Personalities | Huey Lewis & The News | Eighties | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1979–present)

Huey Lewis (b. Hugh Cregg III, vocals, guitar) and Sean Hopper (vocals, guitar) were refugees from country rock band Clover. They found global success with the pop-inflected blue-collar rock of their next incarnation. Their third album Sports (1983) became an American No. 1, and bore three Top 10 US tracks including ‘Heart And Soul’. ‘The Power Of Love’ established the band in the UK, and 1986 outing Fore! also sold big. The 1980s succumbed to the honest charm of Lewis.
