Artist Countdown: Mike & The Mechanics Top 25 6p ET

M&MMike + The Mechanics are an English rock/pop supergroup formed in 1985 as a side project of Mike Rutherford, one of the founding members of the band Genesis. The band is known for their hit singles “Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground)”, “All I Need Is a Miracle”, “Word of Mouth”, “Over My Shoulder”, and “The Living Years”.

Initially, the band included Rutherford, vocalists Paul Carrack and Paul Young, keyboardist Adrian Lee and drummer Peter Van Hooke. Carrack was generally assigned to ballads and more pop-oriented numbers, while Young handled the band’s heavier work.[1] After a successful decade, Lee and Van Hooke dropped out in 1995, and were not replaced. Following Young’s death in 2000, Carrack became the band’s sole lead vocalist until 2004 when the band (essentially a duo at this point) went on hiatus. The band identity was revived in 2010 with a completely new set of musicians working with Rutherford, including new vocalists Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar. – Wikipedia
