Huey Lewis and the News:
Huey Lewis & the News were a bar band that made good. With their simple, straightforward rock & roll, the San Francisco-based group became one of America's most popular bands of the mid '80s.
Inspired equally by British pub rock, '60s R&B and rock & roll, the News had a driving spirit that made songs like "Workin' for a Livin'," "I Want a New Drug," "The Heart of Rock & Roll," "Hip to Be Square" and "The Power of Love" yuppie anthems.
At their core, the group were a working band, and they knew how to target their audience, writing odes to 9-to-5 jobs and sports. As the decade progressed, the group smoothed out their sound to appeal to the aging baby boomers who adopted them. The group has remained a popular concert attraction, as they continue to have their hits played on adult contemporary radio stations.
