#4M Music Making Siblings
From the Von Trapp family to the Cowsills, The Osmonds, Jackson Five, The Bee Gees, and the Wilson sisters of Heart, and Tegan and Sara, it seems that families have been making music together since the beginning of time.
Today, with the help of Monday’s Music Moves Me (#4M), we are taking a look at a few musical groups with siblings. It’s the birthday of X-Mas Dolly’s brother today, so our theme is to celebrate siblings.
I tend to get carried away with the themes. I’m trying hard to not overindulge here. I wanted to share with you all some music from those that you may not be as aware of as siblings. Of course, in the playlist, I’ll include the more familiar groups.
Devo has not only one set of siblings, but two sets of siblings. Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh, and Gerald and Bob Casale.
Four sisters - Debbie, Joni, Kim and Kathy Sledge
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Brothers John and Tom Fogerty, along with Stu Cook and Doug Clifford
Kings of Leon
Brothers Caleb Followill, Nathan Followill and Jared Followill, with their cousin Matthew Followill
Brothers Dave and Ray Davies
Formed in 1981 by the Abbott brothers – drummer Vinnie Paul and guitarist Dimebag Darrell
Check out these and MORE in the playlist:
Notes of interest:
The Statler Brothers - only two brothers in this group, Don and Harold Reid. No one in the band was named Statler.
The Ramones - Each of the band members took on the last name of Ramone, but no one was related to each other.
Thompson Twins - Despite the name of the group, this group did not have any twins, nor any siblings. The band was named after the two bumbling detectives Thomson and Thompson in Hergé's comic strip The Adventures of Tintin.
Know of any siblings that I may have left out of the playlist? Let me know in the comments and I'll add them!
