The best bands, the ones that endure and leave an indelible mark, are like superheroes. The Beatles, Queen and Kiss are no different than the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and the Avengers in that they’re composites of distinct, singular personalities that exude mystique and induce fantasy. Over the past 27 years, by virtue of their songs, synergy, work ethic and individuality, golden-throated vocalist Robin Zander, goofball guitarist and main songwriter Rick Nielsen, 12-string bassist Tom Petersson and anti-rocker/drummer Bun E. Carlos with his ubiquitous dangling cigarette—until he quit a few years ago—have established Cheap Trick as such a band.
