Brian Doerner joined Saga in 2005, replacing Christian Simpson. Previously Doerner played with Helix.
Brian was a member of Helix from 1976 to 1980, and has played on many subsequent Helix recordings.
On the first Helix album "Breaking Loose" Brian Doerner was a stand-out on the song Billy Oxygen, and at that time he was only about 18 years old.
After Doerner left Helix in 1980, he went on to play with several other recording acts, including Refugee, Lee Aaron, and Ray Lyell.
Shortly after Brian Doerner's appearance on the "30th Anniversary Concert" stage in 2004, drummer Glen "Archie" Gamble departed to tour with Popjoy, fronted by Sara Smith, and Brian returned to the Helix drum throne.
