Bio / info
Illusion was formed by the four surviving original members of Renaissance (Jim McCarty, John Hawken, Jane Relf, and Louis Cennamo) in 1976, adding two additional musicians, guitarist John Knightsbridge and drummer Eddie McNeil. By that time Renaissance had achieved considerable success with an entirely different lineup so the original name was no longer available. The name "Illusion" came from the title of Renaissance's second album, the last one to feature these four musicians.
