Matchbox Twenty

OK.  So for most of you from the UK, it's like who?  Well here is a quick low down courtesy of the official webpage www.matchboxtwenty.com.

"Since making their debut, Matchbox Twenty has become one of the most admired and consistently successful rock bands in recent history, with over 20 million albums sold worldwide.  Named as the "Best New Band" in the 1997 Rolling Stone Readers Poll, they have since moved from accomplishment to accomplishment, clearly establishing themselves as an exceptional unit, both in the studio and on stage.

More Than You Think You Are" follows the RIAA quadruple-platinum Mad Season by Matchbox Twenty, released in May 2000. Matchbox Twenty made their recording debut in 1996 with Yourself Or Someone Like You, which earned the RIAA's prestigious Diamond Award and has been certified 12X platinum in the US alone.

Matchbox Twenty has logged an extraordinary string of hit singles, including such chart-topping favorites as "Push," "3AM," "Real World," "Back 2 Good," "If You're Gone," "Mad Season," and the #1 Billboard "Hot 100" smash, "Bent." In addition, Rob Thomas has received a number of songwriting honors, including: three Grammy Awards; a remarkable 11 BMI Awards - including 1999 BMI Pop Songwriter of the Year and 2002 BMI Pop Song of the Year (for "If You're Gone"); and Billboard Songwriter of the Year honors for two years running."

Guitarist Gaynor Splits matchbox twenty and Rob goes solo!!!

Adam Gaynor, one of matchbox twenty's longtime guitarists, is no longer with the band. No reason was given for the split. "The band has decided not to renew his sevices," a source tells Billboard.com. The group is presently on hiatus as several members are tackling solo projects.

Chief among them is lead singer Rob Thomas's solo debut, "Something To Be," which is due in late April/early May via Atlantic. The set sports a guest spot by John Mayer on guitar on an as-yet-unnamed track "Something To Be" will feature production by Virgin chairman/CEO Matt Serletic, who has worked regularly with matchbox twenty since its 1996 debut, "Yourself or Someone Like You."
