A. The Philosopher Kings are a Canadian band who were most commercially successful in the late 1990s. The name of the band is derived from Plato’s Republic, in which he outlines the design of an idealistic government, ruled by philosopher-kings.
Gerald Eaton, along with Jason and Jon Levine formed The Philosopher Kings in the early 1990’s to break the sterile atmosphere of the music school they attended. Their first album came out in 1994 and contained the hit ‘Charms’, which quickly reached the Top Ten in Canada and the Top 40 in the US. 1997 was their real breakout year however, when they released three hit singles, ‘Hurts To Love You’, ‘Cry’ (a remake of the Godley and Creme song) and ‘You Don’t Love Me’. Once you have heard the Kings, you will always recognize them by the powerful voice of Eaton.
