The McCoys Rick Derringer It's a toss-up here. The McCoys had a huge hit in 1965 with "Hang On Sloopy," which is now the official Ohio state rock song. After this, he found success with Johnny and Edgar Winter, and with his solo hit "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo." He is also noted for being "Weird Al" Yankovic's producer in the 80's. - Martha Hankins
Metallica Dave Mustaine Dave has been the frontman and guitarist for Megadeth for the last 30 years or so. - GlamRockNinjaLord
Moist David Usher Although David hasn't released any new material in quite some time I think he's as good a solo artist as he was when he was fronting Moist. - Celeste
The Monkees Mike Nesmith After The Monkees broke-up, Nesmith's song "Different Drum" performed by Linda Ronstadt went into the Top-40. Then Nesmith had another Top-40 hit which he performed himself named "Joanne". And in the 80's he formed a show which would eventually become MTV. - Paul Warren
