what happened next
Camel are true Friars heroes and continued with Andy Latimer at the helm (and Colin Bass from 1979) until 2003 when they undertook a farewell tour and more or less permanent hiatus. This was largely due to Latimer being in poor health but as at 2012, very pleased to report he is much better and they reconvened in 2013 to perform The Snow Goose and play more UK gigs in 2015
