– Formed in 1982, folded in 1987
– Prowler played a number of good gigs during their active years with professional light shows and pyrotechnics. Their best was probably when they supported Bernie Marsden
– During the early days of the band, Guitarist Chris Vye released a 5 track instrumental demo tape under the name ‘Wild One’. Towards the end of the 1980s he joined a rather interesting melodic Hard Rock/AOR band called ‘Bad Reputation’ who, unfortunately, never released anything.
