After Argent, Russ Ballard started his solo career and did a huge tour in 1976. Since then, some more tours took place. You might find some ‘gaps’ in touring between 1976 and the early 90s, when you think of other musicians, who toured more frequently. There is a very simple Russ Ballard answer behind this …’I wanted to see my kids grew up!’. Reason enough, not doing massive tours. Nevertheless he toured with Roger Daltrey in the 80s, as Roger asked him to play the guitar for him. On this tour, the audience saw Russ play some of his hits as well. Playing live is a buzz, as Russ said a couple of times and it looks, like he still loves being on stage.
