Biography from 1989 Excellent Adventure
Waybill is best known as the lead singer of the outrageous rock
group, The Tubes. Infamous for his wild stage antics, he initially made
his mark with the hit "White Punks on Dope" and then later with the
songs "She’s a Beauty" and "Don’t Touch Me There."
He made his film debut in "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains . . .
" and also appeared with The Tubes in "Xanadu."
The Tubes have etched a unique place in the history of rock
music . . . Fee Waybill was formerly the San Francisco group's roadie until 1972
when he was recruited to be the band's front man and singer. Garnering a
cult following, The Tubes became prominent in the 80's with their wildly
imaginative videos like She's a Beauty and their surreal live
shows. The group disbanded in the late 80's but regrouped in 1993 and are
still performing to this day.
