Synopsis

The Orange County band was formed in 1986 by Eric Stefani and John Spence who soon recruited Eric's younger sister Gwen as co-vocalist. With the addition of Tony Kanal on bass, No Doubt launched a 20-year career that would fuse ska, grunge, alt.rock and shades of other musical genres into a unique mix. The 1987 suicide of John Spence resulted in the battlefield promotion of Gwen Stefani to lead vocalist, a shift that would prove a launch pad for her future solo career and media celebrity status. Despite shifting line-up and the potential distraction of Stefani's solo career, "No Doubt" have stayed true to their mission to be musical and visual innovators. With contributions from former and current band members, collaborators, friends and critics, "Simple Kind Of Life" is the first major biography of "No Doubt".
