Music alternative rock You Am I band picture (pic) and photo gallery, albums covers pictures.
Formed: 1989 in Australia.
You Am I is an Australian alternative rock band, fronted by vocalist/guitarist and main songwriter Tim Rogers. They were the first Australian band to have three albums successively debut at #1 on the ARIA Charts and are renowned for their live act.
You Am I Members:
-Tim Rogers (vocals/guitar).
-Davey Lane (guitar).
-Andy Kent (bass).
-Rusty Hopkinson (drums).
Tim Rogers formed the first version of You Am I with his school friend Nick Tischler and his older brother Jaimme in 1989. The band's name was derived from late-night sessions under the influence of alcohol. This line-up was short-lived and by the end of 1990 both Nick and Jaimme had left the band.
After the release of their first album, Tunaley and the band parted ways. He was replaced by Russell Hopkinson, creating the core line-up of You Am I to the present day.
Further success for You Am I came with the albums Hi Fi Way and Hourly, Daily, with both picking up ARIA Awards.
Subtle country influences were apparent on their 1998 #4 Record."
After an album absence prolonged by touring and record label interference, Dress Me Slowly was released April 2001.
You Am I released Deliverance in 2002, but did not enjoy the commercial success that You Am I's earlier work had enjoyed.
In late 2005, You Am I recorded their seventh studio album entitled Convicts with producer Greg Wales.
