John featured former Black Sabbath vocalist David Donato, St John's older brother and guitar technician during his time in Kiss Michael Norton on bass, and drummer Brian James Fox. The band whose Glam metal image and sound was somewhat similar to 80's-era Kiss were dropped from their record label in later 1986 after executives saw no potential hit singles on their self titled debut album (White Tiger). In 1998 St. John was offered a contract with a small record label to record a new album with the band, which resulted in 1999's Raw which featured 20 previously unreleased demos and outtakes. Since the release of Raw and a few dates in the Los Angeles area nothing has been heard from the band and they are believed to have disbanded for good. On April 5, 2007, Mark St. John died from an apparent cerebral hemorrhage at age 51.
