BARRY MANILOW

Barry Manilow

In terms of both record sales and career longevity, Barry Manilow is one of the most successful adult contemporary singers ever. That success hasn't necessarily translated to respect (or even ironic hipster appreciation) in most quarters; Manilow's music has been much maligned by critics and listeners alike, particularly the romantic ballads that made his...

BARRY WHITE

Barry White

Say the name Barry White and you'd be hard pressed to follow it with the name of any other recording artist with such a huge, cross-sectional following. He was at home appearing on Soul Train, guesting with a full band on The Today Show, and appearing in cartoon form in various episodes of The Simpsons. During the '70s, Dinah Shore devoted a full hour of her...

BASIA

Basia

BBMAK

Bbmak

Although often perceived as England's answer to the Backstreet Boys, O-Town, and other American pop groups, BBMak differentiated themselves by playing their own instruments and writing the bulk of their music. The trio was formed in 1996 by Mark Barry, Christian Burns, and Stephen McNally, all of whom initially met while playing with other bands in North West...

BEASTIE BOYS

Beastie Boys

As the first white rap group of any importance, the Beastie Boys received the scorn of critics and strident hip-hop musicians, both of whom accused them of cultural pirating, especially since they began as a hardcore punk group in 1981. But the Beasties weren't pirating -- instead, they treated rap as part of a post-punk musical underground, where the D.I.Y....

BEATLES

Beatles

So much has been said and written about the Beatles -- and their story is so mythic in its sweep -- that it's difficult to summarize their career without restating clichés that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans. To start with the obvious, they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations...

BEBE REXHA

Bebe Rexha

Music fans may still be getting familiar with Bebe Rexha’s name, but they’ve already grown to love her sound.

BEENIE MAN

Beenie Man

When the tiny baby boy echoed his first cry on August 22 in Waterhouse, Kingston Jamaica, it was no ordinary sound but a symbol of great things to come. A revolution was on the verge for the dancehall industry on that day when Moses Davis a.ka. Beenie Man was born. He is the youngest artiste to have ever entered the thriving dancehall business in the early...

BELINDA CARLISLE

Belinda Carlisle

Belinda Carlisle pursued a solo career after leaving the Go-Go's in 1984. As her solo career progressed, Carlisle removed any of the rough edges remaining in her style, transforming from a new wave rocker to a polished adult contemporary pop singer. The change was evident on her first album, 1986's Belinda. Featuring the number three hit single "Mad About You,"...

BELL & JAMES

Bell & James

Best-known for the easy rolling, '70s Southern soft rock classic "Let Your Love Flow," the Bellamy Brothers are the most successful duo in country music history, consistently climbing into the upper reaches of the Billboard country charts during the '80s. More than most acts of the late '70s and '80s, the Bellamys pushed the borders of country music, adding...

BEN E. KING

Ben E. King

From the groundbreaking orchestrated productions of the Drifters to his own solo hits, Ben E. King was the definition of R&B elegance. King's plaintive baritone had all the passion of gospel, but the settings in which it was displayed were tailored more for his honey smooth phrasing and crisp enunciation, proving for perhaps the first time that R&B could be...

BEN FOLDS

Ben Folds

Over the last 15 years, Ben Folds’ first-class melodic gifts, irony-laced lyrics, and punk-rock tendency to play piano as if it were a contact sport have earned the North Carolina native a legion of devoted fans of all ages. These people, quite simply, are going to go nuts for Way To Normal. The album, Folds’ third solo studio release, is dominated by the...

BEN HARPER

Ben Harper

Combining shuddering, groove-laden funky soul and folky handcrafted acoustics, singer/songwriter Ben Harper enjoyed cult status during the course of the '90s before gaining wider attention toward the decade's end. As a young artist, Harper combined elements of classic singer/songwriters, blues revivalists, Jimi Hendrix, and such '90s jam bands as Blues Traveler...
