Van Conner (bassist) and Mark Pickerel (drummer), later replaced
by Barrett Martin.

After the split, Mark Lanegan started a successful solo career and also
played/recorded with multiple artists (Queens Of The Stone Age, Isobel
Campbell, The Gutter Twins with Greg Dulli, Soulsavers). Unfortunately,
he passed away last year, on 22 February. Aged only 57.
In March 2020 Lanegan was infected with Covid-19, went into a coma,
he couldn’t walk for months, and got completely deaf. While recovering
he started to write a memoir called Devil In A Coma, out in December.
