Siblings in bands

For reasons unknown (which probably wouldn't make sense even if they were known), I've always been intrigued when I'd find out about siblings being in a band together. I guess it's just the idea of working with a family member, especially a brother or sister and all that fun sibling rivalry - I mean you'd never get away from them, right? Who'd want that? *lol* But anyway, for kicks, call off any in-band sibling you know of.

In My Chemical Romance there's Gerard and Mikey Way, the singer and bassist respectively.

Nickelback's Chad and Mike Kroeger are also the singer and bassist, amusingly enough.

Jared and Shannon Leto, singer (yet again) and this time drummer of 30 Seconds to Mars.

Only ones I personally can think of, but I collect meaningless band trivia, so hit me biggrin.gif

Well we have the Jonas Brothers, but I don't want to talk about them for obvious reasons, so...

Limp Bizkit - Wes and Scott Borland, guitars and keyboard
Demon Hunter - Ryan and Don Clark, vocals and guitars (unfortunately, Don left Demon Hunter just a few days ago :( Both we're also together in another band before DH, called Training for Utopia.)
God Is An Astronaut - Torsten Kinsella and Niels Kinsella, both multi-instrumentalists
Living Sacrifice - Jason and Chris Truby, guitars and bass, as well as Matt and Cory Putman, percussion and guitars (the Putman brothers have also done vocals on several songs. You should know Jess, btw, that the singer of this band, Bruce Fitzhugh, sings in Evanescence's Lies. wink.gif)
Sepultura - Max and Igor Cavalera, guitars & vocals and drums

I had at least one more in my mind but forgot it lol.

"We’ve never tried to come off as better than our fans, our fans... when they come to see us play, they’re actually a part of, you know, us playing. Sonny, the way he is on stage, he connects with them, emotional and in every kind of way you can imagine, you know, musically, and I think that they can see that it’s not, you know, a put on, it’s not something that’s fake, it’s real." -

Before someone mentions it, Jack and Meg White aren't siblings, cos Jack's real name is John Gillis and he changed it for the White Stripes and they are ex-husband and ex-wife.

To be honest, other than that, I can't think of anyone else. All I can think of is Steve Tyler from Aerosmith and his acting daughter Liv Tyler, but I know that doesn't count.

Aha! Found one!
Ella and Jesse Hooper - Killing Heidi
Ella is the singer and her brother Jesse is the bassist.
