This US pomp-rock quintet was formed in 1981 by ex-Foreigner duo Al Greenwood (b. NY, USA; keyboards) and Edward Gagliardi (b. 13 Feb 1952, NY, USA; bass). Enlisting the providers of John Blanco (vocals), John Digaudio (electric guitar) and Billy Milne (drums), they agreed upon to EMI Information the following season. They debuted using a self-titled record, made by Neil Kernon (of Dokken and Michael Bolton popularity). This highlighted some upfront, punchy electric guitar function amid the advanced, keyboard-dominated agreements. On Behind Foe Lines, they truly became just a little self-indulgent, employing a Russian man tone of voice choir on many tracks. The record flopped and with developing legal and contractual complications, Spys disintegrated in 1983. Greenwood continued to utilize Joe Lynn Turner and afterwards N.Con.C.
