Fun fact: Steppenwolf singer John Kay born in Russia.
Well, not really. He was born in East Prussia, Germany during WWII. The Soviet Union annexed East Prussia at the end of WWII and it was divided between Poland and the Soviet Union. After the Soviet Union broke up the town where he was born became a part of Russia.

Why is short-lived a criteria? The Beatles recorded and released 213 original songs. Are they "too short lived" to be considered England's best band?

5 of the most influential bands ever , that’s even more remarkable considering how “ short-lived “ they were ….
