Kim Mitchell has been pretty successful on his own after he left Max Webster though.

I'm a huge Evanescence fan and have tickets for a show in May. Love Amy Lee's voice and song writing. Fallen is their first commercial success. The Open Door is okay. The third is self titled and is usually referred to as E3 and it is exceptional. I've seen that band more than any other and have travelled from Atlanta to Nashville and Greenville to see shows. There's a full live show on youtube done for Live Nation, it was done in New York so it's easy to find. It was live streamed and really shows how good they are, most bands can't pull that off.

Pentagram. Kick *** band - hard rockin'. Never made it because of the lead singer and songwriter had a helluva drug problem.

The singer from Fastway went on to form a little group called "Flogging Molly"......

Florida band named Stranger should have made it. Great hard rocking live band. Got signed to a label that tried to turn them into a ballad band like Aerosmith or Def Leppard...didn't work.

Although they did well in other bands, "Hughes Thrall" band was seriously underrated imo,

The whole album rocks.
