First Bands Archive

First Bands Archive:
This is an archive of band members and artists' first documented, band. This is not a top 100, it is an informational archive. If you would like me to source an artist's first band, leave suggestions in the music forum.

If you have any corrections, please give me the corrections and the source of your information.

Band Members not present are those that were not part of any documented bands before their breakout bands/records.
