Which rock couples have the most gripping romantic history? Nominate here, and we'll tell their story in this week's top 10.

Rock music is about more than just stage antics and studio recording. Behind the facade, many rock legends have a loving partner - or, indeed, a fractured relationship. Either way, they're often the inspiration behind the artist's most emotional and gripping songs.

This week's Wednesday question is:

Who are the best rock couples ever?

You're welcome to pick couples where one of them isn't a rock star, like Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne or even where the partner is less famous like Johnny Cash and his wife June Carter.

Of course, couples where both artists have made a name in rock, like Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love or Josh Homme and Brody Dalle, are great too.

Think of it this way: which acts have the most interesting story to tell? We'll be writing up their history in a top 10 post this Friday.

Post one couple nomination per comment, and up vote others you agree with. Look out for the final top 10 to see if your nomination makes it to the final post.

    Amber Valentine and Edgar Livengood from Jucifer. Making awesome music together, touring constantly...
    Joe Perry of Aerosmith and his wife Billie. She got him through rehab, has stuck with him through good and bad, and he still seems giddy talking about her.
    Nobody mentions Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed? Also, John and Korey Cooper of Skillet
    Jack and Meg White ..... they broke but damm they knew how to rock the house with the White stripes ! Oh i forgot , Mick Jaggar and David Bowie
    Jim Morrison and Patricia Keneally. What is more badass than the wildest frontman in rock and roll and a psycho-bitch he married in a witchcraft ceremony?
    I was going to say Jagger and Bowie, but since I was beatne to the punch I will go serious and say: The 30 plus year relationship between Alice Cooper and Sheryl Goddard. Because that is a god damn rarity outside of the rock world and unheard of it in.
    The guys from Dream Theater never had a divorce. Ex-drummer Portnoy and his wife Marleen who used to be a guitarist in the all-female band Meanstreak, and two of the other members, guitarist Rena Sands and bassist Lisa Martens, are married to Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci and bassist John Myung, respectively.
    That's always impressed me. One band married another band. And they all stayed together!
    John and Yoko not winning this would be a crime. Whether you like Yoko or not doesn't really matter, they are the best rock couple. They basically invented the provocative rock couple.
