After a big start in the early Eighties, slowing success and interband tension led to some time off for Loverboy late in the decade. Yet to this day, the Canadian rock crew retains all the members from its original hits (with the exception of bassist Scott Smith, who died in 2000). They can probably credit some of their longevity to the Saturday Night Live skit with Patrick Swayze and Chris Farley auditioning as Chippendales dancers, set to the tune of "Working for the Weekend." Fun fact: Loverboy holds the all-time record for Canada's Juno Awards, with nine trophies over the years.
