The Members United Kingdom
The Members were formed in 1977 by Nicky Tesco. Tesco was a graduate who, having failed to emigrate to Canada, had returned to Camberley, Surrey, UK, and had been working in a variety of jobs when the opportunity arose to form a band. Linking up with a friend and local guitarist Gary Baker an initial four piece was formed. Tesco soon added trainee merchant banker Jean Marie Carroll, known as JC, to the lineup having been a long admirer of his style and songwriting abilities.
