Hagar Schon Aaronson Shrieve. This early 80's supergroup was led by Bay Area stalwarts Sammy Hagar and Neil Schon, of Journey. They released one album (which was recorded live, but mixed to sound like a studio project) and scored a moderate hit with their cover of "Whiter Shade of Pale."
HSAS takes top honors in our survey (which is sponsored by the good people at Mutual of Omaha). Their name is so blue-chip Park Avenue firm that when I bought their album, I half-expected to find a "cease and desist" letter where the vinyl should have been.
Emerson Lake & Palmer. Progressive-rock superstars, ELP recorded works by simple folk like Béla Bartók and Sergei Prokofiev. Their raison d'etre? Classical music just wasn't loud enough.
Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds. These west coast soft-rockers scored hits with "Don't Pull Your Love," and "Fallin' in Love".
Wilson Philllips. Scions of legendary El Lay rockers Brian Wilson and John Phillips, these California girls hit the charts in 1990 with "Hold On." Their name sounds like an old-line London law firm, the kind with mahogany walls and cigar stains on the ceiling.
Anderson Bruford Wakeman & Howe. These friends used to play in a band with a simple name (Yes), until they got together and formed a law firm. Er... rock band. Sadly, their music wasn't much more exciting than reading through a tall stack of property contracts.
Extra Credit: OK, peoples, who did I miss? Martin, Medeski & Wood? Nah, they're too jazzy to be on this list. C'mon, help a brother out!
