      Bio

      While the B-52s certainly wouldn't be as popular and successful as they are with singers Cindy Wilson, Kate Pierson, and drummer Keith Strickland, it's Fred Schneider's unique voice that makes the music of this American rock band unmistakeable. Their timeless songs have become the perfect accompaniment to any party or good time, and their tour dates are themselves celebrations. While their recording careers have slowed in recent years, The B-52s still play several live shows a year.

      The B-52s formed after the individual members shared a Flaming Volcano drink at a Chinese restaurant. They soon developed a retro style complete with beehive hairdos for the ladies and lounge singer apparel for the men. The B-52s also developed a signature sound that combined dance music and surf rock that created a sort of upbeat new wave sound. This sound first appeared on their hit single, "Rock Lobster", which led to tour dates at underground clubs in New York and London. The B-52s' debut eponymous album was a hit, becoming praised by critics and even garnering kind words from John Lennon before his death. Even after the death of guitarist Ricky Wilson, the B-52s continued to score hits with singles like "Love Shack" and "Roam" off of 1989's Cosmic Thing.
