Bay City Union formed in Brisbane in March 1966 and were one of Australia’s first traditional Chicago blues bands.
The Bay City Union broke up in May 1968. Taylor joined the Wild Cherries in October 1968, but left the following month. During 1969 and 1970, he played with progressive heavy rock / blues bands Horse and Genesis (not the UK prog band of the same name).
Glenn Wheatley played bass in the Masters Apprentices and eventually became a highly successful manager and promoter, managing the Little River Band and John Farnham amongst others. In 2007, Wheatley was sentenced to 15 months in prison when he was found guilty of channelling more than $650,000 through tax fraud schemes.
