Rob Thomas Biography
Rob Thomas was the singer and principal songwriter for Matchbox
Twenty, a Florida-based adult alternative combo that found success with
a blend of '70s rock influences, slick hooks, and 1990s post-grunge
crunch. The band broke through in 1996 with Push and never looked
back, issuing single after single, scoring hits in various radio
formats, and watching its debut LP, Yourself or Someone Like You, go
platinum 12 times over in the U.S. Thomas himself won numerous
songwriting awards as the scribe of such Matchbox hits as Real World,
If You're Gone, Bent, and Mad Season, and parlayed that success
into a career as a solo artist.
Rob Thomas was born February 14, 1972, on an Army base in Landstuhl,
Germany. His parents divorced, and the ex-Army brat spent most of his
childhood in South Carolina and Florida. He dropped out of high school
at 17, and bounced around the South singing in pickup rock bands before
landing in Orlando in 1993. There he helped form Tabitha's Secret, and
the group had some regional success before Thomas, bassist Brian Yale,
and drummer Paul Doucette left to form Matchbox Twenty with guitarists
Adam Gaynor and Kyle Cook. Their debut, Yourself or Someone Like You,
had gone five times platinum by 1998, and it established them as
superstars even if Thomas wasn't individually well known.
That all changed with a song he co-wrote for the Carlos Santana album
Supernatural. Smooth was ubiquitous in 1999, and it made Thomas a
star. The track took home three Grammys including Song of the Year, and
Thomas landed on People's Most Beautiful People list. He also married
model Marisol Maldonado. Mad Season (2000) and More Than You Think You
Are (2002) continued Matchbox Twenty's success, but after years of
touring for both records, the bandmembers decided they needed a break,
and Thomas used the hiatus to write and record his first solo album.
When Lonely No More debuted in early 2005, its sleek and funky
dance-pop sound was closer to Justin Timberlake than Matchbox, and it
set up the April release of the chart-topper Something to Be. ~ Johnny
