The story behind the band 3 Doors Down’s official name happening on a trip to Foley, Alabama actually came from a trip I took to Gulf Shores in August of ’89 on vacation. While looking for a place to eat breakfast, we traveled to Foley stopping at the Foley Coffee Shop. While talking to the waitress we found out that it was a family run business and her father had just passed away.
I make reference to the song I worked on for Prince & The Revolution’s ’84 Purple Rain album titled “Let’s Go Crazy”.
Eventually, drummer Daniel Adair would join my pet project, Nickelback, as drummer.
