Biography

During their 1980s heyday, frontman Huey Lewis brought soul to a string of pop-rock hits generated by his band, the News, including the No. 1 singles "Power of Love," "Stuck with You" and "Jacob's Ladder," as well as the Top 10 tracks "I Want a New Drug," "If This Is It" and "The Heart of Rock-n-Roll." Lewis and his bandmates were veterans of the San Francisco music scene for over a decade before finally scoring their first charting single with "Do You Believe in Love" in 1982, but their genuine breakthrough came a year later with Sports (1983), which reached multi-platinum status, thanks to the band's blend of goodtime bar band rock and Motown-flecked R&B. "The Power of Love," from the 1985 film "Back to the Future," marked their first trip to the top of the pop charts, while Fore! yielded two more No. 1s before changing tastes in rock left their careers deflated in the early 1990s grunge era. Lewis enjoyed a second career as a supporting actor in features like "Short Cuts" (1995) and "Duets" (2000), while continuing to spread the gospel of rock and soul with the News at concerts throughout the United States. A powerhouse singer who straddled the pop, rock and R&B world with equal ease, Huey Lewis remained one of the most successful and beloved artists of the 1980s.
