Huey Lewis and The News Background
Huey Lewis' family moved from New York to San Francisco when
he was just four years old, and this move proved to be instrumental in shaping this aspiring young musician. Lewis' mother
became entranced with the beatniks and often hung out with anti-conformist youths like Alan Ginsburg and Jack Kerouac. Lewis
spent eight years in San Francisco until his parents' divorce, when he was sent to New Jersey to attend boarding school. Even
though Lewis was an incredibly bright student—he was accepted into Cornell University and scored a perfect 800 on the
math section of the SATs—Lewis knew that music was really what he was passionate about. So after just six months at
Cornell, he dropped out of school, moved to San Francisco, and started trying to achieve his dream of becoming a musician.
the mid 1970s, Lewis found some success as a vocalist and harmonica player for a band called Clover. He decided to leave,
however, after the band was transplanted in the UK and Europe. Lewis went back to San Francisco and started jamming with bassist
Mario Cipollina, drummer Bill Gibson, and guitarist and saxophonist Jonny Colla. Soon after thy started playing in local bars,
lead guitarist Chris Hayes joined the group, and they became Huey Lewis and The News.
By 1980, the band had signed a
record contract with Chrysalis and had released their self-titled debut album, which achieved limited commercial success.
Just two years later, however, Huey Lewis and The News emerged onto the pop scene with their album Picture This, which cracked
the top 20 and launched their image as one of the best pop bands of the decade.
From that moment, Huey Lewis and The
News spent their time in the limelight of the pop world, garnering fans all around the world. They played to sold-out crowds,
released numerous platinum, double platinum, and even triple platinum albums, and also topped music charts around the world.
