Robertson teamed up with Motorhead a year later and recorded "Another Perfect Day" in 1983, before moving on to join fellow Scotsman Frankie Miller on the "Dancing In The Rain" album in 1986. Edwards continued with a number of different acts, including Bernie Marsden's S.O.S., Grand Prix, and Lionheart. Bain assembled a new Wild Horses line-up featuring Lockton, former Lautrec stepfather and son team, Reuben (vocals) and Laurence Archer (guitar), and "The Def Leppard E.P." credited drummer Frank Noon. The Archers and Noon left only months later and went on to form their own band, Stampede, and Wild Horses ceased to exist, with Bain joining his former Rainbow bandmate Ronnie James Dio in Dio, while Lockton became a member of German hard rockers Victory. Wild Horses members Laurence Archer and Clive Edwards were part of the UFO line-up that recorded the "High Stakes & Dangerous Men" and "Lights Out In Tokyo" albums in the early 1990s, before spending time in Medicine Head. Both "The First Album" and "Stand Your Ground" were re-issued on CD in Japan and Europe in the 1990s; the latest set of re-issues came on 26 May 2009 through UK-based Krescendo Records. Wild Horses (US) Wild Horses was formed by former Kingdom Come member James Kottak (drums) and ex-King Kobra front man Johnny Edwards, the two had previously worked together in Buster Brown and a revamped Montrose. A few members came and went before they added another Kingdom Come alumni in Rick Steier.
A major label contract was handed to the band almost immediately, but at the same time Edwards was given the opportunity to front the legendary Foreigner and he jumped at the chance. John Levesque was brought in as the new vocalist with Jeff Pilson of Dokken handling the bass duties (although the album listed Chris Lester as the group's official bassist). The radio-friendly melodic rock album got rave reviews, but was ignored by the record buying public and the band quickly folded. Kottak and Steier resurfaced in Warrant, with Kottak departing in 1996 and Steier in 2000.
Both would show up together in a band called Krunk before Kottak rose to stardom as a member of the Scorpions. In 2002 it was announced that Wild Horses would return with the same line-up that recorded the debut album (with Pilson on bass once again), and release a new album titled Dead Ahead Read more on Last.fm.
