In 1989 Gray was lured back into rejoining The Damned, ostensibly for a one-off UK / US / Japanese reunion tour. For the next eight years these became an annual event, with both Gray and Captain Sensible touring and recording with their own band in-between other commitments, with Gray also reforming Eddie & the Hot Rods for one album, Gasolene Days, for which he contributed the songwriting, and supported the album with several tours in the UK and Germany.
Gray was heavily involved with Community Music Wales for a number of years, a charity aimed at nurturing and helping young bands based in Cardiff, until severe tinnitus and hyperacusis precluded continuation with any musical activities. In 2005 he took up the post of Regional Officer, Wales & Southwest England for the British Musicians Union. He occasionally guests with The Damned on stage when they appear in the Welsh city.
