ROB THOMAS (ALL the photos are taken by me)
Of course the big NY is full of new artists, but this one in particular has an extensive number of fans lined up to buy his new CD. Hit single "her diamonds" already seems to arouse "Top 20" songs on MTV Saturday mornings. The name's Rob Thomas. Inside Bloomingdales on 59st Lexington, 3rd Av. were stacks of Cd's being sold to sign. Sound familiar back in the days of Matchbox Twenty? In the days or 1999, "Thomas earned three Grammy awards for co-writing and singing on the Carlos Santana triple-platinum hit "Smooth" on the album Supernatural." Year 2004 he earned his first Starlight Award granted by the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. And now he's back working successfully on his third album "Cradelsong" overall earning over 9 singles since leaving his band career as lead singer of Matchbox Twenty onto an alternative rock solo artist.
