The success of the album, Ce La Vie, which, in 1970, was the embodiment of the desires of the youth of the day, became almost overshadowed by the politics within the band. Robert Martino left the band to begin his own projects and was replaced. The band would go on to record other albums from 1970 to 1984.
During the years when Les Difficiles de Petion-Ville's members were not playing together, they all kept busy working within the realms of the music industry. Robert Martino had work with other acts such as Top Vice, Gypsies, and Misty Jean. He also worked with Reynold Nader 'Sinsin', Fabrice Rouzier and Jean-Louis Olson among others to revive Scorpio. Even outside of actually performing, the link with music remained. Lead vocalist, Henry Celestin kept busy working sound and lights for events.
