Eddy Grant

avatar

Eddy Grant (born Edmond Montague Grant, 5 March 1948), is a Plaisance, Guyana born musician. When he was still a young boy, his parents emigrated to the UK, where he settled. He had his first Number One hit in 1968, when he was the lead guitarist and main songwriter of the multiracial group, The Equals. It was his self-penned song, "Baby Come Back" that flew to the chart summit. The tune also later topped the UK Singles Chart again when covered by Pato Banton. Notably, he openly used his songwriting for political purposes, especially against the then-current apartheid regime of South Africa.
