Axis Point was a rock band formed by former Family guitarist Charlie Whitney in 1979. The band signed to RCA and released two albums in a twelve-month period. The line-up of the band was an eclectic mix of well known musicians of that time. They disbanded in 1980.
The original line-up of Axis Point included, guitarist Charlie Whitney, keyboardist Eddie Hardin, bassist Charles McCracken and drummer Rob TownsendFamily and Medicine Head. They recorded Axis Point (1979) with the addition of guitarist and vocalist Bobby Tench, who had previously been a member of Streetwalkers. The songwriting on this album is split between Harden and Whitney with McCraken co-writing "Woman of the world" and "Fire it up". Townsend left and was replaced by Les Binks and they recorded their second album Boast of the Town (1980), on which Whitney and McCracken collaborate on most of the songs. Binks went onto drum with Judas Priest.
