Huey Lewis and the News Still Seeking 'New Drug' on 'Kimmel'

Host sits in to help celebrate 30th anniversary of 'Sports' LP

By |

Huey Lewis and the News were still seeking that pharmacological fix last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where Kimmel joined the search party by sitting in with the horn section for "I Want a New Drug." Lewis cued in various instrumental parts and strutted around the stage between verses, generously offering Kimmel a handful of solo breaks that the host . . . well, he did he best. Probably. The rest of the band sizzled through the track from Lewis' breakout 1983 release Sports, which this week was reissued with bonus material to mark its 30th anniversary.
