Blackstone - 1973 - On The Line

In February 1972 former Rhinoceros members John Finley, Michael Fonfara, Danny Weis, Larry Leishman and Peter Hodgson reunited as a new act calling themselves The Blackstone Rangers. The line-up is completed with new drummer, Richard Steinberg, and ex-McKenna Mendelsohn Mainline member Frank 'Zeke' Sheppard. Not long after, the band soon has to shorten its name to Blackstone after being threatened by the local Black Panthers' motorcycle escort who have the same moniker. Within the year former Rhinoceros' producer/creator Paul Rothchild travels to Toronto and records the group's debut (and only) album "On The Line". With the album getting poor reviews and sales, by March 1973, the group's membership begins jumping ship. Fonfara and Weis carry on briefly with new singer Mike Stull and ex-Bush bassist Prakash John and drummer Penti 'Whitey' Glan, but the band crashes and burns in Los Angeles. John and Glan would go on to join Lou Reed's touring band (and eventually Alice Cooper) while Fonfara and Weis become top session musicians.
