Blind Item #5 - Reader Blind

This band had a number of hits a number of decades ago, songs any FM radio listener would know and a number of these songs have appeared in movie soundtracks as well.  Although it is down to a couple main members, they still tour regularly and have recently released their first new music in many years.

This band always had a weird extranormal mythos about them due to their name and iconography, and especially their lyrics. What is interesting about the latter is that while all of the original members of the band contributed to the music, a lot of their earlier lyrics were written by their deceased manager/producer. He also was responsible for much of their look and image.

Any conversation or interview with him would always come back to an experience he had  earlier in his life he claimed to have  been kidnapped by extraterrestrials and they were still giving him messages now on how the band should run.
