Master showmen, conceptualists, players, recording artists, and composers, The Tubes were undeniably among rock music’s supreme collectives. Waybill & Co.’s distinctive socio-political-absurdist canon traversed theater, hard rock, pop, glam, cabaret, techno, new wave, prog, porn, punk, funk, dance, rhythm and blues, jazz, experimental and whatever else they could throw against the wall, most of which stuck!
Bassist Rick Anderson was a study in versatility, seamlessly morphing multiple genres along with his resourceful bandmates.
