He was the leader of one of Britain's biggest rock bands -- then he happily walked away to exercise his creativity on smaller stages. Can you recognize him from this yearbook photo?

Since then, he's released several well-received solo albums, collaborated with a couple of country music icons, and worked on the soundtracks to a number of hit movies. Think you know who we're talking about? Click below to find out if you're right!
