Limited 180gm heavyweight vinyl LP pressing. Firefly is the 10th album released by British rock band Uriah Heep. It was first album without David Byron, lead vocalist and a founding member of the band, and the first of three albums with John Lawton. Bassist Trevor Bolder made his Uriah Heep debut on this album. Barring a break of about 18 months in the early 1980s, he remained with the group until his death in 2013. The first single from the album was "Wise Man". "Sympathy" also became a hit. "Who Needs Me" was written by drummer Lee Kerslake and is about his unhappiness of manager and label boss Gerry Bron's rejection of most material not written by Ken Hensley. This is ultimately somewhat ironic, given the song's acceptance for recording. Kerslake was credited as Lee "The Bear" Kerslake on this album only, due to his strong physical build and then newly acquired beard growth.
