Steve Upton
Steve Upton is the former drummer for the British rock band Wishbone Ash. He was with the band for two decades. His tight, precise drumming would be a key element of the band's sound, and Upton was one of the first drummers to sport the open-handed drumming. Upton, at some stages of the band's career, took care of the day-to-day running of the band, earning himself the title 'The Colonel'. By the late 1980s Upton effectively had assumed the role of band manager.
