Making a band with your siblings makes a lot of sense -- after all, they probably get your work ethic, style and preferences and are hard-wired to forgive you. Yet that often seems to change after fame arrives. Oasis, known for such hits as "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova," formed in the early '90s and was centered around the brother duo Noel, second from left, and Liam Gallagher, right. Those two bros have become infamous for their disagreements, and by 2009, Noel left the band for good. According to a report, the two are reuniting for a documentary.
The Jackson 5 -- which consisted of, from left, Michael, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Jackie (Randy is also pictured between Tito and Jermaine) -- set the gold standard for sibling bands. Formed in the late '60s, the band was behind some of the most memorable hits from the '70s, including "ABC," "Never Can Say Goodbye" and "I'll Be There."
Founded by brothers Dave and Ray Davies, rock band The Kinks was one of the British Invasion groups to leave a lasting mark on music on both sides of the Atlantic. Their 1964 single, "You Really Got Me," stands out as part of that era's soundtrack, along with "All Day and All of the Night." But Dave and Ray weren't immune to bickering.
When this photo was taken of iconic rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival -- consisting of, from left, Doug Clifford, Tom Fogerty, Stu Cook and John Fogerty -- in April 1970, the band was at its peak. But by 1971, Tom would leave his brother John, reportedly over issues of creative control, and CCR disbanded in 1972.
The members of Sly and the Family Stone were relatives by funk as well as by blood. Sly, the charismatic lead singer, brought his brother Fred and sister Rose along for the chart-climbing ride the band experienced during the late '60s and '70s. Sly's immense talent didn't survive his battle with drugs, and the band eventually dissipated.
Commonly called "the Southern Strokes," Kings of Leon has had some very high highs -- with inescapable jams like "Use Somebody" and "Sex on Fire" -- but also some frustrating lows, which were plaintively chronicled in the Showtime documentary "Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon."
Before the Jacksons, the Osmonds or the Allmans, Phil, left, and Don Everly showed the world how sibling rock is done. The massively successful and influential duo behind several lasting classics, such as "Wake Up Little Susie" and "Bye Bye Love," ended up suffering greatly behind the scenes. In 1973, escalating tension led to the announcement that the brothers were breaking up.
With a name inspired by the concept of de-evolution, Mark Mothersbaugh and Jerry Casale brought on their brothers, each named Bob, and Alan Myers to form Devo, seen here performing in Los Angeles around 1979. Although they never quite managed to maintain the mainstream success found with 1980's "Whip It!" Devo's status as an important cult pop/rock group hasn't wavered through its various incarnations.
The band Heart has seen its fair share of lineup changes, but at its core are pioneering sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson. (This photo, taken circa the 1980s, shows Ann and Nancy, center, with Mark Andes, left, Denny Carmassi and Howard Leese.) The sisters were there as Heart gained Canadian and then American success in the '70s and held on through periods of unpopularity only to continuously emerge as rock stars once again. In 2013, Heart was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Cemented by brothers Duane and Gregg Allman, The Allman Brothers Band is iconic for both its live jam sessions and its lingering impact on rock 'n' roll. The soulful Southern group -- made up of, from left, Duane, Dickey Betts, Gregg, Jai Johanny Johanson, Berry Oakley and Butch Trucks -- released a debut album in 1969 and quickly established a reputation as one of the best. By 1971, the group suffered a devastating blow, when founding Allman brother Duane died in a motorcycle accident.
As Sly and the Family Stone sang, the '70s really were a family affair. Following the monstrous popularity of The Jackson 5, another musical family climbed to pop stardom: The Osmonds. In the early '70s, the group -- consisting of brothers, from left, Merrill, Wayne, Alan, Jay and Donny, seen here with brother Jimmy, right, and sister Marie, left -- transitioned from their barbershop harmonies and variety shows to teen idol status with songs like "One Bad Apple." Eventually, Marie and Jimmy got in on the act, too.
