TIMELINE

Barenaked Ladiesbutton.gif (123 bytes) Barenaked Ladies formed in 1988 in Canada, but it took a decade for the band to really "make it big." The band originally consisted of founders Ed Robertson on guitar and Steven Page on guitar, Andrew Creeggan on keyboards, Jim Creeggan on bass, and Tyler Stewart on drums. It may have taken a decade for mainstream audiences to embrace the Barenaked Ladies with the single "One Week," but critics and devoted fans were Barenaked Ladies supporters throughout their rise. Part of the band's on-stage popularity resides in their habit of changing lyrics during their concert performances and covering other artist's work in a Barenaked Ladies style.
