When top-class musicianship and great songwriting meet, the result can help to define an era. Such was the case with Spin Doctors' 'Pocket Full Of Kryptonite,' one of the biggest smashes of the 1990s, selling over 10 million copies worldwide. Featuring hit after hit, from 'Two Princes' to 'Little Miss Can't Be Wrong' and more, the original album reached #3 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart, made the magazine's Top 100 list of the Best-Selling Albums of The Decade, hit #2 in the UK and #1 in Australia and New Zealand, was certified 3x Platinum in Canada, Gold in Germany, France, Holland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Singapore, and cemented the group's debut as an international phenomenon. In fact, 'Two Princes' was the most-played rock song in the world in 1993, and was recently certified by BMI with 3 million international radio plays ('Little Miss' is at the 2 Million mark.)
As a live band, the core members of Spin Doctors (Chris Barron (lead vocals), Eric Schenkman (guitar), Mark White (bass), and Aaron Comess (drums),) are among the best in the business, a fact often overshadowed by their commercial success, but arguably more important than ever. Now, with the upcoming release of 'Pocket Full of Kryptonite: 20th Anniversary Edition,' Spin Doctors are hitting the road once again to do what they do best: perform great pop/rock songs for live audiences.? Like their H.O.R.D.E. allies Phish, Blues Traveler, Allman Brothers and more, and like The Black Crowes, Counting Crows and other respected contemporaries, Spin Doctors are a reminder that hits and chops needn't be mutually exclusive.
