Profile:

Renowned for being Rod Stewart's first band.

Originally formed as The 5 Dimensions, they changed their name to Jimmy Powell And The 5 Dimensions following some line up changes, and joining up with popular Birmingham-born singer, Jimmy Powell (2).

Jimmy hooked up with local band, Puzzle, and continued to perform as Jimmy Powell and The Dimensions until their demise, in 1972.
