About The Lovin' Spoonful

The Lovin' Spoonful is an American rock band of the 1960s, named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. When asked about his band, leader John Sebastian said it sounded like a combination of 'Mississippi John Hurt and Chuck Berry,' prompting his friend, Fritz Richmond, to suggest the name 'Lovin' Spoonful' from a line in Hurt's song, 'Coffee Blues'.
