Blood, Sweat & Tears

How Blood, Sweat and Tears got their band name - Johnny Cash In San Quentin PrisonTo avoid exertion the name of this pop and jazz rock band from New York is often abbreviated to BS&T.

It is not a reference to the famous words spoken by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill during his first address as Premier during the second World War, because that reads differently ('I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.').

No, the New Yorkers spotted the title of a 1963 album by country artist Johnny Cash.

Active: 1967-1981; 1984-present, USA
