Released as the lead single of the album August and Everything After on 1 December 1993, the song Mr. Jones was the Counting Crows’ first radio hit. With a tempo of 120 bpm, the song is about the struggling musicians who want to be big stars.
Steve Bowman also known as The Skin Doctor, was a founding member and the drummer for the band Counting Crows during the recording of their debut album August and Everything After. In the late 1994, Bowman left the group, and in the next few years he joined the Third Eye Blind, John Wesley Harding, and Penelope Houston.
Drummer since a few years now, I devote very quickly to the teaching of drums and percussions in music school or private school. In parallel, I play for artists, I develop projects for events. In 2012, I launched the Web Music School project to encourage my students to take an interest in their instrument when they leave their class.
