Huey Lewis and the News Background and AccoladesHuey Lewis and Sean Hopper were originally part of a band in the San Francisco Bay Area called Clover. Clover was active in the 1970s before they migrated over to the UK as part of the pub rock scene in the country. Lewis also worked with another band in the 1970s called Thin Lizzy, where he contributed the harmonica for "Baby Drives Me Crazy" and met his future team members from Clover's main competition called Soundhole. In 1978, Huey Lewis teamed up with Bill Gibson, Johnny Colla, Mario Cippolina and Sean Hopper to form a new band of their own through a contract with Phonogram Records. It wasn't until the release of the band's second album, Picture This, that it began to be recognized for its talent. Huey Lewis and the News signed with BMG Rights Management to collaborate in the release of a new album with original songs dubbed Weather. This will be the first studio album to have been recorded years in the making.
