The critically acclaimed Arcade Fire band members can swell to 10 in number while they're touring, but for the majority of time, they settle for a core collection of seven musicians. Of those seven is lead honcho Win Butler and his wife, Régine Chassagne, who met as students at McGill University in Montreal. She was singing jazz at an art gallery and, on their first date after meeting, they wrote the popular song "Headlights Look Like Diamonds" together.
