Due to a combination of bad luck and ferocious weather, 34 people perish and countless lives are ruined. By now, Mark Ryan's successes have created a huge stir in the dive community. He has plenty of volunteers to help in the Glenelg search, but the elusive shipwreck is unwilling to be found. Researcher Peter Taylor throws away the rule book and relies on instinct.

In the latter half of the '90s, Phil Collins' career hit a bit of a sales slump, and instead of shamelessly chasing after another number one single, he decided to change pace and try something different. Returning to the drums, he assembled the Phil Collins Big Band, reviving the sound of such idols as Buddy Rich and Sonny Payne, but largely sticking with his original material. After a brief European tour in 1996 (which happened to feature Quincy Jones as conductor and Tony Bennett as vocalist), he created a new version of the band featuring several accomplished jazz and studio musicians in support – notably alto saxophonist Gerald Albright, but also guitarist Daryl Stuermer, tenor saxophonist James Carter, and pianists George Duke and Brad Cole, among many others, in varying roles.
