Ongoing History Daily: Family affairs

The topic makes for a good playlist: bands that feature at least three members from the same family.

  1. Kings of Leon feature the three Followill brothers and their cousin.
  2. AJR is three brothers: Adam, Jack, and Ryan Met.
  3. Going back to INXS, Andrew, Jon, and Tim Farriss are all brothers.
  4. Devo had two sets of brothers back in the day: Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh and Gerald and Bob Casale.
  5. The Interrupters have Aimee Interrupter out front, but the band consists of Kevin, Justin, and Jesse Biovana.
  6. The Shaggs, the wonderfully awful cult band from the late 60s featured the four Wiggin sisters.
  7. Three-quarters of Greta Van Fleet come from the same family: Josh, Jake, and Sam Kiszka.
  8. British band The Cribs have Ryan, Gary, and Ross Jarman.
  9. And I’ll throw Haim in there: Este, Daniele and Alana Haim.
