Bob Dalton started his musical career at the age of 13 years, playing working mens clubs in the North of England. For the next eight years he would learn his trade as a drummer playing covers of chart songs both old and new with three other musicians under the name of It Bites
In 1984 It Bites moved from the North of England to London in search of a record deal, and after two years of writing songs they finally signed a deal with Virgin Records. It Bites went on to produce three studio albums: "Big Lad In The Windmill" "Once Around The World" "Eat Me In St Louis" and one live album "Thankyou And Goodnight". A total of 8 singles were released, one of which "Calling All The Heros" reached number 5 in the UK charts.
After spending many years touring England, Europe, Japan and America headlining venues such as Hammersmith Odeon in the UK and supporting other bands such as Go West, Robert Plant, Marillion, Jethro Tull, John Wetton, Asia, Fleetwood Mac and Saxon the band eventually split up and went their seperate ways. Bob Dalton however, continued playing and recording with other artistes such as Jethro Tull, John Wetton, Kim Wilde and Ray Davies from The Kinks".
In 2004 Bob was teaching at The Academy of Contemporary Music in Surrey when he was asked to join The Chris Norman Band. He was with the band until 2007 playing regular shows, travelling to places such as Moscow, New York and Chicago. The band was playing in front of 2000 people at Chris' indoor shows in Germany, and 25,000 or more at festivals around Europe. Bob also recorded two live dvd's and one studio album with Chris.
Bob Dalton plays on a regular basis in London and was involved in a new It Bites album "The Tall Ships" released last year. They are constantly touring and have already played live shows in America, Japan and Europe, and are about to commence their second UK tour in September 2009.
Bob Dalton has also studied with the renowned drum tutor Bob Armstrong for five years.
