UK band The Stranglers had 23 UK Top 40 hit singles and 17 UK Top 40 albums and despite falling from the limelight in the 90's  continued touring regularly and re-built a legacy that is now more popular than ever.
The band have had a few line up changes. Founding drummer Jet Black who formed the band in 1974 is now 80 and retired. Original guitarist Hugh Cornwell left the band in 1990 and was replaced by Guitarist and singer Baz Warne who joined the band in 2000. Baz had previously played in bands like the Toy Dolls and SmallTown Heroes, but by his own admission, had hit rock bottom before he scored the job in the Stranglers in 2000

The Stranglers announce their return to New Zealand in 2018 as part of their biggest global tour in 30 years,'The Classic Collection' Tour.
