The Tubes are a San Francisco-based rock band. Their eponymous 1975 debut album included the single “White Punks on Dope,” while their 1983 single “She’s a Beauty” was a top-10 U.S. hit and its music video was frequently played in the early days of MTV. The band also performed in the 1980 film Xanadu, singing the rock portion of the cross-genre song “Dancin'” opposite a big band.

The Tubes formed in 1972 in San Francisco from two Phoenix bands after both relocated to San Francisco in 1969. The Beans featured Bill Spooner, Rick Anderson, Vince Welnick, Frank Martinez, Scott Hornbeck and Bob Macintosh, while The Red White and Blues Band featured Prairie Prince, Roger Steen and David Killingsworth. After playing Expo ’70 in Japan, Killingsworth left the Red, White and Blues Band leaving Steen and Prince to audition bass players unsuccessfully. The Beans had been a local favorite in Phoenix selling out shows with a tongue in cheek concept rock show called “The Mother of Ascension” featuring costumes and props before moving to San Francisco. After moving, Bill Spooner worked at the Fillmore West sweeping floors in between Beans gigs at the Longshoremen’s Hall and other minor venues. The band’s loud, heavy jamming style didn’t attract attention and the band would go back to Phoenix and sell out shows to make rent. The Beans’ manager and former Alice Cooper Group drummer John Speer suggested they add Prince and Steen along with their roadie John Waybill for one of these shows. Waybill’s nickname among the band was “Fee,” short for “Fiji” thanks to his insane head of hippie hair.
