Today is Fee Waybill's birthday ... he was born in 1950 in Omaha with the name of John Waldo Waybill ...... really?   Who would name their kid that way?    To this day, The Tubes concert remains one of the most amazing and entertaining shows I ever saw.  I would describe Fee Waybill as an "athletic stud who could write, sing, and produce incredible shows".   Their live shows, however, were so costly to put on that the band basically went broke.    There is a collection of videos (mostly live performance clips) that's around somewhere that was released on Beta and Laserdisc.  One reason for sure to mourn the progression of technology because you may not be able to find a way to play them at high quality today.  It was done in 1982, and if you find it ... let me know!

There is also reportedly a whole warehouse full of material in California that's earmarked for a documentary, if an investor can be found.  Fingers are crossed!  So today Tubes fans, I salute you ...  and I'll talk to 'ya later .....
