1970 – Brendan Hill (Blues Traveler) is born this day in rock history!
Brendan Hill is one of the original members of Blues Traveler. In 1983, while attending school at Princeton High School in Borough of Princeton, New Jersey, Hill met Blues Traveler harmonica player John Popper. Together, they formed the predecessor to Blues Traveler, Blues Band. This band played mostly at parties and saw numerous bassists and guitarists come and go. In 1987, with the addition of Chan Kinchla on guitar and Bobby Sheehan on bass, they officially renamed themselves “Blues Traveler”. After graduating from Princeton High School, Brendan (along with John and Bobby) enrolled in The New School for Social Research to study music.
