They said that you should never mix business with pleasure, but it just makes sense to do it sometimes. Several of the couples we feature here were living proof that love and music can meet in mysterious ways, and while they vary in different genres, they did contain that one element that made them incredibly appealing to the audience: unfaltering chemistry. Take a look at them below.


Captain & Tennille

Famous in the ‘70s, Captain and Tennille have five albums that have gone gold or platinum and include songs like “Muskrat Love.” They also hosted The Captain & Tennille Show, an ABC variety show that ran from 1976–1977. They tied the knot in 1974 and ended their 39-year marriage in 2014.

Fleetwood Mac

Originally established in 1967, British blues rock band Fleetwood Mac went through a number of lineup changes until former lovers Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks replaced the departing members. John McVie and his wife, Christine, were also members of the band. After that, things get much worse, with Mick Fleetwood divorcing his wife and having an affair with Stevie Nicks. Those concerns aside, the band created sacred music, a heavenly fusion of pop and rock.

Ike & Tina Turner

Ike & Tina Turner had a successful career from 1960 until 1976, with songs like “Come Together” and “Proud Mary” among their many hits. After struggling with money, marital violence, and substance abuse, the husband and wife duo that formed the band eventually split up in 1978.

Sonny & Cher

Sonny and Cher were a famous singing team, best remembered for hits like “I Got You Babe.” But aside from their singing careers, the pair also headlined comedic variety shows on television, such as The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour. Sonny and Cher’s separated in 1975, and since then, Bono was elected to represent California in Congress before his untimely death in a skiing accident, while Cher went on to become a successful actress and solo music artist in her own right.

The White Stripes

Jack and Meg White, formerly a married couple from Detroit, formed the White Stripes, one of the most influential rock bands of the 2000s. They tied the knot in 1996, but split up in 2000, far before any of them hit it big. Jack played guitar and sang lead, while Meg played drums. Although the band officially disbanded in 2011, the members have stayed close.
