Spooky Tooth, briefly in Stealers Wheel and, under the pseudonym "Ariel Bender", in Mott the Hoople. Luther first began playing in local bands in his hometown of Evesham. He met Jim Capaldi, later known from Traffic, with whom he formed a group called Deep Feeling. Later he joined a group called The V.I.P.'s, in which Keith Emerson played for some time. The V.I.P.'s were renamed into Art, and by 1967 into Spooky Tooth. The years with Spooky Tooth (1967 to 1970), Stealers Wheel (1973) and Mott the Hoople (1973 to 1974) were the most successful years in his musical career. After leaving Mott the Hoople, Luther published a few solo albums, and formed a group called Widowmaker, that existed until 1977. In the 1990s Luther Grosvenor returned in a Spooky Tooth reunion. In 2005, he revived his pseudonym, forming the Ariel Bender Band. In 2007 and 2008 he is performing under the name Ariel Benders Mott The Hoople performing Spooky Tooth and Mott The Hoople classics as well as cover stuff. Retrieved from ""

  5. my all time favorite album. i was a senior in high school and listened to this countless times. the only other album that i played even half as much that year was "who's next". "under open skies" was so unlike anything else i had ever heard and remains just as fresh and hypnotic today as it did then. this album is a snapshot of my life that will never fade. wherever you are luther, cheers mate! david waters
