was short-lived, and the band returned home broke and disillusioned. The group then met Sandy Lizner, who would become their mentor and collaborator, introducing them to management and the record company executive that would later sign them. Saraya and Munier wrote material for the debut album over the next year, realizing in this time that there had to be a change in the band. The final piece of the puzzle was when Tony Rey Bruno (guitar, ex-Danger Danger), Gary Taylor (bass) and Chuck Bonfante (drums) auditioned and rounded out the new Saraya line-up.
The debut album had minor hits with "Love Has Taken It's Toll" and "Back To The Bullet". Internal disputes and dissatisfaction with musical direction led to the departure of Munier and Taylor in 1990. Bassist Barry Dunaway (Yngwie Malmsteen and Joe Lynn Turner) was recruited for the less successful sophomore effort. The album was basically recorded without a keyboard player, as John Riggio was brought in for the accompanying tour.
A third album was rumored to be recorded, but never released, and the band quickly disappeared. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
