43 Brothers In Bands

INXS Brothers In BandsWatching a TV mini-series about INXS was the impetus behind this list: brothers in bands. I’ve tried to keep in very much about bands rather than singing duos so some instrumental skill from one of the siblings was important. Interestingly there are five sets of Australian brothers in the selection, but sadly no room for the most famous brothers of all – The Ramones – who, of course, weren’t actually related. As always, please let me know about any I’ve missed.
