They opened for Jane's Addiction, headlined some of their own club shows, and even appeared on TV's Unsolved Mysteries which helped them get signed to Geffen whom released their cover of Aretha Franklin hit, "Chain Of Fools", as the debut single. The thought of these guys playing such a soul classic forever confused the public, and led to lackluster sales. The second full-length album would have Earl Slick (whom Young did some vocals for on his solo album) of Dirty White Boy, Ian Hunter, etc., replacing Apache on guitar. Marc Danzeisen (ex-Riverdogs) became the new drummer for the Influence tour, which would end up being the bands swan song, as it became apparent that success would never come their way.
Young would briefly take his soulful growl on the road with the Four Horsemen when Frank C. Starr was comatose before surfacing in the supe group Manic Eden with former Quiet Riot and Whitesnake members. The original band reformed for some live shows in 2001, but there is no word if a new album will see the light of day. An interesting small trivia, Ron Young played a small role in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. He's the biker gang member who gets thrown true a window in the beginning of the movie.
