Rock Artists From Sheffield, England

Sheffield was the base for several bands in the rock era, including the Human League and the Thompson Twins.  It also was essentially the home for Def Leppard, as three of the group's members (Steve Clark, Joe Elliott and Rick Savage) hail from Sheffield.  Here are the other rock artists from Sheffield:

Arctic Monkeys
Paul Carrack (lead singer of Ace "How Long", Squeeze "Tempted" and Mike & the Mechnics "Silent Running")
Joe Cocker
Brice Dicinson, lead singer of Iron Maiden
Martin Fry of ABC ("The Look of Love" and "Be Near Me")
