Are we sure that's Hootie? Since his days with the Blowfish, Darius Rucker has transformed himself so much -- in appearance as well as music style -- you'd almost think he was someone else. Making his way through the crowd exchanging warm hugs en route to the stage, his dramatically slimmer physique was plainly evident. That scene in "Jerry Maguire" where the autograph-seeking kids walk up to Cuba Gooding Jr. and ask, "Are you Hootie?" Probably couldn't happen now.
