    Pakistani rock band ‘Strings’ started in 1988 as a college group, originally with four members. They ruled the music scene in the Nineties and also composed music for Bollywood films such as Zinda, Shootout at Lokhandwala and John Day.

    The break-up of iconic Pakistani rock band, ‘Strings’, which has been creating musical magic for 33 years, has left fans devastated and heartbroken. Netizens have flooded social media with their reactions and pleading with the band for a “farewell concert”.

    Two of the original members of the band - Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia - took to social media on Thursday and announced that the band had come to the end of the line, and posted a farewell note.

    "The past 33 years have been incredible for both of us. It’s so rare to have the chance to be able to do things like this and we are infinitely grateful to all our fans for making it possible... Although the band technically may not be together anymore, both of us share an inseparable bond that will connect us no matter where life takes us. Thank you so much for everything," the post read.
