Hair Of The Dog attained platinum in the U.S. and has to date sold in excess of two million copies. It is the band's most well known album, it contains their biggest ever hit "Love Hurts" which reached No.8 in the U.S., and also holds the record for the number of weeks spent on the Norwegian chart. Charlton also produced the self titled Dan McCafferty debut LP around this time. After leaving Nazareth in 1990, Charlton played some solo shows on the Scottish club circuit, and released his first solo album Drool in 1997, on the Red Steel label with Neil Miller on vocals. The following year, he relocated to Texas, where he formed the Manny Charlton Band (MCB).
The new outfit released a pair of albums — Stonkin and Klone This — before disbanding in 2003. Charlton then focused on solo material again, releasing Say The Word on the Scottish label River Records in 2004. 2005 saw the release of Sharp, which is on the whole a covers album, including Tim Hardin's "Hang On To A Dream" and Bob Dylan's "Shelter From The Storm". Later that year, Charlton completed the follow up to Sharp, the aptly named Sharp Re-Loaded. In early 2006, Charlton joined the Swedish rock band, From Behind who also have the ex-Samson frontman Nicky Moore on vocals. From Behind have recently released their debut album titled Game Over, and are currently touring around Europe.
