Dr. Hook (& The Medicine Show) were formed in Union City, New Jersey, USA in 1968. The original lineup consisted of Ray Sawyer, Dennis Locorierre, Bill Francis, John David and George Cummings - although there were countless lineup changes over the years.

Two years after Sawyer left in 1983 the band split up. Since then Sawyer has begun touring as "Dr Hook featuring Ray Sawyer" and Locorierre has also promoted himself as "The voice of Dr Hook".

  • Dr Hook (& The Medicine Show) finally did make it on the cover of Rolling Stone' Can't recall the date & year, I'd say mid 70s. But as it turned out, they were only drawn cartoonish caricatures put on the front cover. Ray Sawyer ---> ( # __ * ) Oh well...... they made mucho $$$ on the record.
  • CDPETE01 The reason they disappered was due to the loss of Shel Silverstein, the brains and writer of the majority of their music. Shel was a fantastic man who wrote great books for kids that are worth reading. They were different from any other 70's band, great stuff in my mind
  • they were around throughout the 70s but then just seemed to disappear.
  • Want to see my smiling face on the cover of the Rolling Stone.
