In 1990, he was drumming for his band in a high school talent contest when someone suggested he sing the Replacements song "Talent Show."

The Lemonheads are an indie/alternative/punk band, originally from Boston, Massachusetts, but now based in New York City. The primary (and only consistent) member is Evan Dando. While Dando's penchant for melody-driven tunes makes him a favorite amongst the indie community, his song structures display obvious punk and 80s-rock influences, especially on earlier albums, as well as a hint of country here and there, most noticeably on Dando's solo album, Baby I'm Bored.
Ohio born Chrissie Hynde moved to London in the 70's and formed the Pretenders with Martin Chambers, James Honeyman Scott, and Pete Farndon. Farndon and Scott did not live long enough to enjoy the fruits of their labor, both succuming to drug overdoses in the early eighties. Hynde carried on, after replacing the 2 rock casualties, and had a string of hits in the 80's and 90's. With their unique sound featuring beautifully rich, chorused guitars and Chamber's unique, edgy style of drumming, the Pretenders are still a strong musical force today.
