Roger Arnold "Deke" Leonard (18 December 1944 – 31 January 2017) was a Welsh rock musician, "serving a life sentence in the music business". Best known as a member of the progressive rock band Man, which he joined and left several times, and for fronting his own rock and roll band Iceberg, which he formed and disbanded several times, he was also an author, raconteur and television panelist.
Leonard went on to form his own group called Iceberg before re-joining Man in 1974 through to 1976 when the group disbanded. He speaks to Johnnie about his memories of the decade and picks some of his favourite songs.
A Hard Way To Live 07. Broken Ovation 08. Jesse 0. Deke' Leonard, who apparently took his adopted name from that of Deke Rivers, the character played by Elvis Presley in the 1957 feature film, 'Loving You', widely regarded as one of the three best movies ever made by 'The King'. Deke Leonard's fame has yet to equal that of one of his early heroes, and his career has taken a very different direction - but he's still here.
Deke Leonard was one of the founding members of MAN in 1969 and then Martin Ace joined in 1970. At this time - September 1973 - they are members of ICEBERG and the songs are not very similar to the MAN performance at this evening. The four ICEBERG tracks are all written by Deke Leonard. He is responsible for a more Rock & Roll/Hard Rock touch. 7171 551' is an easy but nice song with a remarkable theme and the rest is jamming. The song later on was a standard in all MAN concerts with Leonard in the line-up
A Hard Way To Live mp. It's a compilation of three radio sessions recorded by Deke Leonard's Iceberg between 1972 & ’74. The first two sessions (tracks 1-7) were recorded in Europe. The third session (tracks 8-11) was recorded for John Peel’s Radio 1 show.
