Although The Wallflowers
began as a rootsy pop-rock band, they evolved into little more than a backing
band led by singer/songwriter and guitarist Jakob Dylan. Originally coalescing
in the Los Angeles music scene of the late 1980s, the band’s initial lineup consisted
of Dylan (son of the legendary Bob Dylan), guitarist Tobi Miller, bassist
Barrie Maguire, drummer Peter Yanowitz, and keyboard player Rami Jaffee. Their
self-titled debut LP didn’t garner much success, but it did allow them to open
for headliners such as Spin Doctors. Maguire, Miller, and Janowitz all exited
the band before the recording of 1996’s Bringing Down the Horse, which
proved to be the act’s breakthrough thanks to the singles “One Headlight”
and “Sixth Avenue Heartache”. They scored another hit with a cover of
David Bowie’s “Heroes” recorded for the soundtrack to Godzilla.
2000’s (Breach), which featured more personal songs from Dylan, underperformed
in terms of sales and chart success. 2002’s Red Letter Days would be the
last album with Rami Jaffee and reach number 32 on the chart, almost twenty
spots lower than (Breach). A tour followed 2005’s Rebel, Sweetheart
and then a long hiatus that ended with recording session for what became 2012’s
Glad All Over. For that album, Jakob Dylan collaborated musically with
the band more closely than he had in the past. The album peaked at number 48 and
led to a tour as well as several shows with Eric Clapton. Dylan announced that
going forward he would be using The Wallflowers name for his solo work. In 2021
they released Exit Wounds, a collection of songs written during the
COVID-19 pandemic.
