Found an demo w/ some live tracks.. Good stuff..
In the mid seventies, Pinnick formed a band called Servant with
keyboardist Matt Spransy. They were described as a progressive Art Rock
type of band along the lines of Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. The
band played all over the midwest and even put together a demo of
original songs. Oddly enough, there was a band from Canada that also
called themselves Servant who had actually scored a recording contract.
Spransy ended up joining the Canadian version of Servant in the late
seventies, and that band recorded a song that he and Pinnick had written
together called “I’m Gonna Live”. It appears on their 1981 album
Pinnick was also part of Alpha as well as his own “Doug Pinnick Band” shortly after Spransy joined the Canadian Servant.
In 1979, Pinnick was invited to join a band that was forming in
Springfield, MO. with singer Greg X. Volz of Petra fame. He accepted the
offer and re-located, only to have the band dissolve within a month of
his arrival. He was soon offered a spot in guitarist Phil Keaggy’s
touring band, along with the drummer from the failed Volz project, Jerry
Gaskill. Pinnick has a co-writing credit on the track “Just A Moment
Away” from Keaggy’s 1980 album Ph’lip Side. Pinnick toured with Keaggy
for about a year before returning to Springfield and set about looking
for a new musical project.
