Brian continued to write songs through 1970s and 1980s, releasing several solo albums. He also penned English lyrics to toplines for a couple of Indian pop music LPs during the mid 1980s. Brian once appeared as a TV extra performing his own song Saints and Sinners for a TV drama which required “musician plays in the background”.
Several of the songs Brian wrote with Terry in Paper Bubble were adapted for a musical in 2019 and staged at Severn Arts Theatre, Shrewsbury. Brian is today a published author.
