-Gary Wilson tells what he remembers of J.C. Rose in the book //God's Not Dead (And Neither Are We)//. As of 1979, Jim Nicolson and [[Ojo|Joe Taylor]] were both in the band, and they had a tape that Wilson liked.  They were eventually able to convinced Wilson to join on drums. About 4-6 weeks after he joined, the band split up. Nicolson and Taylor went on to form [[Undercover]].+J.C. Rose was described by John J. Thompson as “edgier than Larry Norman and Love Song.” By 1979, J.C. Rose was Jim Nicolson, [[Ojo|Joe Taylor]], and Dave Hackbarth. J.C. Rose was also noted as having a demo tape, but it is unknown if [[Boaz]] ever recorded.

 +Jim Nicolson, [[Ojo|Joe Taylor]], Danny Pavlis (drums), and [[Ric Alba]] (bass) started [[Undercover]]. [[Undercover]] started rehearsing in a greenhouse owned by Danny’s parents. Chris Wimber and Ray Hersom formed [[The Lifesavors]]. 
 + 
 +[[Ric Alba]] had this to say about the two bands: 
 + 
 +>"“I played keys in [[Boaz]] starting in 1978. I met them when my drummer-since-childhood Frank Pipitone auditioned and joined J.C. Rose. Frank and I had 'got saved' at a hippie bible study group at the home of Ross Mann, and we had a hippy folk trio with Ross that broke up when Frank joined J.C. Rose. [[Ojo]] had a friend, Chris Wimber, with a band that needed a singer and keyboard player, so Ross and I joined up and there was [[Boaz]]. 
 +
 +>"Chris’ dad being John Wimber, we found ourselves opening for Lonnie Frisbee a number of times. Then we got some local notoriety for going, (gasp) “New Wave” when I wrote the song, “Francine” in 1979. This was the only [[Boaz]] song to outlive the big switcheroo of personnel when J.C. Rose and [[Boaz]] became [[Undercover]] and [[The Lifesavors]]. 
 +
 +>"I had secretly idolized Taylor and Nicholson for their prog-rock abilities, as I was becoming a huge fan of Yes and Chris Squire at the time. I would have muscled my way into a band with them sooner but J.C. Rose’s bassist, Jerry Davis, had become a good friend of mine and I respected that. Jerry became John’s bassist for the Vineyard worship team, which lasted many years after that.
