Music Monday: Dr. Hook

Dr. Hook (and the Medicine Show) was formed in 1968. They changed (or, to be more exact, shortened their name) in 1975, becoming just "Dr. Hook"). Founder Ray Sawyer wore an eye patch and called himself Hook. Their style was rock parody and country-pop and they initially recorded many Shel Silverstein songs. They eventually went on to write their own songs.

They broke up in 1985, though Sawyer revived the band name in 1988 with new band members.

They had a top ten hit with Cover of The Rolling Stone, which somehow led a year later to an actual Rolling Stone cover!
