The Biography of Hootie and the Blowfish
Hootie & the Blowfish is an Americanpop-rock band, originally formed at theUniversity of South Carolina byDarius Rucker, Dean Felber, Jim "Soni" Sonefeld and Mark Bryan.
Their debut album was Cracked Rear View (1994) and it was an instant success, selling over 13 million copies, propelled by three hits, "Hold My Hand", "Let Her Cry" and "Only Wanna Be With You".
In1995, Hootie & the Blowfish contributed the song "Hey Hey What Can I Do" to the Encomium tribute album toLed Zeppelin. The band's second album was Fairweather Johnson. Though sales began promisingly, it quickly ran out of steam. Hootie & the Blowfish has since released three more albums, Musical Chairs, Scattered, Smothered and Covered, and Hootie & the Blowfish.
Contrary to popular belief, Hootie is not the nickname of frontmanDarius Rucker. The band's name comes from two of Rucker's friends, neither of whom was ever a band member. One, with a round face and glasses, was nicknamed Hootie because of his perceivedowl-like appearance. The Blowfish also got his nickname from his facial appearance, in his case chubby cheeks.
The album Scattered, Smothered and Covered is named in tribute ofWaffle House, a popular Southern chain of all night diners.
A new album, Looking For Lucky, is scheduled for release on August 9th, 2005.
