Founded in the latter half of 1981 when guitarist Wayne Kay met Brad Richardson at a rock disco in their home town of Stockport, England. After hearing Brad singing along to some of the tunes being played, he told him he was putting together a band and wondered if he'd be interested in having a go at vocals. Together, with friend and bassist Dave Walker, the nucleus of Amethyst was formed.
