The tours included 52 cities. TRILLION opened for or shared the bill with Heart, Styx, TOTO, Ian Hunter, Jeff Beck, The Starship, Rick Derringer and many other great acts. Since the 80's break up the band members went in different directions doing many different projects and on different labels. In 2007, 3 of the original members of TRILLION, Bill, Thom and Frank, felt that the band's legacy had been cut short far before exploring its full potential, and that there was much more uniquely compelling music to come from this combination of slightly eccentric and adventerous players!
Thom Griffin, Frank Barbalace, and Bill Wilkins recruited CJ Vanston on keyboards to begin collaborating on a couple of the new tunes. CJ has currently performed on both Golden Sun Beyond and In My Blood
Pat Leonard has also played on Golden Sun Beyond which has made the project that much more unique and a first for these two great musicians playing on the same tune together.
Bryan Mitchell - producer / engineer at Medical Records Studio, Chicago has made it possible for us to produce this new music. We dedicate these works to Bryan and his family.
The new song selections, Golden Sun Beyond , In My Blood are 6 minute long pieces that evolved within the studio retaining the originality of TRILLION's sound and style with an updated approach and execution. Adding to the Trillion 3 Project is bassist Dave LaRue from the Dixie Dregs.
