  Biography  

Prior to his association with Jethro Tull, Gerry Conway was the drummer for the band Fotheringay as well as for Eclection . In their early years, Steeleye Span also drafted in the services of Conway, who was a friend of the band. Conway played on their now-classic song "Dark-Eyed Sailor" from their first album, Hark! The Village Wait . His studio works also include the debut solo albums of Sandy Denny and Shelagh McDonald and appearances on albums by Wizz Jones, John Cale, Jim Capaldi and others. He toured and recorded as a member of Cat Stevens' band for six years.

Conway was a consistent member of the close knit Cat Stevens backing band throughout the mid 1970s. When Stevens gave up his pop music career at the close of the decade, Conway performed on Daydo; the short-lived solo album of singer-songwriter Alun Davies, another long-term member of Stevens' band.

Conway has secured the drummer's position in Fairport Convention and Pentangle . In the years since 2006, Davies has re-joined with Stevens . Both Conway and Davies additionally play in a side project called "Good Men in the Jungle", which features Davies' daughter, Becky Moncurr.
