Sometimes, rock and roll is a family affair. In fact, some of the biggest bands of all time were founded by or feature siblings.
Here’s a look at the 5 most iconic rock star siblings.
The Gallaghers remain notorious for their on-going feud. With Oasis, they sold over 70 million albums worldwide and are responsible for two of the most quintessential albums of the '90s with 'Definitely Maybe' and '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?' Of course, their bickering is nearly as legendary as their music. In the 2016 documentary 'Oasis: Supersonic,' the long history of the Gallaghers' in-fighting dates back to their childhood.
Ann and Nancy Wilson are two of the most talented musicians in rock history, regardless of their gender. Singer Ann joined Heart in 1971, while guitarist Nancy joined in 1973. The sisters would co-write some of rock's classic tunes including "Crazy On You," "Magic Man" and "Barracuda." Heart was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
The Davies Brothers have famously had a tense relationship for decades, but with The Kinks, they became rock icons thanks to hits like "You Really Got Me," "All Day and All of the Night," "Sunny Afternoon," "Lola" and countless others. Ray and Dave have talked about a reunion of sorts for many years, but no such reunion has yet to take place.
Eddie and Alex founded Van Halen in 1972. The band would go on to sell over 80 million albums worldwide. Both Eddie and Alex would go on to inspire generations of future guitarists and drummers. Van Halen has since disbanded following the untimely death of Eddie in 2020 who succumbed to cancer at age 65 after being first diagnosed in 2001.
Malcolm and Angus founded AC/DC in 1973, who became one of the most influential bands of all time. AC/DC has sold a staggering 200 million albums worldwide with 50 million of that figure being from their classic 1980 album 'Back In Black.' While Malcolm sadly died in November 2017 due to complications from dementia, AC/DC would reform after going on hiatus in 2016 and went on to release their 17th studio album, 'Power Up,' in November 2020 and served as a tribute to the late rhythm guitarist.
