Blondie co-founder Chris Stein celebrates his birthday today (January 5), who along with Debbie Harry are one of rock’s best known (former) couples. Whether they made it last or romantically went their separate ways, here’s some of our favorite rock couples ever.
Chris Stein & Debbie Harry
Stein and Harry were together for nearly two decades but split in the early 90’s. They’ve managed, however, to maintain a professional relationship.
Between John and Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham and Nicks’ tryst with Mick Fleetwood, there’s no shortage of couples in Fleetwood Mac. Considering they made the quintessential cheating/breakup record in Rumours, it’s amazing they’re still together to this day.
The Mamas & the Papas
The iconic 60’s group was founded by then husband and wife John and Michelle Phillips. They would divorce in 1970, shortly after the band broke up.
John Lennon & Yoko Ono
Could there be a more iconic couple than John and Yoko?! No rock couple list would be complete without them.
Bruce Springsteen & Patti Scialfa
Springsteen and Scialfa have been one of rock’s most enduring marriages. They’ve been married since 1991 and have three children: Evan, Jessica and Samuel.
