Huey Lewis and the News were one of the most successful music bands of the 1980s. The Power of Love and Hip to be Square were two of their biggest hits and the 1983 album Sports sold more than ten million copies in the US alone. The band remains in great demand for live performances. Lewis is also an accomplished actor. He played Billy Flynn in the Broadway production of Chicago, and in Duets in 2000 he played Ricky Dean, the karaoke hustler father of the film’s star Gwyneth Paltrow. This is his ninth appearance in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. He is a member of Pauma Valley and Stockfarm golf clubs. Says he once holed a ball from the Road Hole bunker – by throwing it.
