Biography

The sax-heavy pop/rock band known as Quarterflash formed in early 1980, joining together two of Oregon's more popular acts: Seafood Mama, which contributed singer/saxophonist Rindy Ross and her guitarist husband Marv; and Pilot, which added guitarist Jack Charles, keyboardist Rick DiGiallonardo, bassist Rich Gooch, and drummer Brian David Willis. The band would release four albums, starting with its 1981 self-titled debut, which sold over two million copies and spawned two of the group's biggest songs, "Harden My Heart," which went to number three on the charts, and the Top 20 hit "Find Another Fool." Subsequent albums would not reach the blockbuster commercial success of their debut, but they continued to sell albums steadily throughout the mid-'80s. Another notable song was "Night Shift," which was the theme for the movie of the same name. They followed up their debut with 1983's Take Another Picture, which produced another Top 20 hit, "Take Me to Heart," as Quarterflash continued forward with their trademark rock sound. By Girl in the Wind in 1984, the band began to run out of clever hooks and issued just one more album, Back into Blue, in 1985. After recording an unreleased album in 1995, a modified version of the band anchored by the Rosses continued to perform live. ~ Stacia Proefrock
