The most successful of the Seattle grunge outfits (along with Nirvana), Eddie, Stone, Mike and Jeff are also one of the few that still remain. Formed from the ashes of Mother Love Bone, PJ's mixture of 70s sleazy retro-rock, bluesy folk-metal and upbeat guitar anthems has won them a legion of loyal fans worldwide. Collaborations with Neil Young and Soundgarden as well as a healthy contempt for organisations like MTV haven't hurt either. And live, Eddie has the voice of an angel.

Few bands since the turn of the 21st century have been so influential and illustrious as The Strokes, a group whose 2001 debut album Is This It still remains one of music’s most celebrated long players – featuring at the top of countless publications’ lists of best albums of all time. The group’s subsequent four LPs (Room On Fire, First Impressions Of Earth, Angles, Comedown Machine) and headline shows across the globe has seen their profile continue to rise – also buoyed by their respective individual projects and collaborations – with lead singer Julian Casablancas even linking up with French electronic pioneers Daft Punk on their UK #1 album, Random Access Memories.
