British rocker Steve Harley formed the band Cockney Rebel in 1973. Their 1974 single "Judy Teen" became Cockney Rebel's first hit. A Harley solo single, "Big Big Deal, " preceded the formation of a new Cockney Rebel lineup, and 1975's The Best Years of Our Lives generated their first U.K. chart-topper, "Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)." Harley spent most of the '80s removed from the pop scene, but soon formed a new incarnation of Cockney Rebel and regularly toured into the following decade. 1999's Stripped to Bare Bones documents an acoustic set recorded the year previous. Yes You Can was issued in summer 2000. ~ Jason Ankeny
