For a minute, it looked as if he had eclipsed his buddies. Rob Thomas, the boyish-faced frontman of supergroup Matchbox Twenty, helped fuel Santana's meteoric 1999 comeback with "Smooth," the ubiquitous No. 1 single taken from the guitar legend's multi-Grammy-winning album Supernatural. Thomas wrote and pushed his idiosyncratic vocals across the festive hit. The man (and his love life) was splashed in magazines, on MTV. You almost forgot that he leads one of the most commercially successful rock bands of the last decade.

Giovanni Dolermo grew up in Italy, the country of Ferrari, sports car racing and art. He has carried those passions into adulthood, passing them along to his son. Those passions - along with his talent and hard work - brought him last year to Maryland, where he and his son, Andrea, are the artisan owners of DVA Dolermo Models Inc., of Reisterstown. They make 1/43 scale models of sports cars - Ferraris, Lolas, Fiat-Abarths - that have long competed in world-class endurance races. These aren't the Matchbox cars found on toy-store shelves.

It doesn't matter whether you listen to pop, rock or country -- Rob Thomas' songs are inescapable. There's the tune he co-wrote with Mick Jagger, "Visions of Paradise," for Jagger's 2001 solo album, Goddess in the Doorway. There's "Maria (Shut Up and Kiss Me)," which Thomas wrote for Willie Nelson's 2002 album The Great Divide. Let's not forget "Smooth," Thomas' Grammy-winning contribution to Santana's Supernatural album in 1999. Oh, and he fronts Matchbox Twenty, a band that has sold more than 15 million records since 1996.

Just as parents talk about the "terrible twos," folks in the record business like to go on about the horrors of "the second album." Any time a band makes a big splash with its debut, it seems as if everyone in the industry expects the follow-up album to fall victim to "sophomore slump." It's almost as if the only suspense is over just how badly the band will stumble. All of which leaves me wondering whether Matchbox Twenty didn't skip straight to album No. 3. Because not only does "Mad Season by Matchbox Twenty" (LavaAtlantic 83302, arriving in stores today)

From a fan's perspective, Matchbox Twenty's "Yourself or Someone Like You" was one of the most successful debuts of the '90s. Since its release in 1996, the album has sold more than 10 million copies, thanks to such hits as "Push" and "3 a.m." But as singer Rob Thomas explains, he and his band-mates saw that first album primarily as an experiment. "We made what we like to call a hypothetical record," he says during a telephone interview from the band's rehearsal studio in Atlanta. In fact, as Thomas sees it, "Mad Season by Matchbox Twenty," the band's sophomore release, due in record stores Tuesday, is the first real Matchbox Twenty album.
