The band was formed by vocalist and DJ Ray Edwards.
The Preachers was David’s third band. In Shades Valley High School in Birmingham in the early 60’s, David played lead guitar for The Knights. I was the singer (little guy on the end) and “booking manager.” Other members were Bill Ashton (sax), Carson Hood (bass), Dudley Parker (keyboards), and Bic Mitchell (drums). David took over lead vocals and sort of manager. They changed their name to The Original Knights and put out a 45 record to promote the band.
