After Spooky Tooth's split in 1974, he continued his solo career culminating in "Dream Weaver". The single peaked at #2 for 3 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1976, and went gold. It was also featured in the Wayne's World film and soundtrack. Later that year, his follow-up single "Love Is Alive" also reached #2 (for 2 weeks).
Ronnie Montrose played guitar on the Gary Wright song "Power Of Love" from the Dream Weaver album. This would be the last significant success Wright would achieve on the pop chart until 1981, when he returned with "Really Wanna Know You, a bouncy, bass-heavy pop song that hit #16. His 1981 song "Comin' Apart" was sampled by Armand van Helden in the 2004 club music anthem "My, My, My". On June 8, 2010, Gary Wright released Connected, his first new pop/rock album in over 20 years. The album's lead single "Satisfied" has special guest appearances by Ringo Starr on drums, with both Joe Walsh and Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter on guitar. Wright continues to tour, most recently as a member of the supergroup 'Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band'. Read more on Last.fm.
