1) Sweeney Todd is a 1970's Canadian Glam-Rock Band. Formed in Vancouver, British Columbia during 1975, the band originally consisted of vocalist Nick Gilder, guitarist Jim McCulloch, bassist Budd Marr, keyboardist Dan Gaudin and drummer John Booth. The single, "Roxy Roller", became a #1 hit in Canada winning a Juno Award for the band, but Gilder and McCulloch subsequently left the band to pursue solo careers. (Gilder subsequently had hits with "Hot Child in the City," "Here Comes The Night" and "(you really) Rock Me".)
Clark Perry was brought in to replace Gilder on vocals, and Skip Prest replaced McCulloch on guitar. Perry didn't work out, however, and was replaced within a few months by then 16 year old Bryan Adams.
The new lineup recorded Sweeney Todd's second album, If Wishes Were Horses. However, that album was unsuccessful, and Adams left the band. The band attempted to carry on with Chris Booth on vocals (and Grant Gislason replacing Prest in 1978), but broke up before recording any further albums.
The band re-united in 2000 and is currently working on "The Sweeney Todd LP" and touring across Canada.
2) Sweeney Todd (born Chris Sweeney) is a British punk singer-songwriter, he has been lead vocalist for The Dead Pets, Everybody Out! and Lost City Angels. He appeared in the UK Channel4 TV show 'Faking It'; where he had to become a classical conductor.

Wait, what's your rush? What's your hurry?
You gave me such a fright, I thought you was a ghost
Half a minute can't you sit? Sit you down, sit
All I meant is that I haven't seen a customer for weeks
- LyricsI have sailed the world, beheld its wonders
From the Dardanelles to the mountains of Peru
But there's no place like London!
I feel home again
I could hear the city bells ring

These are my friends
See how they glisten
See this one shine
