Biography

This American quartet comprised John Fannon (guitar, vocals), Jimmy Waldo (keyboards), Gary Shea (bass) and Hirsh Gardener (drums). Taken under the wing of Kiss manager, Bill Aucoin, they purveyed sophisticated, melodic rock in a vein similar to Styx and Journey. In 1979 they were given the chance to impress on a major stage, landing the support slot on the American leg of the Kiss tour. Although competent, their music lacked individuality and the band themselves had a nondescript image. After a third album, produced by Todd Rundgren, the band disintegrated in 1981, with Waldo and Shea eventually going on to join Alcatrazz.
