The Attack are a band formed in 1966 around singer Richard Shirman (born 26 April 1949, London). The first line-up featured drummer Alan Whitehead from Marmalade, guitarist David O'List (later of The Nice) and John Du Cann. Their first single "Try It" had also been recorded by The Standells and Ohio Express. They also released a version of "Hi Ho Silver Lining", a few days earlier than Jeff Beck. Richard Shirman was invited to be singer with Andromeda but he declined.

In 1979 Shirmam reunited The Attack. Two years later he founded another band Hershey and the 12 Bars who released an album in 2000: Greatest Hits Volume II (A New Day Records, AND CD43). The line-up was: Richard 'Hershey' Shirman: vocals, harmonica, Mike Summerland: lead guitar, Ernie Hayes: rhythm guitar, Gary Baldwin: Hammond organ, Al MacLean: bass, Alan Coulter: drums

Shirman suffers from multiple sclerosis.
