Alistair Croakley's son Andrew maintains his website: Alistair not only played guitar for Hotline but also produced some of their finest work and his studio continues to churn out hits and some of the finest jingles (Vodacom's Sieze The Moment).

Andrew contributed this:
My Dad is still very much in the music business. He is also still a great guitarist (in my opinion at least). He has run his own studio for many years now and trades under the name Hitman Music. He does a lot of work for the advertising industry and also produces and collaborates on various albums. After Hotline, he played with Stimela, Vinny and the Viscounts, The Rock Rebels and most recently plays with The Vipers. This is not a complete list though - it is all that I can remember. He's so busy that I can't even keep track of his work. He plays in the Strictly Come Dancing band every year, so you can see him on the reruns (front right) - this is one of his fun gigs. He was also involved in the Starfish Foundation album and the Spirit of the Great Heart remake. You can see/hear some of his jingles at the Hitman Music site.

Penny (PJ) is still also very active in music. There's a lot of info available about her on Google (I checked a while back) as she still has such a high profile in the S.A. music business. She's the ambassador for many charity organisations. Unfortunately, I missed an opportunity to see her last December when she was down in Durban visiting her family.

George (van Dyk) emigrated with his family to England and then to the U.S.A., where he lives now. I have no idea what he does for a living now - but I understand that he is still involved in music in some way or another.

Bones (Bretell) is also still active in music in S.A. He also has his own music production business - Mathambo Music, if I recall correctly. So he also does production, jingles, corporate music, etc.

Patrick (van Resburg) is apparently a game ranger in Northern KZN (!). Quite a change from the music business.

Useless info - There was a reunion of the Hotline members a few weeks ago in Johannesburg - for the first time in many years.
