The group’s lineup changed numerous times throughout their career, with Davies being the only constant member throughout its history. Other longtime members included bassist Dougie Thomson, drummer Bob Siebenberg and saxophonist John Helliwell. The band were initially a prog-rock group, but starting with their third album, Crime of the Century , they began moving towards a more pop-oriented sound. They reached their commercial peak with 1979’s Breakfast in America, which yielded the international top 10 singles “The Logical Song”, “Breakfast in America”, “Goodbye Stranger”, and “Take the Long Way Home”. Their other top 40 hits included “Dreamer” , “Give a Little Bit” , and “It’s Raining Again” . In 1983, Hodgson left the group to pursue a solo career.

They attained significant popularity in North America, Europe, South Africa, and Australia.
