Music is a very personal outlet that can unify people in a unique way. It's no surprise that many successful bands feature romantically involved members. While a couple can create magical music, the end of a romantic relationship may mean the end of a band.
Blondie formed in 1974, and members Debbie Harry and Chris Stein dated for years before splitting up after the band did the same. Arcade Fire began in 2001, and bandmates Win Butler and Regine Chasagne got married in 2003. Other bands that include current or former couples: The White Stripes, ABBA, Sonic Youth, Fleetwood Mac. The list goes on, with plenty of success and heartbreak along the way.
Do you think it's a good idea to date a bandmate? From country singers to rockers, here are some of famous bands that were or still are couples.
