* SpotlightStealingSquad: A lot of web sites list Robbie France as a former member of Alphaville, when he only spent a couple of years in the 90s touring with the band as a drummer. Other members of Alphaville's touring band from the same time period, such as bassist Alex Slavic and percussionist Shane Meehan, don't usually get listed as band members. France's status as a well-known music producer might explain the special treatment.
