For nearly half a century the four members of “The Former Members” have been creating musical history. David, Bruce, Greg and Roy have all followed their own careers, collaborating with a plethora of world-class musicians along the way. Each one of them has been a key contributor to some of the most seminal creations of our era with their compositions, theatrical productions, writings, musical performances and recordings.
Back in 1967, the landmark three-day rock concert, The Monterey International Pop Music Festival was held in California and featured the first major American appearances by Jimi Hendrix and The Who and the first major public performance of Janis Joplin.
