Last Names: As you may have noticed, both Erica and Tina have the last name “Campbell”. This is not a chosen stage name. They both married men with the last name Campbell. Tina is married to drummer/singer Teddy Campbell and Erica married the manager/producer Warryn Campbell. Warren and Teddy are not related in any way! The last name is a pure coincidence.
