Rock legends NAZARETH have announced a new vocalist, Linton Osborne, who will be replacing Dan McCafferty who leave the band this past August because of health issues.

The band released the following statement:

"After extensive auditions, the band was knocked out by Linton’s voice, presence and style. And he’s a thoroughly good guy! Born in Edinburgh, Scotland and raised in Rosyth near Dunfermline, 41-year-old Linton has been singing and performing professionally for as long as he can remember. A long time fan of NAZARETH and Dan McCafferty, on his selection as NAZARETH’s new singer Linton simply says, 'It’s better than winning the lottery!'

As well as a passion for rock ‘n’ roll and singing, Linton also enjoys kickboxing and likes to stay in shape. His enthusiasm and energy has been a shot in the arm for the band, and a real boost after the keen sense of loss and sadness at the sudden retirement of our dear friend and brother, Dan.

Dan was pleased to hear that Linton, a ‘local lad’, had been chosen to follow in his footsteps. The two singers have met and get on very well. It seems that they have a lot in common, not least a love for old time rock ‘n’ roll, with the legendary Little Richard being a firm favorite of them both. Dan was heartfelt in expressing his feelings toward Linton and the band, wishing them good luck, safe travels and success in the future. We love you Dan.

Linton is thrilled to be a part of the bands continuing story and is excited about taking the music forward. NAZARETH are now able to move ahead with rehearsals and will be back on the road very soon. See you out there…"
