«I took the Lemon Drop with me on tour as my main guitar and it certainly made an impact! In fact, I would go so far as to say it has attracted more compliments and positive attention than any guitar I’ve ever had!» – Paul Raymond.
Raymond began his musical career as a keyboardist/vocalist for the band, Plastic Penny, in 1967. He left after the band split up in 1968. He replaced Christine Perfect (later to become Christine McVie) in British blues band Chicken Shack when she left to join Fleetwood Mac. Raymond then found his way into the band Savoy Brown as their keyboardist/guitarist. He subsequently recorded with ex-Fleetwood Mac guitarist Danny Kirwan.
He was later recruited by UFO in 1976 to replace their first keyboardist Danny Peyronel. When Michael Schenker left UFO, Raymond was a helpful hand in songwriting. He later joined Schenker’s own band, MSG, in 1981 as well as Way’s own band, Waysted, in 1983. Raymond has been working on and off with original members Phil Mogg, Andy Parker and Pete Way along with Schenker in UFO from 1976 to the present day.
