Crow — Generation Two Featuring Dave Wagner
(1980-1982)

History

November 1979 : David Anthony (booking agent/promoter) had started talking with Dave Wagner (real name, Dave Waggoner) about the possibilities of getting Crow back on the road performing and recording.  He finally convinced Dave Wagner to give Crow another try.  The original line up of musicians was not available so the next alternative was to put together a group of solid musicians to back Dave up calling it Crow featuring Dave Wagner.

May 1980: David Anthony contacted Denny Johnson to put together a new back up group for Dave Wagner. The band line up became Robby Belleville on drums, John Richardson on lead guitar and vocals, Lonnie Knight on lead guitar and vocals, Denny Johnson on bass guitar and vocals.  Rehearsals and song writing began!

June-July 1980: Dave Marden was brought in on keyboards, sax, flute and vocals. Late June, Lonnie Knight left the band and was replaced by Jeff Christensen (Boday) on lead guitar and vocals.

September 1980: Jobs were coming in and recording was moving along.

February 1981: Because performing on stage gave the songs more excitement and a better feel than sitting in a recording studio the band decided to record Crow Live. Due to circumstances beyond their control this album was never released. Crow continued to tour throughout the Midwest including a seven state tour with April Wine (from Canada).

April 1981: Dave Marden leaves the band and Crow goes 5 piece

October 1981: Denny Johnson is replaced by Darryl Kolledge on Bass Guitar

December 1981: Final show was New Years Eve. Each band member decided to go their separate ways.

October 1982: Crow was encouraged to come up with an album and be featured at a K101 radio concert at the old Met Center in Bloomington Minnesota.  Dave Anthony, the band’s manager put up the money to finish the On The Run album that the band had worked on in 1981.  At this time Jeff Christensen was off touring with another band and Robby Belleville was battling cancer so the band had to replace them with Abe Booker on guitar, Mark Fisher on drums and Jim Potter on keyboards.  The show went well but did not keep the band together.
