Bio:

Taxi were a twin guitar progressive rock and blues band similar in style to Jethro Tull. The following bio was provided by Trevor Erwin's wife Linda Erwin:


Taxi split in 1970 or 1971. Sammy Nevin joined Ironhorse. Is this the Sammy Nevin who later played in Rondo Rondo? Sammy is still active, one of his recent bands being Bowana. Another musician's name has been mentioned in connection with his group and that's Sammy Whiteside (lead guitar), who later worked with Alan Dee. This may be a pseudonym.
