ABOUT THE ARTIST
Seminal 80’s pomp-pop band "The Rest Is History" managed to bankrupt several record labels and management companies with their outlandish lifestyles and recording techniques. Never releasing any finished recordings the band broke up in 1986. Led Zeppelin hair-artist and vocalist, Robert Plant, recorded two of their songs (Heaven Knows and Upside Down).
Currently Phillip Johnstone resides in his country manor and often patronizes the arts.
The whereabouts of David Barratt is unknown.
