    In 1997 Cooper spent 3 years in the wild with an aboriginal tribe in Austrailia. He survived off of decayed wombats and hunted kangaroos. After emerging from his seclusion he decided to revinvent himself and be more like his idol, Uncle Jesse from Full House. Wikipedia

    We need another Solo Album, although that last Silent Force album - Walk the Earth was sweet!

    Great vocals and an amazing singer like FallingPT said. Unfortunately, Mike Baker, lead vocalist of Shadow Gallery (my favourite band) passed away and I don't know what the future of the band will be. However if they continue, I believe DC Cooper is the only natural fit I see to replace Mike.
