10 Rockers Who Pulled Off a Hat Trick

Subscribe to Loudwire on

To become a famous rock or metal musician is a million-to-one shot, but finding success in three or more acts puts you in an entirely different group of icons.

The great majority of popular musicians are simply good at being in one band. Chemistry and creative partnership between members are the cogs which keep the wheel moving, with one malfunction potentially souring the future works of any act. However, these 10 rockers are such creative powerhouses that they can drive forward multiple projects, sometimes at once.

Possibly the most legendary sonic multitasker is Dave Grohl. After rising to prominence with Nirvana in the early ‘90s, Grohl would form the Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures and Probot. That’s not even counting his stints as drummer for Queen of the Stone Age and Tenacious D.

Let’s talk about the late Ronnie James Dio. After lending his godlike voice to Elf and Ronnie and the Red Caps, Dio embarked on a career completely unparalleled by his contemporaries. After his soaring vocal performances with Rainbow, Ronnie filled metal’s biggest shoes in Ozzy Osbourne to breathe new life into Black Sabbath. Dio’s solo career delivered even more legendary heavy metal with near-perfect albums like Holy Diver and The Last in Line.
