The Easter Island story began in 1973. Mark Miceli (guitar and vocals) was the founding father of the project. To fill out the lineup, he enlisted Jon Lewis (bass), Don Harris (vocals and various other instruments), and Alexander Alexander (drums). Soon they added Ray Vogel on keys. Early on, Alexander was replaced with Lucky Carmean. The group went through quite a few more lineup changes before releasing their first album in 1980. That album was simply titled Easter Island. By 1981, the group had become a trio comprised of Bob Chapman (drums), Park Crain (bass), and Miceli. Easter Island split up in 1982, but that was not the end of the story. The group came back together in 1997, this time in the form of Miceli, Chapman, and Richard Streander. ~ Gary Hill, Rovi
