Musician
    (November 23, 1954- )
    Frontman for 'Bruce Hornsby & the Range (1984-90)
    Recorded 'The Way It Is,' 'Mandolin Rain,' 'Every Little Kiss,' 'The Valley Road,' 'Look Out Any Window' and 'Across The River'
    Composed music for the movies 'Twice Upon A Time (1983),' 'Switch (1991),' 'Backdraft (1991),' 'Clockers (1995),' 'Tin Cup (1996)' and 'Bamboozled (2000)'
    In 1990, he disbanded the Range and went solo with less commercial success, which he claims was never important to him.
    His song 'The Way It Is' has been sampled by several rappers, including 2Pac and Mase.
    He is a distant relative of baseball Hall Of Famer Rogers Hornsby and sometimes performs concerts with a big bust of the ballplayer on his piano.
    He purchased a radio station in Williamsburg, VA, and established the 'Brunch with Bruce' segment so, in his words, 'my music could be heard on the radio in my hometown.'
    He did a killer Elton John tribute show as a young performer. When Elton found this out, he was amused and tells folks at parties they both attend, 'Guess how this fucker used to make a buck?'
    He scored a #1 hit on Billboard's Singles chart with 'The Way It Is,' the album by the same name went triple platinum and it helped earn him a 1987 Grammy for 'Best New Artist.'
    He has written Top 10 songs for Huey Lewis and Don Henley.
    He worked with Elton John, Sting, Phil Collins, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks, Warren Zevon and Chaka Khan.
    He toured with The Grateful Dead as a fill-in after the death of their keyboard player in 1990.
    He named his twin sons after two of his keyboard heroes; jazz musician Keith Jarrett and pop musician Leon Russell.
