Ken Hensley

Ken Hensley

Real/full name:
Kenneth William David Hensley
74 (born Aug 24th, 1945)
Place of origin:
United Kingdom (Plumstead, London, England)


Ken Hensley is a keyboard player, guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer, mostly known as an original member of Uriah Heep, for whom he wrote, or co-wrote, some of their biggest hits. Since leaving Uriah Heep in 1980, he has played with Blackfoot and maintained a lengthy solo career. He has also guested with several metal bands and projects.


Ken has since disowned his performance on W.A.S.P.'s The Headless Children, something Blackie Lawless attributed at the time to him (Hensley) becoming a reborn Christian (of course, Blackie Lawless later became a reborn Christian himself, disowning W.A.S.P.'s debut release "Animal (F**k Like a Beast)").
