The group had originally formed back in their schoolboy days at the all-boys Abingdon School under the name On a Friday. When school ended and the band went their separate ways to university, they kept in touch and played together on holidays and occasional weekends. After college, On a Friday reconvened in earnest in 1991 and began gigging and recording demos. After guitarist Jonny Greenwood put a demo in the hands of an EMI record exec while working in a local record shop, the band was signed to a rather staggering six-album contract (you certainly don't see that in the new millennium). But the band came out of the gates with a resounding thud when their Ep Drill failed to enter the U.K. Top 100 and, more than ever, they were in desperate need of a break.
4. Peter Criss (KISS): Reportedly it wasn't his drumming style, but rather his "Wilson Pickett-style" voice that gained Peter Criss entry into KISS as a founding member. Indeed, on such songs as "Black Diamond," "Hard Luck Woman" and, of course, "Beth," Criss stakes out vocal terrain that's as exemplary as his skills at the drum kit. His autobiographical 2007 solo album, One for All, showcases all aspects of his multi-faceted talent.
2. Don Henley (Eagles): Such Eagles hits as "Witchy Woman," "Hotel California" and "The Long Run" would possess an altogether different vibe were it not for Don Henley's distinctive voice. Following the Eagles' breakup in 1980, the veteran drummer staked out the most successful solo career of any of the former members of the band, scoring such monster hits as "Dirty Laundry," "Sunset Grill" and "The Boys of Summer." In 2008, Rolling Stone honored Henley with the #87 slot in the magazine's list of al-time greatest singers. more on this story
