GinBlossomsNewMiserableExperience

New Miserable Experience is the breakthrough album by the pop-rock band the Gin Blossoms, released on August 4, 1992. The album was released to little fanfare and relatively lackluster reviews. However, nearly a year after its release the lead single, “Hey Jealousy”, entered the top 40, with “Found Out About You” following a few months later. The album eventually reached multi-platinum status.

The band’s guitarist, Doug Hopkins, was fired near the conclusion of the recording sessions for the album, ostensibly for his persistent alcohol problems. His replacement, Scott Johnson, is listed as a member of the band in the liner notes, but did not play on the album. Just as the album was becoming a success at the end of 1993, Hopkins committed suicide. (from Wikipedia) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Miserable_Experience
