Known more for the antics of flamboyant front man Gallagher, than for their music, Taste toured extensively in Europe and was featured on the German rock show Rockpalast.  The released two albums and broke up when Gallagher decided to pursue a solo career.  

Gallagher's post Taste career was very successful and two of the other band members, John Wislson and Richard McCracken went on to form the band Stud.   Gallagher died of complications after a liver transplant.
