Fee Waybill
-name
Lead singer of the Tubes.

I saw the Tubes in about 1982 or so with a few of my fraternity brothers at the Orpheum Theater in Boston. We sat in the last row of the second balcony, as far from the stage as it was possible to be without actually leaving the building. Extremely drunk, had an absolutely hilarious time.
