10 Famous Trios Throughout History
Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds make up the Kingston Trio, leaders of the folk music revival that took place in the 1950s and 60s. Their first album, released in 1958 with the hit "Tom Dooley", sold over 3 million records. The group helped redefine the music industry by bringing folk music back into style, creating a demand for it when none had existed before. They often took risks with their music, taking on styles that their audiences were not accustomed to, and, together with great talent and songwriting ability, they became beloved the world over.
The Three Stooges
This comical trio started out in 1925 as part of a relatively unknown act called "Ted Healy and His Stooges". They were discovered in 1930 when they appeared in their debut film, "Soup to Nuts" - a film which, by all accounts, was considered a miserable failure. Despite this, the group, consisting of brothers Moe and Curly Howard and childhood friend Larry Fine, kept on pursuing their dream, and things quickly started looking bright for the trio.
From around 1925 until the 1980s, the trio defined a form a slapstick comedy that was unknown at the time. They were loud, obnoxious, and funny as hell. Finally, during the 1980s the trio started receiving the attention they deserved, and critical acclaim followed. They have starred in over 220 films and are loved the world over, filling the older generation with nostalgia and delight, as well as gaining younger fans due to their timeless antics.
