So, does anybody know the whereabouts of all the former Cross members? I wonder what they're all up to now. Any info anyone?

Spike - Is doing a number of concerts each year with his SAS Band and playing keyboards at the Dominion in WWRY. Also probably still doing the odd guest keyboard slot with other artists.

Josh - seems to be involved in Queen production duties on such things as cosmos rocks album and live Queen DVDs.

Roger - is apparently currently working on his solo stuff and making the odd guest appearence at the WWRY musical. Plus recently did some work with Hannah Jane Fox (Original WWRY Scaramouche) on her forthcoming album.

Clayton - No idea

Peter - No Idea

Spike - secondary roles in Buffy the vampire Slayer, Angel and Smallville. Currently resting, but expect to be up and about come sundown.

Josh - recently began a new career as a crash test dummy. Only lasted one day. Now juggles cats for pennies in the London Underground.

Roger - is under the illusion that he's the drummer in a famous rock band. Also claims that he is being bullied by a giant poodle. Is undergoing therapy, but it's not looking good.

Clayton - is at this moment trying to set a world record for strangling the most monkeys in a 24-hour period. Check him out at: www.claytonistryingtosetaworldrecordforstranglingthemostmonkeysina24-hour period.com

Peter - Now lives under the sea, where he is hoping to start a bee-keeping business. Hive no idea if he will be successful.

Thanks for starting this thread, I wouldn't have known what he was doing, let alone that he was still recording.

I didn't know that about Peter Noone. Any ideas on what else he's done since the Cross?

Woman’s Hour was recorded at Cosford Mill (97-98) by Josh Macrae, during the “Draining Venus sessions” and features the same musicians (listed below)
The plan was to do a “band album” in contrast to the minimalist “Draining Venus” to expose a more “industry-friendly” collection of songs to woo prospective distributors and investors.
Smashing Records supported this by showcasing the band, a “one nightstand” in front of industry and fans it didn’t however have the desired outcome.
The gig was recorded “completely live” by Josh and Deano and became the appropriately titled LP “Dead at the Country Club” a debut and an obituary, a record of what was and might have been.

Hahahaha :D 

Doesn't this poodle claim that Who Wants to Live Forever is the "Absolute Greatest" song in the world, by any chance?
