Huey Lewis Caricature, illustrated here in 1983, age 33 for a photo shoot promoting his album “Sports”.
Lewis sings lead and plays harmonica for his band, Huey Lewis and the News, in addition to writing or co-writing many of the band’s songs.
Born in NYC in 1950 as Hugh Anthony Cregg III, Cregg changed his name to Huey Lewis in 1978.
Lewis previously played with the band Clover from 1972 to 1979.
After a failed self-titled debut in 1980, Huey Lewis And The News finally broke through to Top 40 success with the gold album Picture This (1982). It rose to No. 13 on the albums chart thanks to the Mutt Lange-penned “Do You Believe in Love” (No. 7), the band’s first hit.
The band’s third LP, Sports (1983), is one of the best-selling pop releases of all time. It became a No. 1 hit in 1984 and had multi-platinum success in 1985. Four singles from the album reached the top-10 of the Billboard Hot 100: “Heart and Soul” reached No. 8, while “I Want a New Drug,” “The Heart of Rock & Roll,” and “If This Is It” all reached No. 6.
His song “The Power of Love” was a No. 1 U.S. hit and was featured in the 1985 film Back to the Future, for which they also recorded the song, “Back in Time”.
They released their fourth studio album, Fore! in 1986. Fore! followed the success of Sports and reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The album spawned the No. 1 singles, “Stuck with You” and “Jacob’s Ladder” as well as the mainstream rock hit “Hip to Be Square”.
On April 13, 2018, Lewis announced that he had been diagnosed with Ménière’s disease, and that he “couldn’t hear well enough to sing”. As a result, the remaining shows scheduled for the 2018 tour were cancelled.
Lewis lives on a ranch near Stevensville, Montana.
