If you were to analyze today's alternative rock music, you will find that much of it pays homage to The Psychedelic Furs. Led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler and his bassist brother Tim, the Furs scored major hits with "Love My Way," "Pretty In Pink," "Heaven," "The Ghost In You," and "Heartbreak Beat." Born out of the post-punk UK rock scene, the Furs quickly developed as one of the premiere bands on U.S. college campuses and modern rock radio. With the advent of MTV in the early 80's, the band took off into the stratosphere, and when John Hughes approached the band with his film built around the Furs' song "Pretty In Pink," the band's legacy was cemented. After a brief hiatus in the 90's, and a side project called "Love Spit Love," the band regrouped at the dawn of the new millennium. The Psychedelic Furs touring lineup remains Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass), Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboards), and Paul Garisto (drums).
