Music Groups - Saga

Saga is a progressive rock quintet, formed in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Bassist-keyboardist Jim Crichton (born February 26, 1953) and Welsh-born vocalist Michael Sadler (born July 5, 1954) have been the principal songwriters for Saga. Ian Crichton (born August 3, 1956) is the band's guitarist; apart from his work with Saga, he has recorded several solo albums as well as sessions with Asia. The band's keyboardist, Jim "Daryl" Gilmour (born February 25, 1958), replaced Greg Chadd in 1980 (Chadd replaced original member Peter Rochon--who left the band to become a full-time music equipment company executive--after the first album). After the 2003 Marathon tour, Steve Negus (b. February 19, 1952) announced his retirement as Saga's original drummer. Christian Simpson, a Canadian-American, replaced Negus for 2004's Network album, until sidelined by a neurological condition that affected his drumming. In late 2005, former Helix member Brian Doerner became Saga's third drummer in as many years. Doerner suffered a heart attack in 2007 and was replaced by Chris Sutherland ( of the Kim Mitchell Band ) for the 10,000 Days Tour and Contact DVD. Lead singer Michael Sadler left Saga for family reasons at the end of the 2007 tour. Rob Moratti replaced Sadler in April 2008, after an Internet talent search, spanning Europe and both Americas, failed to yield a potential lead vocalist. Brian Doerner completed tracks for the band's 2009 release but will once again, be replaced by Chris Sutherland due to health reasons.

1 Whoever was supposed to promote this band and their albums did such a terrible job. How "Wind Him Up" never took off is beyong me. "Heads or Tails" was another record that had some cool songs and videos that were played in MTV's power rotation briefly then sank without a trace. I don't think they've ever matched the success of "On The Loose". That said, they apparently have soldiered on for decades, with Michael Sadler leaving in the late 2000s. Why would they keep going without the undeniable voice of the band when they've had one hit ever and that was decades ago? People say the Stones should hang it up. Saga is long past that point. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 4:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 'On the Loose' was had some of the most inventive lyrics and instrumentals (and the video was a good homage to "Bonnie and Clye"). I've often wondered why this band didn't become more famous and lasting! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 18, 2009, 11:09 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
