The music scene has seen enough drama and surprises in the past number of decades. There have been stars and there have been stars. Fame picks different acts from various genres and hits the world with them. Many of the musicians that stood in the spotlight went ahead to have great music careers and made a fortune while there are some that were just the ‘one hit wonders’.
