Billy Corgan wrote and sang all the songs for <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15394766/the-smashing-pumpkins">The Smashing Pumkpins</a> and still records under the name, even though the other original members are long gone. Same deal with James Mercer and <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/14837976/the-shins">The Shins</a>.

The band released its debut in 1997, but it was Grandaddy's second album — <em>The Sophtware Slump</em> — that broke through with critics and fans. Even <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15289962/david-bowie">David Bowie</a> called himself a fan when he approached the band members after seeing them play.<p>"That was about as good as it got, though, you know," Lytle says.
