Tom Scholz and other engineer/musicians


I'm a rock music fan and was wondering if anyone new of any musicians who are also professional engineers. I love my music and like to get inspiration from those who have combined the two.
One example is Tom Scholz who started the group Boston

Just a throwaway topic really, but thought I'd post it anyway.


Fergal Sharkey (The Undertones lead singer and now head of UK Music) was an IC designer.

Not electronics, but:

(Dr) Brian May was studying an Astronomy PhD when he left to start Queen, and recently went back to complete it.

A couple of Pink Floyd (Nick Mason and Richard Wright) are both architecture graduates.

Don't forget the parents of spread spectrum technology, Hedy Lamarr and George Antheil.

Girl Talk aka Gregg Gillis does biomedical engineering work, not sure if he is a biomedical engineer by degree, but I assume he is.

SIDE NOTE:  Robert Heinlein the sci fi author and his wife were both engineers
