What Happened to the Sons of Thunder?

In 1972, the Sons of Thunder were a teenage, interracial gospel group that toured with the Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, and Dorothy Norwood as part of the Stones’ STP Tour.  Two years later, Word Records was interested in recording the group, but by 1975, the Sons of Thunder was no more.

What happened?

Member Roger Wood wants to answer that question via a retrospective DVD and television series.
