Whatever Happened To… Orleans?

Love Takes Time – Orleans (1979)
This American band survived multiple line-up changes and bankrupt record labels over the years. Founding drummer Wells Kelly died in 1984, but the band re-grouped and lasted until 1997. In 2001, Orleans reunited with three founding members in the line-up. They released their most recent studio album in 2005, and guitarist John Hall left in 2006 following his election to the US House of Representatives. Orleans continue to perform and will be celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2012.
