Cole also recorded a solo album, New Hovering Dog , in 1972 before accompanying musicians like Elton John or joining the bands Uriah Heep , Pink Floyd , The Verve and others in the 1970s.

Rick Wills, also active for Foreigner in later years , and John "Willie" Wilson played for David Gilmour on his first solo album in 1978.
