Born in Gainesville, Fla., this future Rock Hall inductee's first band formed in 1969 and gained popularity in Gainesville but failed to attract a national audience and split up soon after.

The singer-guitarist reluctantly went on to pursue a solo career, with several other former members of his former band forming the core of what became his new backing band. Playing a style of music that combined bluesy rock, neo-psychedelia and New Wave, he would issue a steady stream of gold and platinum records over the next several decades, scoring nine No. 1 rock singles along the way with hits like 'Jammin' Me' and 'The Waiting.'

He still continues to record and tour, with a 2008 performance at the Super Bowl his highest-profile gig to date.
