The band was formed in 1965, and its goal was always to be big in America. The band combined their own music into rock which was popular during that time. They first visited the US in 1979. After visiting the US, they started playing with a heavier sound. In 1985, they traveled to California to perform at Day On The Green.
The concert was a huge success. The most glorious song there was ‘Still Loving You’. It was originally released a year prior to the concert and chartered at number sixty-four in the US. That performance was sweaty and majestic, and even the voice was at its prime. It was one of their best shows till now.
