Biography » music bands groups » the wallflowers


The Wallflowers have existed as two different bands, both helmed by lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter Jakob Dylan. Dylan, guitarist Tobi Miller, keyboard player Rami Jaffee, bass player Barrie Maguire, and drummer Peter Yanowitz formed the band in 1990 and released an unsuccessful album, The Wallflowers, in 1992. Dylan then put together a new group, including Jaffee but replacing other members with Michael Ward on guitar, Greg Richling on bass, and Matt Chamberlain on drums. They signed with Interscope and recorded the Grammy-winning Bringing Down the Horse (1996), which contained the single “One Headlight.” Mario Calire replaced Chamberlain after recording on this album was finished.
