Biography of Aynsley Dunbar

Aynsley Dunbar, born on January 10, 1946, is an English rock musician and drummer. He came close to becoming the drummer for "The Jimi Hendrix Experience." At the audition before Hendrix, Dunbar was pitted against another talented musician, Mitch Mitchell. Both musicians were exceptional, but Hendrix decided to leave the decision to chance, flipping a coin that ultimately favored Mitchell.

Blue Whale and Collaboration with Frank Zappa

After some time, Dunbar formed a progressive rock band called "Blue Whale," which embarked on a tour of Scandinavia in January 1970. However, the group disbanded shortly after due to musical differences. Dunbar also played drums for "Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention," contributing to albums such as "Waka/Jawaka," "The Grand Wazoo," and "200 Motels." A track from their last album was featured in the film "Dirty Duck."

Journey and Jefferson Starship

In the mid-1970s, Dunbar joined the band "Journey," collaborating on four albums: "Journey" (1975), "Look into the Future" (1976), "Next" (1977), and "Infinity" (1978). He also worked with "Jefferson Starship," resulting in albums like "Freedom at Point Zero" (1979), "Modern Times" (1981), and "Winds of Change" (1982).

Later Career

In 1985, Dunbar worked with "Whitesnake" and later recorded with Eric Burdon and "The Animals." In 2005, he collaborated with Jake E. Lee on his solo album "Retraced." Currently, Dunbar is working on a new album with Mickey Thomas (from "Starship"), Jake E. Lee, and Ozzy Osbourne.
