BADFINGER

Badfinger

There are few bands in the annals of rock music as star-crossed in their history as Badfinger. Pegged as one of the most promising British groups of the late '60s and the one world-class talent ever signed to the Beatles' Apple Records label that remained with the label, Badfinger enjoyed the kind of success in England and America that most other bands could...

BANGLES

Bangles

Rock historians view the Bangles as one of the greatest all-female bands ever, lauding the L.A.-based quartet for its inventive incorporation of '60s folk rock, sunny SoCal harmonies and Beatles/Byrds/Beach Boys/Big Star godhead into a sound all its own - beguiling, frequently bittersweet, but always life-affirming; a canny merger of art and...

BANKS

Banks

Jillian Rose Banks, known simply as Banks (often stylized as BANKS), is an American singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, California. She releases music under Harvest Records, Good Years Recordings and IAMSOUND Records imprints of the major label Universal Music Group.

BAR KAYS

Bar Kays

Initially a funky instrumental soul combo on Stax/Volt, the Bar-Kays were nearly destroyed when most of the band perished in the same plane crash that claimed Otis Redding. Amazingly, the Bar-Kays not only regrouped but prospered, evolving into a popular funk ensemble over the course of the '70s. They continued to score hits on the R&B charts through much of...

BARBARA FAIRCHILD

Barbara Fairchild

BARBARA MANDRELL

Barbara Mandrell

Thanks to a string of hit singles and a popular television variety series, vocalist Barbara Mandrell was arguably the biggest female star in country music in the late '70s and early '80s. Born the oldest daughter into a musical family in Houston, TX, on Christmas Day, 1948, Mandrell was already reading music and playing accordion by the age of five. Just six...

BARBARA MASON

Barbara Mason

An interesting minor soul performer, Mason initially focused on songwriting when she entered the music business in her teens. As a performer, though, she had a huge hit in 1965 with her self-penned "Yes, I'm Ready" (number five pop, number two R&B), a fetching soul-pop confection that spotlighted her high, girlish vocals. One of the first examples of the sweet,...

BARBRA STREISAND

Barbra Streisand

Barbra Streisand's status as one of the most successful singers of her generation was remarkable not only because her popularity was achieved in the face of a dominant musical trend -- rock & roll -- which she did not follow, but also because she used her vocal skills as a mere stepping stone to other careers, as a stage and film actress and as a film director....

BARDEUX

Bardeux

Bardeux is a female dance-pop duo from Los Angeles. Original members were Stacy "Acacia" Smith and Jazz. Their album Bold as Love featured the Top 40 hit "When We Kiss." Jazz was replaced by Melanie Taylor in 1989. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

BARENAKED LADIES

Barenaked Ladies

Imagine a shrine for all great sayings, a Pop Psychology Hall of Fame if you will. On these special walls you’d find such stalwarts as “What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger,” “Tomorrow’s Another Day” and “Everything Happens For A Reason.” Right over there the “Light At The End of The Tunnel” stands next to “The Great Unknown.”...

BARRY DEVORZON & PERRY BOTKIN, JR.

Barry Devorzon & Perry Botkin, Jr.

Perry Botkin Jr. must have liked going to work with his father. Perry Botkin was a guitarist and banjo player who became heavily involved in television and film background music in the mid-'40s. His son followed his footsteps right into the same recording studios, becoming involved for the most part with a who's who of easy listening talent. His sessions date...
