Alternative rock bands- 3 Doors Down members
The Escatawpa, Mississippi USA-based Alternative-Rock outfit 3 Doors Down was formed in the second half of the '90s and originally comprised of members vocalist+drummer Brad Arnold, guitarists Matt Roberts and Chris Henderson and bassist Todd Harrell.
In 1997 the foursome released a demo CD and signed with Universal Records; when the band's line-up was solidified with the addition of drummer Richard Liles, 3 Doors Down recorded their official debut full-lenght disc, "The Better Life", which was finally issued in February 2000; the album became a surprise hit reaching the #7 spot on The Billboard Top 200 chart and spawning three #1s Mainstream Rock singles: the omnipresent "Kryptonite" also peaked at #1 on The Modern Rock chart and hit #3 on The Billboard Hot 100, "Loser" rose to #2 on The Modern Rock chart and "Duck And Run" completed the string of Active Rock chart-topping singles; "Be Like That" entered the top 10 on the same chart, propelling the album to double-platinum sales status.
In the fall of 2002, after Daniel Adair joined as new drummer, the band released their second album, "Away From The Sun", which rose to #8 on The Billboard Top 200, its first single, "When I'm Gone", quickly bulleted into the Billboard Magazine charts peaking at #1 on both Mainstream and Modern Rock radio and reaching the #4 position on the Hot 100 Sales list; the follow-up single, "The Road I'm On", hit the top 10 of the Active Rock chart, the title-track blew top 20 on the same chart and the magnificent ballad "Here Without You", soared to #5 on The Billboard Hot 100.
Universal Republic Rock icons released "Seventeen Days" in February 2005, the disc went straight to #1 on The Billboard 200 and to #6 on the Top Canadian Albums charts; the first single, "Let Me Go", peaked at #6 on The Mainstream Rock chart, reached #14 on The Modern Rock Tracks and equaled the peak position on the Hot 100 Sales side. That same year ex-Puddle Of Mudd drummer Greg Upchurch was hired to replace Adair, who left to join Nickelback. The CD offered two more Active Rock radio top 20 hits "Behind Those Eyes" and "Live For Today", the minor hit "Here By Me" as well as the Mainstream Rock top 40 track "Landing In London" featuring guest backing vocals by Bob Seger.
