Ranking the hot hookups of Adam Duritz

By / 11.12.12

We’ve spent a lot of time chronicling the dating histories of actors and sports stars, but haven’t delved too deeply into musicians so today I thought we’d take a look at Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz’s impressive list of alleged girlfriends. Growing up it always seemed that sports stars and musicians always got the women, but is that the case with Adam? And how does he compare with all the actors and athletes we’ve profiled? Read on to find out.

Monica Potter (Date unclear)

Probably happened around 2000 since the song he wrote called “Mrs. Potter’s Lullaby” was about her and was released in 1999.

Hookup score: 9.0
Bonus points for getting a date with a beautiful actress in this manner.

Winona Ryder (1994-1995)

Research on this one ranges from him saying they never dated to them dating for about a year. Thanks a lot, Internet.

Hookup score: 8.5
This was pretty much at the height of her career so a bonus half a point.

Jennifer Aniston (1995)

Pretty darn sure these two actually dated although Duritz has been quoted as saying that they “never even slept together” so it must not have lasted too long.

Hookup score: 9.0
Would have been higher if not for, you know, the fact that he admitted not sleeping with her.

Courteney Cox (1997)

Friends star #2!! Duritz and Cox dated after she appeared in his group’s video for the song “A Long December.”

Hookup score: 9.0
I guess if you don’t sleep with one of them it’s okay to date the other.

Mary-Louise Parker (1997-1998)

This might have happened in 1996-1997 (like that matters), but it did happen and the two remain good friends.

Hookup score: 8.5
She wasn’t nearly as famous as she is now, but still, not bad.

Samantha Mathis (2004-2005)

Long gap between famous ladies here for some reason, ending with the woman made famous by the film Pump Up the Volume.

Hookup score: 8.0
Again, not much information on this relationship and between 2000 and 2004 she didn’t make a single film.

Emmy Rossum (2009-2010)

He was 45 year-old Adam Duritz and she was 23 year-old Emmy Rossum. ‘Nuff said.

Hookup score: 10.0
See above.

Other less-substantiated alleged flings: Christina Applegate, Trishelle Cannatella, Lara Flynn Boyle, Gwen Stefani
