Robin Zander is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the rock band Cheap Trick. Their biggest hits include "Surrender", "I Want You to Want Me", "Dream Police" and "The Flame". They have often been referred to in the Japanese press as the "American Beatles". The band was also ranked No. 25 in VH1's list of the 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. He holds the distinction of being perhaps the only singer in rock history whose influence can be detected in such polar opposite musical styles as '80s glam metal (Motley Crue's Vince Neil, Enuff Z'nuff's Donnie Vie), and '90s alternative (Nirvana's Kurt Cobain, Stone Temple Pilots' Scott Weiland, etc.).
