Huey Lewis is an American singer, songwriter and actor who has a net worth of $20 million dollars. Huey Lewis played in several bands after dropping out of college his junior year to concentrate fully on music. He was born in New York but spend most of his childhood and adult life in the Bay Area, specifically Marin County, California. The band he eventually formed "Huey Lewis and the News" was one of the most popular musical groups of the 1980s. The band had dozens of hit singles and a series of extremely popular music videos. The band's 1983 album "Sports" sold over 10 million albums worldwide making it one of the most popular pop albums of all time. "Sports" featured four top ten hit songs and would go on to be the second best album of 1984, behind Michael Jackson's "Thriller". Huey Lewis and the News' next album "Fore!" was another multi-platinum release. "Fore!" contained five top 10 singles and was number one on the Billboard charts. Arguably, the bands most famous song was "Power of Love". The song was featured prominently throughout the blockbuster movie "Back to the Future". HL&N also wrote and performed an original song called "Back in Time" for the second Back to the Future Movie. Huey Lewis is also an actor who has appeared in movies like "Duets" with Gweneth Paltrow, "Short Cuts" and "Sphere". He also made a brief cameo in the first Back to the Future movie as a band audition judge. In the movie, Marty plays an early version of "Power of Love" for his audition. Lewis, playing a judge, cuts Marty off early into the audition with the now famous line "You're just too darn loud". Interestingly, when the scene was actually filmed, the song had not been fully written or recorded yet. Huey and the band had to provide Michael J Fox with an early sample of what would become a very famous riff. Huey Lewis is still very popular today, touring internationally throughout the year.
