Profile John Verity is an English guitarist formerly with the band Argent from 1973 to 1976. When Argent split up, he formed Phoenix with Bob Henrit and Jim Rodford. The band recorded three albums with CBS Records and toured Europe before disbanding. During the early 1980s Verity worked with Brian Connolly (former vocalist with Sweet) in an attempt to launch him as a solo artist. A single, “Hypnotised” was released on Carrere Records in 1982 produced by Verity, and written by Joe Lynn Turner. Verity was part of Connolly’s backing band Encore when they supported Pat Benatar at the beginning of 1983.

In 1983 his first solo album released titled “Interrupted Journey” on PRT Records. “Rock Solid” is his second album released in 1989 on WEA Records. The music is commercial and melodic, specifically oriented to the US market with big arena guitars, anthemic choruses and good doses of keyboards. A great blend of powerful guitar hard rockers with american AOR, perfectly balanced , skillfully produced, and pretty unknown to the big audience. “Play to Win” , “Two Heart Burning”, “I’m On Your Side”  and “Lonely in the Night” are the highlights here.
