Trout Fishing In America
Taking their name from the novel by Richard Brautigan, Trout Fishing in America formed in 1979 from the remnants of the Houston-based unit St. Elmo's Fire. An acoustic folk-rock duo comprised of vocalist/guitarist Ezra Idlet and vocalist/bassist Keith Grimwood, they earned their greatest success performing music for children, beginning with 1991's Big Trouble. In addition to their kid-friendly songwriting, the band also delighted children with their rather arresting physical appearance, which saw Idlet standing at a whopping 6'9" tall. Grimwood, meanwhile, remained roughly 14 inches shorter than his bandmate.
