Named for a Dickens character, the British band Uriah Heep were there at the creation of hard rock. By the early Eighties, bad feelings among the group's key members left founder Mick Box with the band name and little else: "I locked myself in my flat and drank myself senseless," he once recalled. But he and the band regrouped, touring with Rush and Def Leppard, among others. Last year they released their 23rd album.
