- His music: power-pop that doesn’t skimp on the power or the pop; wistful ballads; alternative rock with such broad appeal, it should just be called “everyday people rock”
- His voice: with a range that ranges from a slinky R&B purr to a gale force rock ‘n roll bellow, Thomas is the rare singer born with six-pack abs on his larynx
- When you met him: most likely in 1996, when Matchbox Twenty’s debut album went 12x Platinum due to Rob-powered hits such as “Push” and “3 A.M.”
- When Rob first found solo glory: with “Smooth,” the aptly-named 1999 collaboration with Santana that earned Rob three Grammy awards and ranks #2 on Billboard’s “Hot 100 All-Time Top Songs”
- What’s new with Rob: a brand new album entitled The Great Unknown, featuring the synth-poppy new single, “Trust You,” co-written with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder
- What to expect: Rob says he’ll “be playing some of the new stuff, some of the old stuff — a little bit of everything”
Plain White T’s
- The year Plain White T’s formed: 1997
- The Chicago suburb where they started their catchy ruckus: Lombard
- The sound: hook-heavy power pop and plaintive, heart-tugging balladry
- Number one: where their hit, “Hey There Delilah,” reached on the Billboard Hot 100
- Delilah DiCrescenzo: the track star whom “Hey There Delilah” was written for
- What she got out of it: a trip to the Grammys, a personal theme song she probably sings everywhere
- Two: the number of Grammy nominations “Hey There Delilah” earned
- American Knights: the latest Plain White T’s album
- Hits you’ll probably hear: “Rhythm of Love,” “Hate (I Really Don’t Like You),” and, of course, “Hey There Delilah”
