Mike Deacon took over from Hinkley on keyboards and Keef Hartley from Isidore on drums. During recording of their second album, Rock'n Roll Gypsies, also released in 1972, John Woods took over from Hartley. Recording of their third and final album Six Star General released in 1973, saw Pete Gavin taking over on drums, only to be replaced in turn by Rob Tait. The band dissolved at the end of 1973, or early 1974.
Although Vinegar Joe never achieved significant record sales, they received considerable press coverage and toured extensively, playing numerous sell-out concerts, especially on the British university circuit.
Subsequently, Brooks and Palmer went on to enjoy success as solo musicians. Pete Gage became a record producer working with a range of successful musicians like Joan Armatrading and specialising in upcoming rockability and punk bands such as Restless, King Kurt and others." / WIKIPEDIA
