Jayhawks Call It Quits After 2 Decades

Tue Feb 22, 4:01 PM ET Entertainment - AP Music



MINNEAPOLIS - The Jayhawks have apparently called it a day. Singer Gary Louris has confirmed that the alternative-country pioneers formed in Minneapolis two decades ago are no longer an active band.





"I don't think we're going to do anything else," Louris told the Star Tribune. "We felt like we've done that enough. Everybody just wants to do something else. We haven't completely closed the door, but ... I'd say it's dead."


A sold-out concert in Madison, Wis., on Saturday reunited Louris with singer Mark Olson, who quit the Jayhawks in 1995. The concert was part of a three-week tour.


Since their formation, the Jayhawks have issued five major-label albums that have sold about 1 million copies combined. Rolling Stone and Spin magazines listed the group's "Hollywood Town Hall" (1992) as one of the most essential albums of the 1990s.


Louris recently co-wrote new tunes with the Dixie Chicks (news - web sites) and appears eager to try other career directions, such as record production.


"When you're on the treadmill (with a full-time band), you never have time to learn anything else," he said. "I'm enjoying all these new experiences."

Yep, it's the same AP story that's on the wire and everyone's just picking it up.

It's not the article, it's the widespread pickup of it.

No, it's not. Yahoo picks up everything from the AP, which is affiliated with the star trib. That is all it is.

The most upsetting things about all of this for me is the news that Gary wrote some songs for the Dixie Chicks.

True. They've got good voices... the results might not be too horrible!
