what happened next
Most of the band are still in the business. AFL has played with many fine musicians including Joe Satriani and more recently Roger Waters on his world tours. BJ Cole has played with many fine artistes and is much in demand. As for Rabbit, his associations go back to the days of the Free and is practically a permanent fixture in The Who. Dave Mattacks played Friars in 1977 with the McGarrigles. AFL toured the UK through the 2012.

Meal Ticket came to an end by the end of the decade
