Nazareth are a Scottish hard rock band, founded in 1968, that had several hits in the United Kingdom in the early 1970s, and established an international audience with their 1975 album Hair of the Dog. Perhaps their best-known hit single was a cover of the ballad “Love Hurts”, in 1975. The band continues to record and tour. Originally formed by Brian MacLeod and Ab Bryant as a sort of ‘side project’ from Chilliwack, Headpins was rounded out by drummer Bernie Aubin and Darby Mills, one of the west coast’s hottest new singers. Their impact was immediate even before they’d landed a record deal, quickly earning the reputation as one of the west coast’s most energetic and magnetic live groups.
