Glen Phillips (vocals/guitar), Todd Nichols (guitar/vocals), Dean Dinning (bass/vocals), and Randy Guss (drums) formed Toad the Wet Sprocket in 1986, having met while attending San Marcos High School in Santa Barbara. The group recorded five albums throughout the 1990's, securing four highly successful singles: "Walk on the Ocean," "Fall Down," "All I Want," and "Something's Always Wrong."
Since their official break up, Glen Phillips has released three EP's and four studio albums, one with his friends, Nickel Creek. Meanwhile, Lapdog recorded two studio albums, but disbanded in 2002 when Todd Nichols and Dean Dinning started writing songs for country acts in Nashville.
In 2010, Toad the Wet Sprocket announced their reunion. The band released a greatest hits album in April 2011, and Glen is currently working on new songs for their upcoming studio album in 2012.
