what happened next
Well, Mann has kept the Earthband going and they're very popular in Europe and still gigging with the latest line up which includes Upp's Jimmy Copley. Their last big hit was Davy's On The Road again in 1978.

Wally went on to headline Friars in 1975 and disbanded in 1978, reforming in 2009.
