Adam and the Ants was a new wave band during the late 1970s and early 1980s. It was one of the bands at the time that marked the transition from the ’70s punk rock era to the new-wave post punk-music era. Although the band started off with a punk-influenced sound, it soon moved on to New Wave motivated by new sources such as the drum-heavy “Burundi Beat” heard on “Dog Eat Dog”.
Elton John was born on March 25, 1947, as Reginald Kenneth Dwight. When he was 3 years old he sat at the piano in front of his family and played The Skater's Waltz by ear. His live performances started in 1962, and a year later members of his band reformed as Bluesology.
