Celebrating their 51 years as a band, the current lineup consists of founding members Mel Schacher (bass) and Don Brewer (drums) aided by former Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick, singer Max Carl (formerly of 38 Special) and keyboardist Tim Cashion. This incarnation of the band has been together since 2000.
