Separation Period (1987–1997)
After the band's break-up, former members were involved in different projects:
- Snider formed Desperado, Widowmaker, and SMFs. Joey Franco also played drums in Widowmaker. He also wrote and starred in the movie Strangeland. A sequel, Strangeland 2, is planned.
- Ojeda went on to join Scarecrow and then formed Prisoners of War. Both projects were unsuccessful. He also worked as a session guitarist and guitar instructor.
- French stopped performing except for some guest appearances. He formed French Management and produced the alternative metal band Sevendust's first self-titled album.
- Mendoza briefly joined Blackfoot. Then he worked as a producer and manager. He also occasionally pursued solo projects.
- Pero was involved in several projects and subsequently toured with Snider's SMFs.
- Franco worked as a session drummer and played with Snider's Widowmaker.
In 1992, Atlantic Records, released a "best of" album Big Hits and Nasty Cuts that also featured some live performances from the Under The Blade period. This album was compiled by French. A live album from the Stay Hungry era named Live At Hammersmith was released in 1994 by CMC International.
Famous quotes containing the words period and/or separation:
“Of all the barbarous middle ages, that
Which is most barbarous is the middle age
Of man! it isI really scarce know what;
But when we hover between fool and sage,
And dont know justly what we would be at
A period something like a printed page,
Black letter upon foolscap, while our hair
Grows grizzled, and we are not what we were.”
—George Gordon Noel Byron (17881824)
“... the separation of church and state means separationabsolute and eternalor it means nothing.”
—Agnes E. Meyer (18871970)
