Matchbox Twenty are: Rob Thomas, Paul Doucette, Kyle Cook and Brian Yale.
Matchbox Twenty was named Best New Band in the 1997 Rolling Stone Readers Poll, and they followed the enormous success of 'Yourself...' with two more multi-platinum sets -- 2000's 'Mad Season By Matchbox Twenty' and 2002's 'More Than You Think You Are.' Among their many accolades are five Grammy nominations and three American Music Award nominations, while Rob Thomas has earned three Grammy Awards, 11 BMI Awards, and has been twice named Billboard's Songwriter of the Year.
'I still hear '3am' on the radio at an alarming rate,' says Thomas. And that suits him and his band mates just fine. 'Listen, my goal in life is to be this weathered guy who everybody's like, 'Oh, I grew up listening to you.' I think that's the coolest thing in the world.'
So, unexpectedly but happily for everyone, the members of Matchbox Twenty are now focused on their future together. The band is looking forward to its first tour in four years, along with the prospect of a full album of all-new material down the line.
'We're all excited. It's a good place to be,' Thomas says. 'We feel more like a band than we've ever felt.'
