b. London, England. While a member of Audience in 1972, this singing guitarist composed incidental music for the movie Bronco Bullfrog. This was recorded by the band just before its dissolution in 1972. Werth was then short-listed as a replacement for Jim Morrison in a possible re-formation of the Doors. Still bound to Charisma Records via the Audience contract, he spent the next two years recording King Brilliant which was produced by Gus Dudgeon - who had also worked with Audience - with accompaniment by ‘The Moonbeams’ (in real life, members of Hookfoot). After this failed to supersede the cult acclaim he had earned with his old band, Werth maintained a vinyl silence until 6ix Of 1ne And... 1/2 A Dozen Of The Other was released in 1979. Recorded with a number of UK new wave musicians and featuring material Werth had originally worked on with Ray Manzarek of the Doors, this quixotic album showcased a fresh approach to music but ultimately met with the same commercial fate as King Brilliant.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
