Subsequently the band had a few smaller successes, amongst others with the Egan penned song “Star”, but stagnating sales figures and artistic differences finally led to the band’s break-up in 1975. Egan eventually recorded his solo debut album Back On The Road, but this did not occur until 1979 as he and Rafferty were contractually obliged not to release any recordings for three years.
In 1978 Rafferty had a worldwide hit with “Baker Street” and the following year Egan registered a minor hit with his first single release, also named “Back On The Road”. The same year Egan released a second single; “Out Of Nowhere”.
1981 saw the release of his second album Map, which was not a critical or commercial success. Egan disappeared from the music industry and has not released any new recordings.
As of 2005, Egan lives in Renfrewshire and runs a publishing company from his home.
