The origins of this band moved up to a fusion of hard rock and a classical symphonic sound, and a new name, with the “new” band covering a song popularized by the original group. And as the new incarnation gained popularity, it cut the strings from it's formula and picked up a more mainstream pop sound. The band's first Dick Clark TV appearance featured a Chuck Berry classic. The group had 20 US top 40 Billboard hits, and sold more than 100 million albums, but never had a number 1 hit. The creative force behind this band later teamed up with Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Ray Orbison.
