Biography


Matchbox 20 were Tabitha's Secret before Rob Thomas, Brian Yale, and Paul Doucette parted ways with John Stanley and John Goff and recruited new members. The threesome snatched Adam Gaynor from Criteria Recording Studios in Miami and Kyle Cook from the Atlanta Institute of Music, and formed Matchbox 20 which are based in Orlando, Florida.

Under Atlantic Records, they released their debut album "Yourself or Someone Like You" in 1996. It was not through the first single that the band launched into stardom but the following singles such as "Push", "3 A.M.", "Real World", and "Back 2 Good". Matchbox 20 soon became one of the most popular rock bands in the late '90s. The album was sold more that 12 million copies in the U.S. alone.
