From humble beginnings in Phoenix, Arizona to the streets of San Francisco The Tubes were catapulted into Rock and Roll’s limelight in the mid 1970’s and made their most memorable mark on Rock history throughout the ‘70’s and ‘80’s with such classic rock staples as White Punks On Dope, What Do You Want From Life, Mondo Bondage, Don’t Touch Me There, Sushi Girl, Talk To Ya Later and their Number 1 Billboard hit She’s A Beauty.
No matter how memorable The Tubes recordings were, the lifeline of the band has always been their live performance. From the exuberant and imaginative to the outrageous, The Tubes continue to perform for hordes of fans throughout the world.
The current line up of The Tubes (still retaining four original members) consists of the enigmatic and unforgettable vocalist Fee Waybill, the elusive guitarist Roger Steen, the solid bass playing of Rick Anderson, the legendary Prairie Prince on drums, and keyboardist David Medd. The Tubes didn’t invent the idea of rock & roll as theater, but they have certainly thrived on the concept.
