No Doubt is a popular band from California, which is famous for such hits as “Don’t Speak” and “It’s My Life”. The group works with several genres, including ska-punk, new wave, alternative rock, and more. No Doubt was formed in 1986 when a group of young musicians started conquering the hearts of new fans with unusual musical experiments.
The band's founders were Eric Stefani and John Spence. Musicians initially called the group Apple Core. Eric was a keyboard player while John had strong vocals. The two artists were always looking for new band members. That’s how Gwen Stefani, Eric’s younger sister, joined the band. She became a back vocalist. The trio performed at local nightclubs and on small stages. Initially, they sang covers for other artists’ songs but often added their own work to the repertoire.
Tony Kanal joined the band in 1987. He began promoting the group. Everyone understood that artists had an excellent future. However, suddenly, John Spence committed suicide. It threw the band back and affected each member. The remaining artists renamed the band to No Doubt. It was Spence’s favorite saying.
