Biography

New York, United States (1989 – present)

The Spin Doctors is a group from New York, USA, best known for its 1992 hits, “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong”, which charted at #7 & #17 on the chart, respectively. The album that included those songs, ‘Pocket Full Of Kryptonite’, sold poorly until MTV and radio began playing those singles. The album eventually went gold, receiving another boost in sales after the band appeared on Saturday Night Live in October 1992, and it ultimately sold five million copies in the U.S., peaking at #3 on the Billboard top 200 album chart. The band also made an appearance on ‘Sesame Street’, singing a modified version of “Two Princes” that emphasized the importance of sharing.

The current members are Chris Barron (lead vocals), Anthony Krizan (guitar and vocals), Aaron Comess (drums) and Mark White (bass). The history of the Spin Doctors can be traced back to the late in New York City, originally as a band called Trucking Company, which included Canadian guitarist Eric Schenkman, John Popper, and later Chris Barron. Barron was John Popper’s Princeton, New Jersey high school friend. Popper left this side project to focus on his main gig with rock group Blues Traveler full time. With a name change to Spin Doctors, as well as the addition of Aaron Comess and Mark White, the classic lineup was in place by the spring of 1989.

Recorded from August to December 1990 at both the famous Power Station studio in NYC as well as the RPM Studios, NYC and ACME Recording Studios Inc.

    Yeah the musicianship is extremely good. 1st albums pretty fun and upbeat but I don't know what's wrong with that... I LOVED this band and listened to them a lot as a toddler, like literally around the age of 2 and 3. Now I'm 24 and still have an appreciation for it. Not many people can say that about the artists they liked when they were 2 & 3 years of age, LOL

    Really good band, a little bit underrated in my opinion. I think this is what happens when a band has one or two very successful songs early in their career. The companies always want more and more, and the bands usually are forced to write and record new material with no the appropiate time.

    "Two Princes" will always be one of those songs that remind me of the 1990s as well as my childhood.

    Every time I hear one of their songs on the radio I want to barricade the doors of an orphanage and burn it to the ground and snort the ashes.
