The main lead singer of the band (Rick sang some lead too) is the district sales manager (Kentucky & Tennessee) for Fender and now resides in the Cincinnati area. After Morningstar, Mike kicked around with a few bands in Kansas City before moving to Colorado and hooking up with a unique three-piece band called The Play. There he found his wife-to-be, Diane. They have been married since 1986 and have two boys.
The drummer (and most constant member) of the band was last known to be operating his own antique store in Kansas City.
The founder and eventual manager of Morningstar is in Vermont managing radio stations. After Morningstar disbanded, Michael went to work for KY-102 in the fall of 1980 as the Promotion Director and released a 'Homegrown' album for the station featuring a lot of great Kansas City bands. He briefly worked for KKCI 106.5 and then the Uptown Theatre before moving to Portland, Maine in the fall of 1985. He still enjoys writing and recording music.
A Word From Oscar|
Although not on the level of The Who or The Stones, the lads in Morningstar were rock stars in their own right. Watch the movie "Almost Famous" and you'll get a good idea of what I'm talking about.
