Broken Vows

Album: Foul Deeds (2010)
  • Pegi Young has been married to Neil Young since 1978. She's also a singer/songwriter, but her first album didn't come until 2007, when their son Ben got older and Pegi turned over much of the responsibility for running the Bridge School, which they set up to teach special needs kids like Ben. Foul Deeds was her second album, and in our interview with Pegi Young, she explained that it was inspired by her parents divorce. Said Pegi: "I had this one piano song and I just had it for the longest time and was carrying it with me from city to city to city. It's one that's called 'Broken Vows' on my Foul Deeds record and I was touring with my husband, and so we always have a piano in the room. I was just playing it and playing it and playing it, and then finally in Denver it just sort of went ah! and it came through."

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
