Artist Biography by

The group Conspiracy formed in Toronto, Canada, in 1974. Artists were pulled from two former groups to merge into one. Members of the new fusion included trumpeters Gary Greensword and Alex "Big Al" Glover, bassists Ron Cameron and Mike Heath, guitarist Ricky Voigt, trombonists Brian McKay and Doug "Bummy" Jackson, drummer Albi Koteles, and keyboardist Stevie Beach. Many of the guys shared in the vocal duties. Some of the members listed above stayed with Conspiracy throughout their short three years of life, others joined later, replacing defectors.

The band traveled across Canada and even into the United States. In 1976, Conspiracy recorded two singles: "Night Chaser" and "Watcha Gonna Do When the Rain Starts Fallin'." Night Chaser was also the title of the one and only album the group completed. All were released under the Capitol Records label. None drew much positive press or attention. Conspiracy's members went their separate ways in 1977, most leaving the music business behind. Sadly, Brian McKay died long before old age settled over him.
