So Pit, which famous musicians come from your hometown?

Derby:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Cooper_(drummer) - Therapy?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Franklin_(musician) - played with Jimmy Page
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucy_Ward_(musician) - Folk artist
Jason Bowld - Drummer for Pitchshifter

Nottingham:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Fletcher_(musician) - Duran Duran
JS Clayden - Pitchshifter Vocalist
Mark Clayden - Pitchshifter Bassist
Karl Middleton - Earthtone9 Vocalist

I guess Eva Spence (Vocalist - Rolo Tomassi) comes here as well now, as she recently relocated to Nottingham

If we're going to go broader and say "Manchester" then the answer is Oceansize.


The sole redeeming feature of Manchester is that it spawned Oceansize

I'm not saying not to trust the internet, but there's an alarming discrepancy between the number of iPads I've won & the number of iPads I own.

As far as I know, the only one I know of is the singer from the Hoosiers lives here.

I once played Battlefield 2 with a studio drummer who did work for Duran Duran

Some dudes did a cover of Somebody that i used to know on one guitar that got like 150 million views from here. A really bad pre-teen core band that I've never heard a song by and Finger Eleven (which is just boring radio rock that I used to hear in supermarkets all the time).

So, nothing really interesting. Sleepy little suburb of 150,000 so it isn't all that surprising.
#20
Finger Eleven did Kane from WWE's old theme. That's as much as I know about them.

They were remotely interesting years and years ago when they were called the Rainbow Butt Monkeys or something, my brother jammed with them a few times. There isn't really anything remarkable, they just made moderately successful radio music. Sort of based themselves off what would get them more success. But still probably the biggest band from here.
#23
From my hometown area I can't think of anything famous musicians, but there's a cool upcoming band called The Heavy Jets who I think after they get some touring done might pick up a decent following and hopefully record their first album.

From the city as a whole though the only musicians I can think of are Dire Straits and Venom.
#24
Me.
My dad.

Srs answer: Simple Plan, Avril Lavigne, 3 Days Grace, Celine Dion.

Yeeeaaah.
You are now using UG Black.

Absolutely no one. And when I say absolutely no one I mean absolutely no one. Period.

I live in the land where down tuned acoustic with a cheap microphone duct taped to the side is a "bass," and if you can successfully mount two computer microphones in the center of the room can record your band, you are a recording "engineer."

The music "scene" where I live is practically a joke.

I actually really like Finger Eleven. I would suggest checking out their self titled album, which is their 3rd album. It has some really cool tracks.
#32
oh i guess we have a couple washed up guys that used to do a bunch of gigs for some pretty big casinos and they got a decent amount of money out of it, but no one really memorable
#33
Billy Bragg lives just up the road from me
Used to be in his son's band but that didn't work out. He wanted to be his dad too much.
PJ Harvey is from here.
There's a guy called Mutter Slater who's band headlined the very first glastonbury. I let him use my guitar once. But he was thrashing about like hell on it. So I don't let him use it anymore.
#36
Dutch Uncles, Delphic and Egyptian Hip Hop are all from my town and went to my school. Not too bad for a place with only 20,000 people, really.
I still have a vivid memory of Hewitt (EHH's frontman) taking a pizza one of my friends had made off him and chasing him around the school throwing it at him. Was pretty funny, but yeah, he's a bit of a douche…
#37
Ronnie James Dio lived in my town and went to the same high school I did.

To a lesser famous extent, The Rods (old classic hard rock band where the frontman is Dio's cousin) are from my town and still live there today.
