Claude Schnell's first band, Magic evolved to Rough Cutt and changed various members at the same time. Rough Cutt of that time was said to be somewhat similar in style with Journey and Toto.
Goldie joined the band right after Claude Schnell left them. They played in various clubs around Los Angeles, USA area. They got in touch with Ronnie James Dio as he produced some demos for them at the time Craig Goldie joined the band and brought them in contact with Warner Bros records. Wendy Dio became the manager for the band around the time Ronnie introduced the band to Warner Bros. They supposedly got a record deal in January 1984, just when Goldie left the band.
