1. 'Missing Band' Case File #1968
Particulars: "The Last Time" that I had to deal with a case like this it was a "Dismal Day". "Could I" really solve it? Early in their career this band could "Take Comfort" in their success, with 11 songs "Belonging" to the Billboard Hot 100 by 1973. "If" only they could have kept things from "Coming Apart". That year, tensions between D.G. and J.G. led to a split, and it would be three years before they had a "Change of Heart" and tried to make things "Just Like Yesterday". The reunion only lasted a year, and in the middle of their tour, J.G. decided he had "Been Too Long On The Road", leaving again. Solo careers ensued, and fans could only "Hold Tight" to their hopes and dreams for a reunion, asking "Why Do You Keep Me Waiting"? "It Don't Matter To Me" why they took 19 years to hit the road again, but in 1996 they got back together for a tour that lasted into '97.
Who is the band in question? Pick them out from the lineup. Don't worry... it's one-way glass... they can't see you.
2. 'Missing Band' Case File #1969
Particulars: I will "Remember" this case "Forever". Four Rs joined forces to create a band (R.D., R.H., R.M. and R.P.), and after a few "Casual Conversations" decided that they would "Surely" succeed. Unfortunately, "It's A Long Road" to success, and the band went through some "Crazy" changes before settling on a winning combination. "Better Days" had arrived and the band became popular, showing how "Times Have Changed". After their 1983 tour, R.H. committed the "Crime of the Century" and left the band. R.D. asked the rest of the group to "Give Me A Chance", and they continued on for a while, but "Sooner Or Later", a breakup was bound to happen. After a 1988 road tour, fans were "Broken Hearted", and everyone had to "Take The Long Way Home". R.D. was a "Dreamer", though, and decided to "Try Again". He reformed the group (without R.H.) in 1996, and they were seen on that dangerous road again as late as 2002. Everyone was forced to go "Home Again" after that tour, and fans wanted to know what "The Meaning" was behind another breakup! With fans "Still In Love", it was great news to hear of a reunion tour (still without R.H.) in 2010 after "Waiting So Long".

3. 'Missing Band' Case File #1971
Particulars: In their "Earlybird" days, this band were simply the backup band for L.R., but she encouraged them to "Take It To The Limit" on their own. Early success gave the group a "Peaceful Easy Feeling", but it takes a "Certain Kind of Fool" to believe that "Life In The Fast Lane" lasts forever. "I Can't Tell You Why" they did it, but during a concert while on tour in 1980, things got "Out of Control" and G.F. and D.F. were "Guilty Of The Crime" of threatening each other while on stage. It seemed like there would be no more "Saturday Night" concerts as the group split up, seemingly for "The Long Run". Each individual tried solo careers as though it was "Business As Usual", but to fans, the "Tryin'" was "Wasted Time". I'd given up on solving this case - I thought they were gone like "James Dean", but "Somebody" told me that they had reunited! "How Long" had it been? A whole fourteen years! G.F. was heard to say that the band had never broken up - they'd just taken a fourteen-year vacation. "Is it true?" I'll let you decide.

4. 'Missing Band' Case File #1972
Particulars: I was handed a Mammoth problem; the Genesis of a new case dealing with a band whose original lead singer left in 1985 to hit the "Mean Street" on his own. The remaining band members found S.H. to replace him, and while some thought they were "Runnin' With the Devil", for many fans he was "Good Enough". In 1996, S.H. said "This Dream is Over" and left the group. It looked like the group might bring back their original singer, but he was "In 'n' Out" almost faster than you can say "Where Have All the Good Times Gone!" An Extreme move led to G.C. taking over lead vocals, but that "Dirty Water Dog" lasted all of three years. In 1999, the group disappeared, seemingly another casualty of that dangerous road. Amazingly, in 2003, S.H. said "Take Me Back" and the band was seen on the road again in 2004. It was "Not Enough", though, and S.H. left again in 2005. Would it take until "Judgement Day" before the group would be seen again? Amazingly, no. After 22 years, the original lead singer became "Top Jimmy" once again, and in 2007 they took to the road once more. Fans could be seen "Dancing In the Street"!
Could you repeat that name, so that I can be sure that I spelled it correctly?
5. 'Missing Band' Case File #1974
Particulars: When I was asked to take this case "I Didn't Have The Nerve To Say No". I wanted to tell them to "Just Go Away", but I knew that "One Way Or Another" I would see it through. I knew that D.H. and C.S. had formed the group "Dreaming" to be musical "Heroes" to the world. For a few years life seemed to move in "Slow Motion" as they experienced the "Rapture" of success, but it did not last. The group came "Undone" in 1982 for a number of reasons, but the catalyst was when C.S. became ill "In The Flesh". D.H. continued on with a solo career after a while, but "The Hardest Part" was "Living In The Real World" and having to repay over $1 million in debt. Despite the passing of the years, "Fan Mail" continued, and eventually the band members were able to "Forgive And Forget" the past. In 1997 they reunited and promptly could be found "Out In The Streets" (...or you could say "on the road") once again.

6. 'Missing Band' Case File #1977
Particulars: "O My God", this is perhaps my most disturbing case. At times I have been "Driven To Tears" thinking of how affected my "Friends" were when this group disappeared from the road into the "Darkness" after their 1986 tour. Even my "Mother" said "I'm So Lonely" with them gone; they've left a "Hole In My Life". For 21 years fans waited, yearning for "Contact" with the band they adored, thinking "It's Never Too Late" for them to reunite. And reunite they did - briefly - in 2007 for a road tour, before disbanding again a year later. Should you hope with "Every Breath You Take" for their return? The "Voices Inside My Head" say "It's Alright For You", but eventually, "The Truth Hits Everybody".
Can you confirm again the name that you gave, just for the record?
7. 'Missing Band' Case File #1980
Particulars: When I found this case I thought it was quite The Catch. "Somebody Told Me" that it would be a waste of my time to take it on, but "I Did It Just The Same". The duo (with backup band) did not receive accolades until their second album, but "Don't Ask Me Why", I thought it was a "Shame". Their future looked bright, but "In This Town", nothing lasts "Forever". After ten years (mostly) together, A.L. and D.S. asked each other "Do You Want To Break Up?" They would not "Come Together" again officially until nine years had passed. They promptly hit that vicious road with no "Regrets", but despite their "Revival", fans wondered "How Long?" Sure enough, the duo would "Wrap It Up" again a mere six years later, citing that it would be "The Last Time". "Would I Lie To You?"

8. 'Missing Band' Case File #1984
Particulars: "I Remember When" I was handed this file. I had a "Funny Feeling" that I would have to take things "Step By Step" if I wanted to solve this case. Rather than starting out on their own, the group was formed by M.S. by audition to see who had "The Right Stuff". Early on, the group had to work hard to "Keep On Smilin'", what with M.W. leaving and being replaced by J.K., who in turn left and was replaced by J.M. After that, though, it looked like everyone would "Hold On" and keep "Hangin' Tough". After a successful ten-year run, the group broke up, leaving fans saying "I Can't Believe It's Over". After a whopping fourteen years not seen on that deadly road, they said "Let's Try It Again" and the hiatus was "Officially Over". During their 2008 tour, "Girls" could be heard to say "If You Go Away" again, "I'll Be Waitin'".

9. 'Missing Band' Case File #1988
Particulars: This file came to my attention on a "Quiet" day. After learning that this band had said "Farewell and Goodnight" to their fans in the year 2000 after over a decade of success, I was "Crestfallen" as I dwelt on the dangers of the Road and how "Speed Kills". A little research revealed that fans did not have to "Suffer" for long. In 2005, Band leader B.C. announced that "The Fellowship" would "Try, Try, Try" again, and "This Time" things would be "Perfect". Now, "I Am One" who is quick "To Forgive" groups that I "Love". I can only pray that this time, the group's "Age of Innocence" won't run up against a "Doomsday Clock" again.
That's it, take your time. Please identify the group that you saw from this selection.
10. 'Missing Band' Case File #1994
Particulars: My last file was so difficult to figure out that I felt like a Naked Toddler "Bound and Tied" with no chance of escape. What I knew was that S.S. and M.T. had recruited B.M. and S.P. to form a band "In America", and for a while it was "Beautiful". But things began to go the "Wrong Way" with their third album in 2001. The "Signs" were all there for an imminent break-up as B.M. had left the group. They "Weathered" their 2002 tour with stand-in B.H., but it proved to be "One Last Breath" before "Suddenly" announcing their break-up in 2004. "Time" passed, and the members of the band stayed "Away in Silence". Five years after that announcement and seven years since last touring, the members found a way to "Overcome" their differences, forgive the "Unforgiven", and come "Full Circle" to reunite and hit the road again in the fall of 2009. Their fans were able to "Wash Away Those Years" and accept the band back "With Arms Wide Open".
