The <Somebody> <Something>

Postby NMB » 14 Nov 2018, 10:03

I struggled to come up with a concise title for this but I've been thinking about band names in that format and what goes on the end. Eg

The Spencer Davis Group
The Tom Robinson Band
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
The Graham Bond Organization

What other examples are there for the last word in the name?

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.
