TIMELINE

Annie Lennoxbutton.gif (123 bytes) Annie Lennox was born in Scotland on December 25, 1954. Annie's musical interest was evident to her parent from the time she was three years old, which ultimately led her to the Royal Academy of Music in London to study the flute. Although Annie's debut LP wasn't released until 1992, Annie is no stranger to musical success. Annie was one-half of the 1980's super duo, Eurythmics. While living in London, Annie met guitarist Dave Stewart and joined a band named The Tourists who gained marginal success in the U.K. in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Annie and Stewart soon left the band to form the Eurythmics. The group disbanded quietly in 1991 when Annie took time off to have a child, and eventually work on her solo debut. In 1989, Annie had some non-Eurythmics success when she teamed up with Al Green to record a remake of "Put A Little Love In Your Heart" for the soundtrack to Scrooged." But in the 90s, Annie emerged as a solo act: a white girl from Scotland with a lot of soul in her voice. Before Annie had even gone solo, she was awarded with 4 Brit Awards for Best British Female Artist (in 1984, 1986, 1989, and 1990).
