Blues Traveler

A New York-based blues-rock quartet formed in 1988 by singer/harmonica player John Popper, guitarist Chan Kinchla, bassist Bobby Sheehan, and drummer Brendan Hill, Blues Traveler were part of a revival of the extended jamming style of '60s and '70s groups like the Grateful Dead and Led Zeppelin. Signed to A&M, they released their first album, Blues Traveler, in May 1990 and followed it with Travelers & Thieves in September 1991. Popper was in a serious car accident in 1992, leaving him unable to perform for a number of months. Fortunately, he recovered, yet he still had to perform in a wheelchair for a period of time. In April 1993, Blues Traveler released their third album, Save His Soul, which became the band's first to make the Top 100.

Blues Traveler's aptly named fourth album, Four, released in September 1994, at first looked like a sales disappointment, but it rebounded in 1995 when "Run-Around," a single taken from it, became the group's first chart hit. "Run-Around" became one of the biggest singles of 1995, spending nearly a full year on the charts and sending Four into quintuple platinum status. As the group prepared the follow-up to Four, Blues Traveler released the live double-album Live from the Fall in the summer of 1996. The group returned in the summer of 1997 with its fifth studio album, Straight on Till Morning. After completing his 1999 debut solo effort, Zygote, Popper -- who'd been experiencing chest pains for months -- was forced to undergo an angioplasty; weeks later, tragedy struck on August 20, 1999, when Sheehan was found dead in his New Orleans home. He was just 31 years old.

The new millennium saw a newly charged Blues Traveler, and their sixth record, Bridge, appeared in May 2001. The next winter, Blues Traveler released the live What You and I Have Been Through. The studio record Truth Be Told followed in 2003, and another concert album, Live on the Rocks, appeared in 2004. The group returned to the studio in 2004, releasing the Jay Bennett-produced Bastardos! in September of the following year. In 2007, Blues Traveler released Cover Yourself, a collection of previous hits reworked with acoustic arrangements. The David Bianco-produced North Hollywood Shootout appeared from Verve Forecast in 2008. In March 2012, the band released 25, a two-disc set (one disc of hits and key tracks and a second disc of B-sides, demos, and rarities) celebrating the group's 25th anniversary. It was followed in June by Suzie Cracks the Whip, the group's 11th studio album, which was produced by S*A*M & Sluggo, and featured guest spots from Ron Sexsmith, Chris Barron (Spin Doctors), and Crystal Bowersox. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

blues travelers, awesome.
I remember listening to this song with my older brother
My hubby and I love
BLUES TRAVELER!!
Blues Traveler was one of the best commerically successful bands I've seen live this past decade, saw them in a smallish venue- loved how the band engaged with the audience, esp Popper. Smallish venue in Lawrence, KS, early 2000s, following Sheehans's death and Popper's heart trouble. (And I think before his run in with the law, but being from KS, we are more understandin g about gun nuts, lol). It was like going to see your friend's band play, in a way. Only holy crap, these guys are famous. Bee

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

Great group that kind of came & went
actually it's 1987
I love their unique sound. AWESOME sound live! Canadian Rose gives me goose bumps every time I hear it.
Typo in the first line of the Bio.... Blues Traveler was NOT formed in 1988... perhaps 1968?
harmonica and piano please...
bring back the harmonica??
Best Live band ever!
Doesn't eminate as a NY based band and not too close to Dead or Zeppelin either. Sounds more like a band fromsomewher e like NC and the instrumental s sound very generic. Bring back the harmonica!
This is a great synopsis of the band's history, but you forgot one key fact. Blues Traveler is the Best. Band. Ever. :)
Just saw them live in Albuquerque this week. Popper certainly gives 100%! Chan sure looked like he enjoyed himself up there, too. Such a good time. :)

Can't wait they until visit Boston. Hope they play Mountain Cry and Carolina Blues and let Popper just rock out.
But Anyway is the s**t... Wish that was played more often.

If you only know/like Blues Traveller's songs that made the radio, you are missing out on their very best -- check track 10->into->11 from the debut Blues Traveller/Bl u e s Traveller . . . the songs Alone & Sweet Talkin' Hippie bridge into each other and form the best 15+ minutes of blues rock ever (IMO, of course).
why cant I find that song The hook?
Hook is my THEME Song!
Hook is my fav song!!!!
