Their songs have been covered by acts as diverse as Ride, Boney M and the Sex Pistols; they impressed Pete Townsend so much that he asked their guitarist to join the already successful Who; said guitarist pioneered the use of a bow on guitar strings - a trick later plagiarised by Jimmy Page; they have been cited as an influence by the likes of Paul Weller and John Lydon. Yet The Creation never had a hit single or even made an album in their two year recording career, from 1966-68. But, nevertheless, they are cherished by generations of fans. This is their untold story.
