Silverhead disbanded not long after this gig. Nigel Harrison (local boy from Risborough) joined Blondie. Blunt worked for Robert Plant. Des Barres was also involved in Duran Duran offshoot supergroup The Power Station.

As at 2012 the original line up of Silverhead played gigs in japan

Blue were not the boy band and even a judge agreed that people could tell the difference after it went to court between these 70s Scots rockers and the boy band and they could both use the name
