Bacon sang lead on Mike Oldfield's 1987 album Islands which, in the U.S. version, featured the minor hit "Magic Touch", and was co-produced by Geoff Downes, who produced GTR. In 2002 another solo album, From the Banks of the River Irwell, was released, featuring some material composed by Downes previously performed by Asia during John Payne's tenure.

Bacon appeared as a contestant on ITV's talent show New Faces, hosted by Marti Caine with featured judges Chris Tarrant and Nina Myskow. Bacon reached the 1988 final and performed a version of "The Hunter", but did not win. No mention was made on the show of his previous GTR success.

Bacon subsequently left the music business and took ownership of a pub called The Crown in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, England. Max now owns and runs The Wheatsheaf pub in the small town of Egremont in West Cumbria.

Bacon returned to his former band, Bronz, to play at the Hard Rock Hell festival in Wales in November 2011.
