Gantry later claimed that Mick Fleetwood of the original band was in on the plan to tour with a bogus band, which has been denied by Fleetwood. In 1975 Gantry and other musicians from the bogus band formed Stretch and wrote their hit "Why did you do it" in a direct comment on Mick Fleetwoods denial of taking part in the bogus band tour.
