The Orange County Register has made a slide show of the 101 top Orange County Celebrities of All-Time. Of course No Doubt & Gwen made the list!
No. 15. No Doubt, which came out of Anaheim, was the biggest band of the late ’90s and early ’00s to come out of Orange County, with huge album sales and concerts, and the music of the quartet proving it wasn’t just the Gwen Stefani show. Fans were ecstatic when the group regrouped for tours more recently.
No. 3. Gwen Stefani is just a girl from Orange County who struck it big, first through the group No Doubt, then as a solo artist, then as a fashion icon, designer, celebrity mother and wife, and so forth and so on. She doesn’t live here anymore, and at times seems to be teetering on “I’m Madonna with an English accent” affectations, but we think she’s still just a girl and that’s just fine.
