My band 8 Minutes To Burn shared the stage with them at the Bisbee Royale and I remember being captivated by their soothing sounds and the laughter that filled the room when Amy made a funny comment. It was a great night to be introduced to them and when I think of them that is the night I will remember!
every body deserves to be happy,,,, let him be....... every one of us worth of love and to be love........ why cant you guys give him a little bit chances,,,, theres nothing wrong with it,,,, godbless and take care.....
This connection they had between them as well as with the audience is what drew me to them to play at my wedding in 2008. They played the day before, the wedding and the reception and infused the event with their particular joy. I saw them two years later at the Copper Queen where I bought their CD and they signed it for me. My marriage like the two of them is gone, but these two wonderful people will stay in the hearts of all who sat entranced by their music. Rest in peace dear Amy and Derrick, and my heart goes out to their families.
She declined to share her age? 40 must be about two years away. Embrace it.
I would like to know why John Aston isn't in the band.
Great preview, Casey!
Best of Tucson out there right now!
Always did like that band. Love the raw sound and the randomness some songs have.
Saw Richard and Tim in Charlotte at The Chop Shop on July 31st and was blown away by Richard's presence on stage and how tight the entire band sounds. I don't think many who have heard the Furs recently would dispute that they sound better today than ever before. And Richard's smile and pure joy is nothing short of infectious. One regret is that we didn't bring our 11 and 14-year-old children - this set would be a fantastic experience to share forward with the next generation. Hope they keep touring and that we'll have the chance to see them in North Carolina once again. Favorites from the 90+ minute set: Heaven; Love My Way; Heartbreak Beat; The Ghost In You.
Saw the Furs last year in Bristol UK. Simply stunning. Met Richard and his young lady in the city centre prior to the gig. Had a good chat with them. Can't wait for new material.

...I'm not sure why Tucson native and current Devo drummer Jeff Friedl rarely if ever gets mentioned in the local music media. He moved to California years ago and eventually worked/works with A Perfect Circle, Ashes Divide, The Beta Machine, Devo, Carina Round, Filter and Puscifer.
I like the "Wayback Machine" reference, but as a bit of an aficionado of Peabody's Improbable History from the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, I'd like to point out the correct spelling is "WABAC", though it was pronounced as spelled in the article. I believe it was a play on UNIVAC and other hi-tech names from back in the day.
Sherman, set the WABAC machine to Rio de Janeiro, 1968.
Can't wait for this show!
66 years old now..and Nam Vet moniker is just getting glue.....not sure you all get it yet... though.. Big war does not work. Big planes are for big planes. Big bombs are for Raytheon. We can only win with a moral force of honest and decent forms of governing. So far, we are not the best models of behavior. Patriot to the bone, but not a supporter of either dominant party.... We have to come clean about our motives....China does. Saudi Arabia does.. ergo the reason they loan us so much money...irony being....they believe more in the democratic process than we do....if not they would not loan so much money....get it yet?
Tegan and Sara have performed at least twice in Tucson before, in 2007 at the Rialto, and in 2004, when they opened for Melissa Ferrick at Club Congress.
