11 Musicians Who Were in Other Groups Before Joining Their Famous Band
They say that practice makes perfect, especially when it comes to musical skill. That’s why so many of your favorite band members have secret band histories that you never even knew about! What we mean by that is that, before they became members of the band for which you know and love them, they were a part of a much, much lesser-known band, just honing their band-member skills.
And it looks like it’s paid off for them! Because these 11 band members are pretty big successes in their current bands, no doubt in part due to the stuff that they picked up the first time around:
Before you were ever a Directioner (because Harry hadn't yet gone on The X Factor to tell Simon Cowell that he "wuhks in uh bay-kree"), Harry was jamming with his high school band, White Elephant. In fact, it was with this band, which was formed for a school talent show, that he even discovered that he liked singing.
