Band Burning Bridges

Fellow Who fan Andy tells a great story of being the opener for a Big Name Act in the mid-'80s, hating said act's attitude and getting them back in an unbelievable fashion.

So, of course, the question is: Who is Big Name Act? He won't tell me. My guess is R.E.M. I even looked at the 120 Minutes Archives. If I can just get him to tell me the name of his band, I think I could figure it out.

Take your best guess.

EDIT: I still want to hear your guesses, but Andy has provided a clue. If you want the clue, highlight the text below.

"Not REM, but I'll say this much: Big Name Act are the only band ever
to have an album go platinum without it ever entering the Billboard
top 200."
