SAN FRANCISCO - Bill Spooner, founding father of San Francisco rockers, The Tubes, has mostly flown under the radar not only as a guitarist, but a musical visionary. The Tubes were truly a ground-breaking band, impeccable musicians disguised as rock & roll, multi-media performance artists. The Tubes created songs performed as vignettes, much in the same vein as a traditional German cabaret, which they turned into musical skits with a rock music score.
CAMARILLIO, CALIFORNIA - Marshall Blonstein's Audio Fidelity has released Grand Funk's widely popular classic rock album, Shinin' On, on limited-edition hybrid SACD. Riding high off the success of their 1973 We're An American Band hit album and tour, Grand Funk retained the extraordinary Todd Rundgren to produce Shinin' On, the band's eighth album.
