Have any twins have been in rock bands before Good Charlotte?
Joel and Benji Madden have a lot more company than you think–and we’re not even counting the Cocteau Twins or the Glimmer Twins. Fill your eyes with this double vision: Kim and Kelley Deal of the Breeders, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson of the ’90s pop-metal band Nelson, recent pop duo Evan and Jaron (last name Lowenstein), Herbert and Harold Kalin of the ’50s harmony duo the Kalin Twins, Craig and Charlie Reid of the Scottish pop-folk Proclaimers, Jay and Michael Aston of the ’80s goth band Gene Loves Jezebel, Claude and Cliff Trenier of the ’50s jump-blues group the Treniers, and Maurice and Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees. (Often assumed to be twins, but separated by almost three years: the albino brothers Johnny and Edgar Winter.) In addition, Alanis Morissette has a twin brother, while both Elvis Presley and Justin Timberlake had twin siblings who died at birth.
