Interview with Fee Waybill (from The Tubes)

Celeb Savant, Barret Edelstein, sat down with the lead singer of the American rock band The Tubes, Fee Waybill. He tells us about his musical journey that started in the late ‘60s when he gave up being a cowboy on a ranch to join the band and be their roadie as they relocated to San Francisco, where he ultimately became the lead singer. We find out what gets him excited to perform live after many decades in the industry, and delve into the band's collaboration with choreographer Kenny Ortega - which created theatrical live shows, and their cameo in the cultural iconic film, Xanadu. Grab your gear as we dive into 50 years of American rock!
