He continued to be a member until the band's breakup in 1997, and reunited with the rest of the group in 2002. In 2002, he released a solo album, "Tunes Young People Will Enjoy." In 2004, Valenzuela collaborated with Canadian singer-songwriter Craig Northey on the album Northey Valenzuela, and they co-wrote and performed "Not A Lot Goin' On", the theme song to the Canadian sitcom Corner Gas.
