Where i live in LA, back in the day, Van Halen did concerts at the various high schools, when they were like 18 and 19, my dad saw them perform when he was going to school.

Whats the most famous band to come out of your town?

A couple of folk musicians live around here according to wikipedia ^.-

Ozzy Osbourne was born a couple of miles away.

Judas Priest also from Birmingham (and Walsall) - I live about halfway between the two.

No one big.
