Group alumni include film composer Howard Shore, who composed music for the NBC-TV series Saturday Night Live and created scores for the films of David CRONENBERG as well as for a number of Hollywood productions (The Silence of the Lambs, Mrs. Doubtfire, Gangs of New York). Shore won an Academy Award in 2004 for the third of his bestselling Lord of the Rings soundtracks. Among other notable ex-members are vocalist Bob McBride, who had his own successful career as a solo artist until his death in 1998, and bass guitarist Terry Wilkins, later a sideman to many Canadian performers and a member of the group ROUGH TRADE.
