Hootie & the Blowfish are remembered for two things: making millions off of their dull, G-rated 90′s rock music and being totally goody-goody and scandal free. But oh, how both those things have changed! We came across this little tidbit today and couldn’t resist posting it: apparently drummer Jim Sonefeld (aka the long-haired awkward dude) just married the ex-wife of guitarist Mark Bryan (the curly-haired awkward dude). A-ma-zing.
The band officially broke up in August, 2008, which means that Jim was probably boning Mark’s ex while playing alongside him in the band. Lead singer Darius Rucker - who’s now a big star on the country scene - recently said about their split: “There are some things going on with Hootie,” which could totally be a reference to the wife-swap. But really, Jim just wants to love Mark’s wife the best that, the best that he can. We should probably lay off.
