It is with great sadness that we share the passing of
Bill Hathaway, former member of BOE.
Back On Earth originated sometime around 1978. The original lineup included Eric, Smitty, Mike, Steve Butler (lead vocals, guitar) and Jerry Garn (bass, vocals).
Mike and Steve left to pursue their music careers and BOE replaced them with a husband and wife team, Kyle and Randy Robbins. Robbie Crain also had a short stint with the band.
Over the years, the bass player has changed and the band has brought in Don Mossman, Bill Hathaway, Burton Stahl and Jim Schwan. Don Mossman is now back.
The band has managed to remain together and continue to play good, fun classic rock music!
