* EpicRiff: The cookers foremost, but especially the epics.
* FaceOfTheBand: Obviously. The band is called Axel Rudi Pell, after its guitarist. Their music isn't credited as his solo work, however.
* GrowingTheBeard: When Johnny Gioeli joined, they had become a much more unique and cohesive band. It didn't hurt their popularity, either, considering that Gioeli's voice is heard all the time in SonicTheHedgehog games. He joined in 1998, and still performs with the band to this day, making him their longest-standing vocalist.
