Brother Cane[edit]

Main article: Brother Cane

Brother Cane formed in Birmingham, Alabama in the early 90's with singer/guitarist Damon Johnson and bassist Glenn Maxey. Johnson and Maxey were later joined by drummer Scott Collier and Glick. Shortly after the band released their self-titled debut album in 1990, Maxey left the band. Glick then switched back to bass guitar (his original instrument) and the band added another guitarist, David Anderson. The band then released two more albums: Seeds (1995) and Wishpool (1998). Brother Cane was dropped from their label (Virgin) during the Wishpool tour. The group finished up the tour on their own. They disbanded shortly after.

Slave to the System[edit]

Slave to the System is an American alternative hard rock supergroup, formed in 2000 by Brother Cane and Queensrÿche band members. Guitarist Kelly Gray had worked with Brother Cane on a project, and suggested to Johnson and Glick that they should get in touch with Queensrÿche drummer Scott Rockenfield.[2] The band had a great songwriting chemistry, causing them to write, record and mix their self-titled album in just three weeks' time.[3] The album was independently released by the band in 2002, and it was re-released by Spitfire Records in 2006.[4] The band has performed shows in support of both releases,[5] and have been on hiatus since then.
