DUST was an American hard rock band active in the early 1970s. Dust was formed in the late 1960s by RICHIE WISE and two teenagers, KENNY AARONSON and MARC BELL. Additionally, KENNY KERNER wrote the group's lyrics, and acted as their producer and manager. Their debut album was released on Kama Sutra Records in 1971, and was followed by a sophomore release on the same label the following year. While the group only released these two albums, they later became of historical interest to collectors interested in early American heavy metal. The group's members all went on to other projects.
