His reputation grew; in 1967 he and the other members of Mandala released "Opportunity." A year later they released their first album, "Soul Crusade." He released his solo album, "Dominic Troiano," in 1972; it would be the first of six solo productions. Troiano was inducted into the Canadian Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame 1996.
After a ten-year battle with the disease, he died of prostate cancer on May 25, 2005 in Toronto.
