A collection of magazines A magazine is a periodical publication containing a variety of articles, generally financed by advertising and/or purchase by readers. ... Q is a music and entertainment magazinepublished monthly in the United Kingdom. ...

The contents of the list actually belies its title, as several of the 'bands' listed are not actually bands or groups but solo artists and duos.

Unless one has already begun working through the list, it is now impossible to see them all, as some of the groups, such as Orbital have since disbanded. Orbital was an English techno duo formed in 1989, consisting of brothers Paul (born 19 May 1968) and Phil Hartnoll (born 9 January 1964). ...

THE WHO : Encyclopedia Entry (7742 words)
Townshend was at the centre of the band's tensions, as he strove to write challenging and thoughtful music, while Daltrey preferred energetic and macho material (Daltrey would occasionally refuse to sing a Townshend composition and Townshend would thus sing it himself), while Moon was a fan of American surf music.
The band's appearance at The Concert for New York City in October, 2001, was the most fervently cheered of any act by the audience of New York police officers and firefighters.
The band was arrested for this on at least one occasion, in Montreal, and were for many years banned from the Holiday Inn hotel chain.
