*This outstanding band was formed in 1970 with a great lead singer and primary songwriter. 5 years later he had to leave the band due to illness...enter a new lead singer who took them in new directions, but with solid hits as well. The band disbanded in 1982, but reformed in 1987. Name the band, the first and second lead singers...
*This great artist was (and is) the guitarist and primary songwriter for this band from 1964 to 1982. Truly known for his conceptual works for the band, he made his first tentative solo album in 1972. But we'll go to his 1985 solo album for this evening's track. Name the artist and the band...
*With this 1968 album, this band apparently had discovered drugs and mysticism as a basis for songwriting and came up with compelling psychedelic-era concerns. They kind of dumped the orchestra for this album in favor of a Mellotron while the rest of the band joined in with flutes, sitar, tablas and cellos. This collection of songs is a rather close cousin to The Beatles' records of the same era. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the album...
*We'll play a ballad by this great band from 1874 that was the first of three highly successful to have been gleaned from this band's 3rd consecutive chart topping album...they just didn't release 3 albums in 3 years, but each of them were #1 albums. (Remarkable) The song is about a young man discovering himself as a person. The entire album saw the band embracing a decidedly more mellow musical direction. Name the band and extra credit for the song name
