    I saw this thread pop back up and I thought, "Shit. Who died?"

    You do know today is BTTF II day, right?

    Sports was the first album I remember hearing when I was 3 just after it came out. My dad had it on cassette and would play it constantly. Always loved them before Patrick Bateman made it "cool" to like the band. Love listening to them just to take me back to my childhood. They were kind of the Hootie and the Blowfish of their day if you think about it.

    Also, Huey Lewis is right up there with Sammy Hagar and Dave Grohl as one of the coolest, laid back guys in rock and roll.
    Between Twitter, Facebook, the rest of the internet, and my childhood, yes, I do know.

    Fore! is a great album.
    According to their twitter feed, they are going to be on Kimmel tonight (at least that's what I assume - they just said that you should tune in).

  • Huey Lewis tradition you've probably never heard before...

    My buddies and I are all graduates of the University of S Carolina. Before every home football game we listen the best of HLATN at our big tailgate party. We started about 10 years ago and we haven't missed a week since. It's become a big hit that our new friends anticipate when they come to party with us.

    With the celebration of Back to the Future... I had to listen to a few Huey Lewis CDs. I really like the band. If Marty McFly has Huey Lewis & The News 'Sports' poster on his bedroom wall, they MUST be good.

    Well, apparently the album is only 7 songs because that's when his other ear decided to fuck off.

    too bad.
