no doubt Biography
The American rock band No Doubt was formed in 1986 in Anaheim, California. Current band members include Gwen Stefani (lead vocalist), Tom Dumont (keyboards, guitar), Tony Kanal (keyboards, bass) and Adrian Young (percussion, drums). “No Doubt,” their first album which featured a ska-pop sound, was released in 1992 but was not successful. The band's 1995 diamond-certified set “Tragic Kingdom” helped revive ska during the 1990s. The third single off that album, “Don't Speak,” was No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay chart for a record setting sixteen weeks.
In 2000, No Doubt released “Return of Saturn.” The album was only mildly successful commercially despite “Simple Kind of Life,” their top 40 hit song. However, the album did receive widespread critical praise and received a Grammy nomination as Best Rock Album. In 2001, “Rock Steady” was released, which incorporated dancehall music and reggae into their music. Most of the album was recorded in Jamaica with collaborations with Jamaican musicians such as Lady Saw, Sly and Robbie and Bounty Killer. The album spawned two singles that won Grammy awards, “Underneath It All” and “Hey Baby.”
In 2003, No Doubt released “The Singles 1992-2003,” a compilation album, and “Boom Box,” a box set. In 2004, Gwen Stefani, the band's front womann, launched a solo career and collaborated with several artists, including Tony Kanal and The Neptunes' Pharrell Williams. Guitarist Tom Dumont started Invincible Overlord, a side project. No Doubt, over the course of their career have sold over 30 million worldwide albums to date and won two Grammys.
