  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor: Gary Richrath's alcoholism led to his 1989 dismissal from the band, under the condition that he could come back when he was truly sober. He released a few solo albums, but was able to reunite with them only once, for a 2013 benefit, two years before his death.
  • What Could Have Been: At one point in 1976; Greg X. Volz was briefly considered as a possible lead vocalist before turning it down shortly after Volz became a Christian; leading to the return of Kevin Cronin just in time for the group's most successful period; while Volz eventually became the lead vocalist for pioneering Christian rock band Petra in 1979, just as that group began experiencing their first sustained success as well.
