After a variety of other players, the band settled down to including Renato D’Angelo (bass), Pierluigi Calderoni (drums), Francesco Di Giacomo (vocals), and MARCELLO TODARO (guitar). Todaro left in 1973 to be replaced by Rodolfo Maltese. Over the years, lineups have changed further and included members of Premiata Forneria Marconi and Periferia del mondo.
