McGuinness Flint was formed in 1970 by Tom McGuinness, former bassist and guitarist with Manfred Mann, and Hughie Flint, former drummer with John Mayall, vocalist and keyboard player Dennis Coulson, and multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Benny Gallagher and Graham Lyle
Their first single "When I'm Dead and Gone" reached #2 on the UK Singles Chart in 1970 and #47 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100
The debut album 'McGuinness Flint' also made the Top 10 of the UK Albums Chart. In 1999, it received another outing, in the soundtrack of the film 'East is East'
The follow-up single "Malt and Barley Blues" was a UK #5 hit in 1971 and Roy Orbison was so impressed with the song that he considered recording it
The second album 'Happy Birthday Ruthy Baby' contained some Gallagher and Lyle songs, notably "Sparrow", which attracted several cover versions
