Tuesday Tunes: Surname band names of the rock era

Source: wallpapersafari.com

Rock bands whose name is based on a at least one band member’s surname are listed below. All are from the USA unless it is otherwise noted. If the band’s name includes a first name, it was not included. Same with bands who have the term “band” in their name. “The Steve Miller Band” is an example of both. As always, any additions, corrections, or suggestions is most welcome. Peace!
