*In 2013, after a 16 year absence, this band was finally reuniting from the classic lineup that produced one of, if not their best, 1987 album. The problem? One member, despite public affirmations that she was on board, bailed to pursue her solo career. Two other members who had written and readied songs for the band project, decided to record them anyway. Name the band and extra credit for the artist who bailed and the two who went forward...
*This British band's singer/guitarist wrote this song when he was a teenager, but didn't record it until much later, introducing it to the rest of the band 5 years after writing it. The track has taken on a life of its own with perhaps even more relevance today. The song basically says...just show you care. Whenever the band played it in concerts, they loved how the audience reacted with unifying hugs and singing along. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*This artist was perhaps better known for his exits from a couple of bands than his presence with them. He quit one band (in 1969) shortly before the release of their first album as he was not included in the final mix playback sessions. He lasted 6 years with his next band prior to another acrimonious departure. Name the artist and extra credit for the names of the two bands...
