The Lovin' Spoonful was an American pop rock band of the 1960s, named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. The band's name was inspired by some lines in a song of Mississippi John Hurt called the "Coffee Blues". John Sebastian credits Fritz Richmond for suggesting the name. When asked about his band, Sebastian said it sounded like a combination of "Mississippi John Hurt and Chuck Berry". The Lovin' Spoonful became part of the American response to the British Invasion.
