365. Gin Blossoms
It always seemed like the Gin Blossoms were going to become much bigger. They had a sweet blend of Adult Alternative, Power Pop and a hint of the R.E.M. vibe. They did well for a bit and they cracked the radio dials on the lighter side of the Alternative spectrum; which in retrospect should have resulted in even more airplay. After they had an album of mixed reviews, they disbanded with little fanfare. The Gin Blossoms delivered some songs that will still likely have a sound that could appeal to future generations, but a career of “how come they weren’t bigger” does not scream Hall of Fame.
