Styx (Lawrence Gowan) - is an American rock band from Chicago that became famous for its albums from the mid-1970s and early 1980s. They are best known for melding the style of prog-rock with the power of hard-rock guitar, strong ballads and elements of international musical theater.

Tiffany - American singer, actress and former teen icon. She is most notable for her 1987 cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now”, originally recorded by Tommy James and the Shondells in 1967. Released as the second single from her eponymous album, Tiffany, the song quickly became a teen anthem. Thanks to an original mall tour, “The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour ’87″, Tiffany found commercial success; both the single and the album peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts, respectively. The singles, “Could’ve Been” and “I Saw Him Standing There”, a cover version of The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There”, followed soon after, with the former also claiming the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100.
The Platters (Sonny Turner) - The Platters were one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era. Their distinctive sound was a bridge between the pre-rock Tin Pan Alley tradition and the burgeoning new genre. The group had 40 charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1955 and 1967, including four no. 1 hits.
The Bellamy Brothers - The Bellamy Brothers are an American pop and country music duo consisting of brothers David Milton Bellamy (born September 16, 1950) and Homer Howard Bellamy (born February 2, 1946), from Darby, Florida, United States. The duo had considerable musical success in the 1970s and 1980s, starting with the release of their crossover hit “Let Your Love Flow” in 1976, a Number One single on the Billboard Hot 100.
Starting in the late 1970s, the Bellamy Brothers found success in country music as well, charting twenty Number One singles and more than fifty hits overall on the country charts. To date, they have released more than fifty albums, primarily on Curb Records.
Eddie Money - Eddie Money (born Edward Joseph Mahoney; March 2, 1949), is an American rock guitarist, saxophonist and singer-songwriter, who found success in the 1970s and 1980s with a string of Top 40 hits and platinum albums. Rock impresario Bill Graham said of Money, “Eddie Money has it all…. Not only can he sing, write, and play, but he is a natural performer.”
Today, he still tours regularly, often accompanied by other successful rock acts from the 1970s and 1980s, and has also made several television appearances on American sitcoms. He played himself in season 4, episode 23 of the sitcom, The King of Queens.

Music Charts Magazine® History
- Song for the month of September 2014:
David Allan Coe - “Longhaired Redneck“
“Longhaired Redneck” is the title of a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist David Allan Coe. It was released in January 1976 as the lead single from Coe’s album of the same name. The song is notable for its direct reference to the “outlaw” movement in country music during the 70′s of which Coe was associated, as well as the chorus which features Coe impersonating classic country artists Ernest Tubb, “Whisperin’” Bill Anderson, and Merle Haggard. The song peaked at number 17 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and at number 23 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart. It was written by Coe with Jimmy Rabbitt, who is also a popular radio DJ in Texas.
