Thoughts about Lutz from Jon Hammond LINK: https://www.facebook.com/notes/jon-hammond/mourning-lutz-b%C3%BCchner/10156648708165287

Saturday, March 12, 2016: Folks, I am really in shock from hearing news of the unexpected and very sad death of my good friend Lutz Büchner! I really didn’t want to say it on the internet after receiving the horrible news in communications with our mutual good friend and fellow musician / bandmate Heinz Lichius. This is so hard to get my head around and accept it but I know it’s true that Lutz suffered a fatal heart attack while on tour in Tokyo Japan with his beloved NDR-bigband with Peter Erskine on the band – I can see Lutz’ smile and hear his voice and music in my mind like it was yesterday – and we spoke and played together so many times. So now I see the news releases are already out on the news FEEDS from the NDR, Hamburger Abendblatt etc. and a few too-early mentions on the Facebook, so I know it’s time to write a few words for those of you who might not know of Lutz Büchner, as follows: As Joe Gallardo the great trombonist and long-time colleague of Lutz’ said in email to me last night: “As you well know, Lutz was first of all a great human being and secondly, he was a masterful player. Lutz was my brother. We will all miss him.” – The very first time I met Lutz was in 1995 on a rainy night in Hamburg Eimsbüttel at the Thursday night weekly jazz session in Jazzclub Birdland – I had heard him the week before and pushed my Hammond organ on the wheels through the rain to the club and got there real early, Hr. Reichert the owner opened up the club and I was telling Mr. Reichert I came the week before but didn’t get to play so “early bird gets the worm…and maybe I’ll get to play with Lutz Büchner!” – well we did it and by good luck my friend Joris Dudli the great drummer was there – it was magic from the first hit. That’s where it started, I was living in Hamburg to play music and write tunes – like so many musicians following in the footsteps of The Beatles, by invitation of my sponsor Knut Benzner journalist moderator on the NDR. From then on together with main man Heinz Lichius drums who I had met just before when Heinz came over to meet me one afternoon – Heinz had recommended to check out Lutz, one of the finest rising musicians on the Hamburg scene. We had a lot of great times together on the bandstand and off from that time on – we played in Hamburg and his hometown of Bremen – turned out to be that Lutz was a real life jazz angel who saved my life at least twice, one time involving bringing me to the hospital / krankenhaus and translating to me what they were about to do to me – we escaped out the side door and the doctor came to our gig that night! I met Lutz’ Mom and Dad beautiful people when they came to hear us play in Bremen at Studio club April 7, 1998 – and most recently our last gigs together with my favorite musicians Michael Leuschner, (Heinz Lichius of course) “Fiete” Ernst-Friedrich Fiete Felsch NDR horn section brothers along with Joe Berger guitar, probably best gig of my life – Lutz was so happy to have found his love with his wife Bettina and he was always crazy about his son Asmus and his step daughters by Bettina, the happiest I have ever seen him, he glowed in the dark he had that much joy! — Back in 2005 I had an idea, I said to my long-time girlfriend Jennifer: Lutz is one of the greatest saxophonists I ever heard, I want to feature him on a CD release, he could be making a great record every day! I couldn’t believe that he didn’t have any feature albums out at that point – so I discussed it with Knut Benzner and we all co-produced a recording session for this purpose in the famous Studio 1 at NDR, the NDR SESSIONS Projekt was born, with the addition of “Joe G” / Joe Gallardo on trombone and Heinz Lichius and myself, Rudolf Grosser at the controls big SSL console, we started playing in the morning and I played through the magic bass amp belonging to Lucas Lindholm – the boys took one long coffee break and other than that we recorded tunes all day long – I am so grateful that I’ll always have this recording date together with Lutz, of course later on Lutz came out with more records – but this one for me is my special keepsake that went down with the blessings of NDR with the help of Knut Benzner and Axel Dürr. So many stories I can tell you, but most importantly everybody loved Lutz, I know there are a lot of tears flowing now around Hamburg and Bremen, my heart goes out to Lutz’ Family, Friends and Musicians music brothers and sisters! The 2nd to the last time we played together, I hadn’t seen Lutz for a while and he told me about a real miracle of survival when he was driving on the autobahn with Bettina and the kinder all his happy Family in the car, I think there was ice on the road – a car slammed in to the back of his car demolishing the car, but Lutz’ horns were in the trunk – they all got crushed but it saved his Family! They were all shaken up but OK – the lucky star was shining over them, and even though Lutz is not with us physically anymore, his lucky star will always be shining – he was competely dedicated to the NDR-bigband family of musicians and his own Family – always a huge inspiration to me as a person and master musician, rest in peace my very special good friend Lutz Büchner – my deepest and most sincere condolences go out to Lutz’ Mom and Dad and Bettina and his son Asmus and step children by Bettina – all the folks who know and love Lutz, sincerely, Jon Hammond

Lutz Büchner wurde 47 Jahre alt. © NDR / Steven Haberland Fotograf: Steven Haberland

Report / Obituary from Stefan Gerdes NDR: https://www.ndr.de/orchester_chor/b… – Stand: 12.03.2016 15:00 Uhr – Lesezeit: ca.4 Min. Trauer um Lutz Büchner “Der Saxofonist Lutz Büchner ist am 11. März während einer Japan-Tour der NDR Bigband im Alter von 47 Jahren an den Folgen eines Herzinfarkts verstorben. Es war ein großes Glück für die NDR Bigband, den Menschen und Musiker Lutz Büchner seit 22 Jahren in ihren Reihen zu haben. Er war ein grandioser, ein wahrhaft bedeutender Saxofonist mit einer unverkennbaren, einzigartigen Spielweise, die selbst dem ältesten und schon oft gehörten Jazzstandard immer wieder neue Seiten abgewinnen konnte. Vor allem aber brachte er auch seine Persönlichkeit in die Band ein: seinen Humor, sein ausgeglichenes Temperament und sein großes Interesse an allen Dingen des Lebens, das weit über die Musik hinaus reichte. Lutz Büchner war ein echter Teamplayer, vor und hinter den Kulissen.
Knuth: “Er lebte leidenschaftlich für und mit Musik”
Joachim Knuth, NDR Programmdirektor Hörfunk: “Die Nachricht vom Tod Lutz Büchners macht mich sehr betroffen. Ich habe ihn als einen liebenswürdigen Menschen erlebt, der leidenschaftlich mit und für Musik lebte. Lutz Büchner hatte den Jazz im Blut. Er liebte den spielerischen Umgang mit der Musik, die Improvisation. Der Tod dieses beeindruckenden Saxofonisten ist für die NDR Bigband, für den NDR, ein großer Verlust. Meine Gedanken sind in diesen Stunden bei der Familie und den Freunden Lutz Büchners.” Programmhinweis
In Erinnerung an Lutz Büchner stellen wir in der Sendung am 20. März ab 22.05 Uhr einige seiner schönesten Aufnahmen mit der NDR Bigband vor. — Fasziniert von Miles Davis
Lutz Büchner wurde am 5. August 1968 in Bremen geboren. Er interessierte sich schon früh für Musik, bekam klassischen Klarinettenunterricht und entdeckte als Teenager nach einem Konzertbesuch den Jazz. Als er den Trompeter Miles Davis hörte, faszinierte ihn die Möglichkeit, sich auch jenseits der geschrieben Noten auf eine ganz persönliche Weise ausdrücken zu können. Dieser improvisierten, sich immer neu erfindenden Musik wollte er sich widmen.
Lutz Büchner kam nach Hamburg und studierte Saxofon bei Herb Geller, dem damals bekanntesten Solisten der NDR Bigband. Schon bald spielte er dort im Saxofonsatz – zunächst als Gast, seit 1994 als festes Mitglied. In den Mittelpunkt zog es ihn, den eher besonnen Menschen, dabei nicht so sehr. Aber wenn das Scheinwerferlicht auf ihn zeigte und er zum Solo ansetzte, dann entwickelte sein Spiel eine ganz besondere Wirkung: Mit geschlossenen Augen stand er da, die Töne flossen ebenso überraschend wie logisch aus seinem Instrument, sein ganzer Körper schien sich dabei in Musik zu verwandeln.
In seinem Spiel steckte besondere Tiefe
Viele Gäste der NDR Bigband haben ihn und sein Spiel so erlebt und geschätzt: Jazzgrößen wie Al Jarreau, Bobby McFerrin, João Bosco, Omar Sosa oder Abdullah Ibrahim genossen es, wenn Lutz Büchner neben ihnen spielte. Der Amerikaner Dale Wilson widmete ihm und seinem Saxofon-Kollegen Fiete Felsch eine ganze Big-Band-Suite, und die Komponistin Maria Schneider wollte ihn nach einem Besuch bei der NDR Bigband am liebsten gleich nach New York mitnehmen. Es waren nicht nur seine technischen Fertigkeiten und seine nahezu grenzenlosen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten, mit denen Lutz Büchner so begeisterte. In seinem Spiel steckte eine besondere Tiefe. “Es ist sein Sound”, sagte Maria Schneider einmal, “Lutz berührt mich.”
Solistische Höhenflüge und zarte Lyrik
In der Improvisation spiegelt sich ja immer der ganze Mensch. So konnte Lutz Büchner auf dem Tenorsaxofon unendlich packend, mitreißend und kraftvoll spielen. Unvergessen ist sein solistischer Höhenflug in der Duke-Ellington-Hommage “Diminuendo, crescendo and crescendissimo in blue”, in der er minutenlang ein loderndes Feuer immer neu entfachte, bis die Zuschauer bei einem Auftritt der NDR Bigband in New York am Schluss buchstäblich aus den Sitzen gerissen wurden. Seine andere, lyrische Seite war besonders stark auf der Klarinette zu hören, auf der er zu den außergewöhnlichsten Stimmen des modernen Jazz zählte, vielleicht sogar weltweit. Intim und zart, wie gehaucht schwebten die Töne in die Luft, jeder von ihnen hatte Bedeutung.
Nicht nur in der NDR Bigband, auch in eigenen Formationen waren sein ausgeprägtes Spiel und seine ausgefeilten Kompositionen zu hören. Mit seinem Quartett (mit Sandra Hempel, Heinz Lichius und Pepe Berns) trat Lutz Büchner 2005 bei den 2. Hamburger Jazztagen in der Kampnagel-Fabrik auf. Im selben Jahr entstand mit dem Trio Connex (mit Björn Lücker und Philipp Steen) ein gleichnamiges Album, und 2006 erschien seine vielbeachtete, von der Kritik hochgelobte CD “Ring”.
“Mein Ziel ist es”, hat Lutz Büchner einmal gesagt, “ganz im Moment zu spielen.” Wir verdanken ihm viele unvergessliche Momente. Mit ihm verlieren wir einen lieben Menschen, einen großen Künstler und einen wunderbaren Kollegen.

Google Translation of Stefan Gerdes’ obituary of Lutz Büchner: Trauer um Lutz Büchner — The saxophonist Lutz Büchner died on March 11 during a Japan tour the NDR Bigband at the age of 47 years to a heart attack. It was a great happiness for the NDR Bigband, to have the man and musician Lutz Büchner for 22 years in its ranks. He was a magnificent, truly significant saxophonist with an unmistakable, unique play that even the oldest and often included jazz standard could abgewinnen new pages repeatedly. Above all, he also expressed his personality in the band a: his humor, his even temperament and his great interest in all things in life, which extended far beyond the music. Lutz Büchner was a real team player, before and behind the scenes.
Knuth: “He lived passionately and with music”
Joachim Knuth, NDR program director Radio: “The news of the death Lutz Büchner makes me very concerned I have experienced him as an amiable man who lived passionately and music Lutz Büchner had the Jazz in the blood He loved the playful use of… the music, the improvisation. the death of this impressive saxophonist for the NDR Bigband, for NDR, a great loss. My thoughts are at this time with the family and friends Lutz Büchner. “
program Note
Daughter Lutz Büchner we in the mission on March 20, from 22:05 some of his most beautiful recordings with the NDR Bigband ago.
Fascinated by Miles Davis
Lutz Büchner was born on August 5, 1968 in Bremen. He took an early interest in music, got classical clarinet lessons and discovered as a teenager after a concert jazz. When he heard the trumpeter Miles Davis, he was fascinated by the opportunity to express themselves beyond the written notes on a very personal way. he wanted to devote himself to this improvised, always reinventing music.
Lutz Büchner came to Hamburg and studied saxophone with Herb Geller, the then famous soloists the NDR Bigband. Soon he was playing in saxophone sentence – initially as a guest, since 1994 as a permanent member. In the center, he moved, the more prudent people, not so much. But when the spotlight was on him and he started to Solo, then developed his game a very special effect: With eyes closed, he stood there, the sounds flowed as surprising as logically from his instrument, his whole body seemed to be doing in music to transform , — In his game put special depth
Many guests of the NDR Bigband have him and his game so experienced and appreciated: jazz greats such as Al Jarreau, Bobby McFerrin, João Bosco, or Omar Sosa Abdullah Ibrahim enjoyed it when Lutz Büchner played next to them. The Americans Dale Wilson dedicated to him and his saxophone colleagues Fiete Felsch a whole big band suite, and the composer Maria Schneider wanted to take him for a visit to the NDR Bigband prefer equal to New York. It was not just his technique and its almost limitless expressive possibilities with which Lutz Büchner enthusiastic way. In his play put a special depth. “It is his sound,” Maria Schneider once said, “Lutz touched me.”
Soloistic booms and delicate poetry
In the improvisation so the whole man always reflects. So Lutz Büchner could play endlessly enthralling, exciting and powerful on the tenor saxophone. Unforgotten is his solo flight of the Duke Ellington Tribute “diminuendo, crescendo and crescendissimo in blue”, in which he several minutes a blazing fire always rekindled until the audience literally at a performance of the NDR Bigband in New York at the end of the Sitting were torn. His other, lyrical side was particularly strong to listen to the clarinet, on which he was one of the most extraordinary voices of modern jazz, perhaps the world. Intimate and delicate, like breathy floated the sounds in the air, each of them had meaning.
Not only in the NDR Bigband, even in his own formations were heard his strong play and his polished compositions. With his quartet (Sandra Hempel, Heinz Lichius and Pepe Berns) joined Lutz Büchner 2005 at the 2nd Hamburg jazz days in the Kampnagel factory. In the same year (with Björn Lücker and Philipp Steen) was created with the trio Connex a self-titled album, and in 2006 he released his highly acclaimed, highly acclaimed by critics CD “Ring”.
“My goal is,” Lutz Büchner once said, “to play the very moment.” We owe him many unforgettable moments. With him we lose a loved one, a great artist and a wonderful colleague.

This is my Lucky Day folks…I just had breakfast in Manhattan with Lee Houskeeper, friends from ‘real San Francisco CA’! Lee knows everybody worth knowing and is Chief Editor San Francisco Stories – Press Agent extraordinaire! Great to see you on this side of the good ol’ US of A Lee!

Jon Hammond *Note: Folks, Lee worked with some of my all-time favorite musical and political activist heroes including the late great Phil Ochs who was a huge inspiration to me, greatly missed! *Wiki:”Kansas City Bomber” is a song by Phil Ochs, a U.S. singer-songwriter best known for the protest songs he wrote in the 1960s.
In 1972, record producer Lee Housekeeper asked Ochs to write the theme song for the film Kansas City Bomber, a film about roller derby starring Raquel Welch.[1][2] Although Ochs enjoyed watching the sport on television, composing the song proved difficult, as Ochs was suffering from writer’s block.[1][2] At last, he made a demo, on which Micky Dolenz of The Monkees sang back-up vocals.[3]
Months later, Ochs was traveling in Australia. Housekeeper told him the film’s producers liked his demo, but it was not exactly what they were looking for. Ochs decided to make a new recording of the song, backed by the Australian rock band Daddy Cool.[4][5]
Ultimately, the film’s producers chose not to use the Ochs song in the soundtrack.[6] Nevertheless, he convinced his record company, A&M Records, to release it as a single. The record sold poorly.[6]
In the only known review of “Kansas City Bomber (song)”, Record World wrote that “progressives will find this a moody change of pace.”[7] Billboard included the single in its “Also Recommended” column.[8]
In 2001, writer Mark Brend described “Kansas City Bomber” as “unremarkable”.[9] Biographer Michael Schumacher wrote in 1996 that the song “was neither an admirable work nor an embarrassment”.[10]
Many Ochs fans never heard “Kansas City Bomber” before it was included in 1988’s The War Is Over: The Best of Phil Ochs. The song was also included in the 1997 collection American Troubadour.”

This radio has kept me company on many a lonely night – the last Zenith Trans-Oceanic made in year 1981, 12 Band – Jon Hammond

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Oceanic
The Trans-Oceanic (abbreviated T/O) was the name given to a series of portable radios produced from 1942 to 1981 by Zenith Radio. They were characterised by their heavy-duty, high-quality construction and their performance as shortwave receivers
Zenith’s founder, Commander Eugene F. McDonald, was a great admirer of advanced technological development and believed that his company’s products should include the latest, most practical advances in a well-built product that continued to enhance the company’s reputation. Of the many products of Zenith Radio, the ‘Trans-Oceanic’ series of portable radios were amongst the most famous.
McDonald was a keen yachtsman and outdoorsman and wished for a portable radio that would provide entertainment broadcasts as well as being able to tune into weather, marine and international shortwave stations too. He asked his company’s engineers to develop prototypes to meet his criteria and by 1940 they had concept sets that were ready for production.
The Zenith ‘T/O’ began life in 1942 as the Model 7G605 ‘Trans-ocean Clipper’. Priced at $75, it was released in January but ceased production in April as Zenith shifted their production to war-related equipment. During this short production run, some 35,000 units were produced and sales data showed that many were sold to customers in the ‘above average’ income group. However, many also found their way into various theatres of war and in to the hands of appreciative servicemen—demand for a resumption of production at war’s end was kept high.
The T/O was a dual-powered radio receiver; it could operate from electrical service AC or DC and via a pair of “A” and “B” dry cell batteries for portability. The batteries are obsolete but the early T/O models live on either due to the ability to use mains line power to operate or by enthusiasts who fabricate a battery supply from modern cells (six “D” cells for the filaments and either ten 9-volt or sixty “AA” cells for the plates). Also notable was the lack of a vacuum tube or valve as a rectifier. Zenith used a selenium rectifier in the T/O. Inserting the power plug into a socket on the chassis or the side of the radio (depending on model) switched the T/O to battery operation.
The first post-war T/O was the 8G005Y, designed by Robert Davol Budlong, an industrial design consultant responsible for many of the Zenith radio products. Priced at $125, it was in production from 1946 to 1949. This was replaced in December 1949 by the G500—a ‘changeover’ model that had updated electronics but the same appearance. The G500 held its price at less than $100 until it was withdrawn in mid-1951.
The H500 ‘Super Trans-Oceanic’ was introduced in May 1951 at an initial price of $99.95. It had a redesigned front face and incorporated many frequency coverage and electronic changes ordered by McDonald. There also was a small production run of “militarized” Trans-Oceanic’s, ordered by the U.S. government.
After 1953, there was competition to the Trans-Oceanic from both Hallicrafters, with their ‘Trans-World’ series sets, and RCA, with their ‘Strato-World’ models.
In the spring of 1954, the 600 series was introduced with its ‘slide-rule’ type dial and a mains supply cord which coils inside the set on a spring-loaded reel. This model stayed in production, with minor changes, until the end of the T/O tube era in 1962.
During the tube or valve T/O model run, this receiver did not include an 88-108 MHz FM radio band.
Eugene McDonald died in 1958, but he was personally involved in the design changes to ‘his’ radio to the very end. In November 1957, Zenith introduced the all-new, nine transistor solid state Trans-Oceanic. The older tube-based Trans-Oceanic was continued in production until 1962…

Organ Meets Bigband in The Zeughaus Wismar – Camera: Heinz Lichius Am 30.07.2015 ist das Landesjugendjazzorchester Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (LaJazzO MV) mit seinem diesjährigen Solisten Jon Hammond in der Hansestadt Wismar zu Gast.
https://www.facebook.com/events/1625578051045838/
Nachdem sich in den vergangenen Jahren das LaJazzO MV mit den in der Big Band vorkommenden Instrumenten musikalisch auseinandersetzte, wird in 2015 die Jazzorgel musikalisch thematisiert werden. Unter dem Titel “Organ meets Big Band” wird dieses sehr traditionsreiche Instrument der Jazzgeschichte in den Mittelpunkt der Konzertreihe im folgenden Jahr gestellt. Als Jazzinstrument wurde es von Fats Waller in den 30er Jahren eingeführt und hatte seine Hochzeit in den 50er Jahren durch seine Vertreter wie Jimmy Smith. Der international renommierte New Yorker Jazzorganist Jon Hammond wird zusammen mit dem LaJazzO MV unter der Leitung von Michael Leuschner den besonderen Charme dieses Instrumentes wieder zum Leben erwecken. Im Programm sind unter anderem Titel von Jimmy Smith, arrangiert von Steve Grey – eine Leihgabe aus dem Archiv der NDR-Bigband.

Jon Hammond studierte in den siebziger Jahren am Berklee College of Music und am City College San Francisco. Konzertreisen führten ihn quer durch die Vereinigten Staaten und Kanada. In seiner eigenen ‘Jon Hammond Show’ spielte er mit Musikern wie Dizzy Gillespie, Paul Butterfield, Jaco Pastorius, John Entwistle, Sammy Davis Jr., Percy Sledge und vielen anderen. Auch in Europa fand und findet seine Musik unverändert viele Anhänger. Die Medien berichten wiederholt von einem unverwechselbaren und prägenden Sound. Jon Hammond hat u.a. auf der 20. Frankfurter Musikmesse mitgewirkt und tritt vornehmlich in Hamburg auf. “The Jon Hammond Show” is a funky, swinging Jazz instrumental revue, featuring notable international soloists and reflecting the influences of Miles Davis, The Crusaders and Jimmy Smith.

The Tubes – Band Tonight in Bremen Germany ladies and gentlemen! – Coffee Time with The Tubes’ Rick Anderson and Prairie Prince – Jon Hammond
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tubes
L to R Rick Andrson, Jon Hammond, Prairie Prince
Wiki:
The Tubes is a San Francisco-based rock band whose 1975 debut album included the hit single “White Punks on Dope”. During its first fifteen years or so, the band’s live performances combined quasi-pornography with wild satires of media, consumerism, and politics.[citation needed] They are perhaps best remembered for their 1983 single “She’s a Beauty”, a top 10 U.S. hit with a frequently-played music video in the early days of MTV; and in the 1980 film Xanadu singing the rock portion of the cross-genre song “Dancin'” opposite a big band.

The Tubes started as a group of high school friends from Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona. Two Phoenix bands, the Beans and The Red, White and Blues Band, both relocated to San Francisco in 1969 and eventually merged. The new band’s core membership remained largely intact for more than a decade: Fee Waybill (real name John Waldo Waybill) (vocals), Bill “Sputnik” Spooner (guitar, vocals), Roger Steen (guitar), Prairie Prince (real name Charles L. Prince) (drums), Michael Cotten (synthesizer), Vince Welnick (piano), and Rick Anderson (bass). Singer Re Styles (born Shirley Marie MacLeod) (vocals) and ex-Santana percussionist Mingo Lewis were also fixtures for much of the band’s early history.[1]

Show business excess was a common theme of the band’s early work, with Waybill sometimes assuming the onstage persona of “Quay Lewd” (a pun on Quaalude), a drunk, drugged out, barely coherent lead singer, wearing flashing glasses and stilt-like tall platform shoes.

Debut album[edit]
The Tubes’ first self-titled album, The Tubes (1975), was produced by Al Kooper. The track “White Punks on Dope” was an “absurd anthem of wretched excess” and a tribute to their rich, white teenage fan base in San Francisco.[citation needed] Since then the song has been covered by Mötley Crüe, and the German rock musician Nina Hagen took the tune and set new lyrics to it (not a translation of the original lyrics), titled her work TV-Glotzer (“Couch Potato”), and used this song as the opening track of her own debut album Nina Hagen Band, released 1978 on CBS/Germany Records. The album track “What Do You Want from Life?”, which became another of the Tubes’ signature songs, satirizes consumerism and celebrity culture and climaxes in a “hard-sell” monologue by Waybill, which name-checks celebrities such as Bob Dylan, Paul Williams and Randolph Mantooth, as well as well-known products of the period, including the Dynagym exercise machine and a host of American vehicles such as the Winnebago and the Mercury Montclair.

Second album[edit]
The Tubes’ second album, Young and Rich (1976) on A&M Records, was produced by Ken Scott. It featured “Don’t Touch Me There”, a suggestive duet between Waybill and Re Styles, which was arranged in classic “Wall of Sound” style by Jack Nitzsche. The song was co-written by Ron Nagle and Tubes dancer/vocalist Jane Dornacker, who died in a helicopter crash in 1986.

Third album, a live album, fourth album[edit]
The Tubes’ third album gave way to thematic experimentation with Now (1977) and after their live record What Do You Want from Live (1978), recorded during their record breaking run at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, England, the fourth album for A&M, Remote Control (1979) was a concept album produced by Todd Rundgren about a television-addicted idiot-savant. The cover of Remote Control (1979) shows a baby watching American panel game show Hollywood Squares in a specially made “Vidi-Trainer”.

Music videos[edit]
John Tobler opined that with their media savvy and theatrical skills, The Tubes were born to create rock video, but arrived several years too early.[2] However, the band did produce at least one collection of music videos, which were issued on the 1982 Pioneer Artists laserdisc “The Tubes Video” (this videodisc contained versions of twelve of the band’s hits, including “White Punks on Dope”, “Mondo Bondage”, “Talk to Ya Later”, and several others from yet-to-be-completed “The Completion Backwards Principle” album, in slickly produced music videos based on the group’s stage shows).

Live shows[edit]
The Tubes put their creativity and art skills mainly into their live performances, in which songs could be full-fledged production numbers, from a beach movie parody for “Sushi Girl”, to leather clad S&M hijinks in “Mondo Bondage”, to the game show antics of “What Do You Want from Life?” At their peak, their live act featured dozens of other performers, including tap dancers and acrobats. The Tubes’ stage productions were choreographed by Kenny Ortega and featured cast members Jane Dornacker, LeRoy Jones, Michael Holman, Michael Springer, Cindi Osborn, Heline Gouax, and Mary Niland from 1975-1977. From 1978-1979, the cast included Sharon Collins, Caty Bevan, and Loryanna Catalano. The Completion Backward tour featured Shelly Pang, Cheryl Hangland, Joey Richards, and Cynthia Rhodes. From 1983-1985, Michelle Gray (who later married Todd Rundgren) and Cheryl Hangland were principal dancers. Several crew members — including Tour Manager Steve “Chopper” Borges, Lee Collins, and Gail Lowe — made frequent appearances on stage in various roles as well.[citation needed]

The Tubes’ live shows in the late 1970s and early 1980s were rife with allusions to mainstream film [Dr. Strangelove (1964), Rollerball (1975), Saturday Night Fever (1977), Grease (1978)] then-forgotten B-movies [Wild Women of Wongo (1958), Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958)], music (Tom Jones, punk rock, a medley of Nelson Riddle television themes), contemporary pop culture (Patty Hearst, the Viking program), television (Let’s Make a Deal, Fernwood 2Nite, the anime Raideen), and literature (Nelson Algren’s A Walk on the Wild Side), presaging the subcultural reverence and over-the-top theatricality of later groups like The World/Inferno Friendship Society.[citation needed]

These shows were expensive to produce, however, and while they earned the band a reputation for being one of the most entertaining live acts of the time, by the early 1980s, they found themselves short of money.

Departure from A&M Records and tenure with Capitol Records[edit]
Their fifth studio album, the self-produced Suffer for Sound, was meant to complete the group’s contract with A&M. As its style marked a radical new direction for the band, A&M opted for a more conservative outtakes / B-sides / oddities selection titled T.R.A.S.H. (Tubes Rarities and Smash Hits) (1981).[3] The band was signed to Capitol Records by Bruce Garfield and Bobby Colomby, scaling back the live shows to cut costs and redesigning itself as a leaner ensemble with a view to release more accessible hits.

Fifth and sixth albums[edit]
Suffer For Sound was not released, so their fifth album release was The Completion Backward Principle (1981), another concept album, featuring the classic rock staple “Talk to Ya Later”. The album presented itself as a motivational business document, complete with shocking pictures of the band members cleaned up and wearing suits.[citation needed] The band also had their first Top 40 hit in the United States in 1981, “Don’t Want to Wait Anymore” (recorded almost entirely by Spooner, without Waybill’s participation). The sixth studio album, Outside Inside (1983), followed a few years later and yielded a few hits, including the number 10 (USA) hit “She’s a Beauty”.

Seventh album and departure from Capitol Records[edit]
In 1985, the band teamed up with Todd Rundgren again for their seventh album, Love Bomb. With Bruce Garfield and Bobby Colomby dropped by Capitol in the company-wide layoffs that took place pre-reorganization, like many of their label mates The Tubes also were released, however, this occurred just as they were going on tour in support of the album. The band found it necessary to self-finance the tour as a matter of respect to honor their commitment to their fans. Between this tour’s self-financing and the band’s continued self-financing of their San Francisco recording studio built in 1980, the tour left the band in a half million dollars in debt, obliging them to play lesser expensive and smaller venues for a year to pay off their financial commitments.[3]

Waybill departs[edit]
Fee Waybill had already released an unsuccessful solo album (Read My Lips, Capitol Records) in 1984, but during this time, he had also happily enjoyed a fruitful writing partnership with fellow Capitol Records label mate Richard Marx, their most popular and well known collaboration being “Edge of a Broken Heart”, recorded by the female band Vixen. Waybill left the band in 1986 [“Fee broke up”, one band member said],[citation needed] leaving the band without a lead singer.

Personnel changes[edit]
Later in the year the remaining members of the band took on a longtime friend from Phoenix, Arizona, David Killingsworth, as lead vocalist. Killingsworth was the singer in the Red and White Blues Band with Prairie and Roger. Michael Cotten relocated to New York to pursue a career based on his artwork, stage design and production, and is considered one of the country’s top production designers. In the fall of 1988, Bill Spooner traveled his final tour with the band and left in early 1989. Vince Welnick departed as well to take to the road with Todd Rundgren in 1989 and then joined the Grateful Dead in 1990. Gary Cambra joined on keyboards and guitar in 1989. He and Roger Steen took over most the lead vocal duties after Killingsworth left in early 1990.

Waybill returns[edit]
In 1993, Fee Waybill rejoined the band. This lineup toured Europe and released two albums, a compilation and the 1996 album Genius of America. David Medd joined in 1996 to play keyboards alongside Cambra. In 2001, the band released a live CD, The Tubes World Tour 2001, and continued to tour.

Reunions[edit]
On April 22, 2005, a reunion show took place at the Rio Theater in Santa Cruz, CA, with Waybill, Steen, Anderson, Spooner, Welnick and Cotten. 2005 also saw the release of their live album Wild in London.

In July 2015, the Tubes started a European and U.S. tour, including dates in Germany, Sweden, the UK and the United States and featured 5 band members (Fee Waybill, Roger Steen, Prairie Prince, Rick Anderson & David Medd).

The Tubes Project and other milestones[edit]
Michael Cotten started “The Tubes Project” in 2005, to save and digitize the band’s reel to reel and video tape archive. The collection had been kept in the closet of Tubes fan club president Marylin Wood’s son after being discarded in the late 1980s. Included in the vault are full color shows taped for TV at Bimbos in San Francisco, 1975 and VARA TV from the 1977 European tour. Over 70 interviews were conducted with band members, crew, managers, cast and colleagues such as Re Styles, Todd Rundgren, Al Kooper, Devo and David Foster. Hundreds of photos were scanned and compiled from band members and fan collections for use in the hour and half documentary.

After leaving the band, Jane Dornacker formed the band Leila and the Snakes and later worked as a traffic reporter. She was killed in a helicopter crash in 1986, whilst giving a live report.

In April 2005, the band reunited for a concert at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz, California. It would be the last performance of The Tubes to include Vince Welnick, and the last time the full line up appeared in public.

Pianist Vince Welnick, who suffered from depression, committed suicide on June 2, 2006.

Gary Cambra left the band in 2006 leaving David Medd as their sole keyboardist.

On September 23, 2007, the remaining members of the Tubes reunited in Phoenix for their induction into the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame.

On November 10, 2009, “Mondo Birthmark” a CD of previously unreleased rarities was released through the label Fuel 2000. The package was designed by Michael Cotten and Prairie Prince with rare photos and interviews of the group. The demos also feature former member Bob Macintosh on drums.

1978: Headlined the Knebworth Festival with Frank Zappa and Peter Gabriel. On April 3, The Tubes performed live with Dolly Parton on Cher… Special, in the “Musical Battle to Save Cher’s Soul Medley”. As the title would imply, the performance was a duel between the forces of good and evil to determine where Cher would spend her eternal destiny. Dolly Parton was dressed in white and, with a team of brightly clad singers, portrayed an angelic host while The Tubes, dressed in black leather and performing “Mondo Bondage”, battled to send Cher’s soul into eternal damnation. The band also performed the song “Smoke (La Vie en Fumér)”, about a guy in a trenchcoat winning over a girl at a bar with his cigarette smoking technique, which employed giant, twelve-foot inflatable cigarettes. At the end of the number the dancers would bash singer Waybill with the giant cigarettes until he was crushed into the ground.[5]

Paul Kantner – time for some morning coffee, SF Chronicle and smoke some cigs in North Beach San Francisco – Jon Hammond
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Kantner
Paul Lorin Kantner (born March 17, 1941) is an American rock musician, known for co-founding the psychedelic rock band Jefferson Airplane and its spin-off band Jefferson Starship. He was born in San Francisco, California.

*Coffee Time at Caffé Trieste:

Although the band was originally formed by Marty Balin, Kantner eventually became the main man of Jefferson Airplane and captained the group through various successor incarnations of Jefferson Starship. Kantner has the longest continuous membership with the band; at times he was the only founding member still in the band from the original Jefferson Airplane line up.[1] A political anarchist, Kantner once advocated the use of psychedelic drugs such as LSD for mind expansion and spiritual growth, and is a prominent advocate of the legalization of marijuana.[2][3] In a 1986 interview, Kantner shared his thoughts about cocaine and alcohol, saying, “Cocaine, particularly, is a bummer. It’s a noxious drug that turns people into jerks. And alcohol is probably the worst drug of all. As you get older and accomplish more things in life in general, you realize that drugs don’t help, particularly if you abuse them.”[4] When Kantner suffered a cerebral hemorrhage in 1980, his attending physician at Cedars-Sinai, Stephen Levy, was quick to point out it was not a drug-related issue, saying: “There is zero relationship between Paul’s illness and drugs. He doesn’t use drugs.”[5] Kantner’s primary instrument is the rhythm guitar, and he also sings lead or backup vocals. Kantner has three children, sons Gareth and Alexander, and daughter China.[6]

Early years[edit]
The son of Paul and Cora Lee (Fortier) Kantner, Paul had two much older half-siblings: a half-brother and a half-sister. His mother died when he was eight years old, and Kantner remembers not being able to attend her funeral, having been sent to the circus instead.[1] His father, a traveling salesman, sent young Kantner off to Jesuit military school after his mother’s death. It was in the school’s library at age eight or nine where he read his first science fiction book, finding an escape by immersing himself in science fiction novels and music at an early age.[1][2][7] When he became a teenager he went into total revolt against all forms of authority, and became determined to become a protest folk singer in the manner of his musical hero, Pete Seeger.[7] He entered University of Santa Clara and San Jose State College, completing a total of three years before he dropped out to enter the music scene.[1]

During the summer of 1965 singer Marty Balin saw Kantner perform at the Drinking Gourd, a San Francisco folk club, and recruited him as part of the original Jefferson Airplane.[1][2][8] When the group needed a guitarist, Kantner recommended Jorma Kaukonen, whom he knew from his San Jose days.[1] Kantner would be the only member to appear on all Jefferson Airplane/Starship albums bearing the Jefferson prefix. Kantner’s songwriting often featured whimsical or political lyrics with a science-fiction or fantasy theme, usually set to music that had a hard rock, almost martial sound. Kantner and Jefferson Airplane were among those who played at Woodstock. Forty years later, Kantner recalled: “We were due to be on stage at 10pm on the Saturday night but we didn’t actually get on until 7.30am the following day.”[9] Later in the year, the group also played at Altamont, where Marty Balin was knocked unconscious by a Hell’s Angel member originally hired as security for the concert.[10]

Despite its commercial success, the Airplane was plagued by intra-group fighting, causing the band to begin splintering at the height of its success.[11] Part of the problem was manager Bill Graham, who wanted the group to do more touring and more recording.[12][13] During the transitional period of the early 1970s, as the Airplane started to disintegrate, Kantner recorded Blows Against The Empire, a concept album featuring an ad-hoc group of musicians whom he dubbed Jefferson Starship.[7][11][14][15] This earliest edition of Jefferson Starship included members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (David Crosby and Graham Nash) and members of the Grateful Dead (Jerry Garcia, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart), as well as some of the other members of Jefferson Airplane (Grace Slick, Joey Covington, and Jack Casady).

In Blows Against the Empire, Kantner (and Slick) sang about a group of people escaping earth in a hijacked starship. The album was nominated in 1971 for the science fiction Hugo Award.[16] A sequel, The Empire Blows Back, was released in 1983 and included most of the same musicians, performing this time under the name The Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra.[17]

Kanter had been in love with Grace Slick for some time, but she was involved in a relationship with the band’s drummer, Spencer Dryden. After their two-year affair ended, he finally had a chance with Grace.[1][13][18] In 1969, Kantner and Grace Slick began living together publicly as a couple. Rolling Stone magazine called them “the psychedelic John and Yoko.” Slick became pregnant, and a song about their love child’s impending birth “A Child Is Coming” appeared on Blows Against the Empire. Kantner and Slick’s daughter China Kantner was born in 1971.[19][20][21] Slick would later leave Kantner to marry Skip Johnson, a Jefferson Starship roadie.[2] Despite the split, Slick remained with the band.

Kantner and Slick released two follow-up albums. Sunfighter was an environmentalism-tinged album released in 1971 to celebrate China’s birth. He and Grace made news again in 1972, when they were accused of assaulting a policeman after their Akron, Ohio concert.[22][23] 1973’s Baron von Tollbooth and the Chrome Nun was titled after the nicknames David Crosby had given to the couple. Through a songwriter friend Kantner discovered teen-aged guitarist Craig Chaquico during this time, who first appeared on Sunfighter and would play with all of the incarnations of the Starship name through 1991.

After Kaukonen and Casady left the Airplane in 1973 to devote their full attention to Hot Tuna, the musicians on Baron von Tollbooth formed the core of a new Airplane lineup that was formally reborn as “Jefferson Starship” in 1974. Kantner, Slick, and David Freiberg were charter members along with late-Airplane holdovers drummer John Barbata, and fiddler Papa John Creach, along with Pete Sears (who, like Freiberg, played bass and keyboards), and Chaquico. Marty Balin also joined Jefferson Starship while their first album, Dragonfly, was still in the works, co-writing with Kantner the album’s biggest hit “Caroline.”[15][24]

After the 1978 release of the album Earth – to which Kantner contributed just one song – Jefferson Starship endured major personnel changes. Slick took a leave of absence, and Balin quit the group to pursue a solo career. No attempt was made to replace Slick, but Balin was replaced by Mickey Thomas, who was previously successful as a member of the Elvin Bishop Group.[25][26] An album dominated by Kantner compositions called Freedom at Point Zero was released to commercial success. Grace Slick returned for the follow-up album Modern Time which was another record featuring Kantner’s science fiction themes.[2]

1980s–1990s[edit]
In October 1980, Kantner was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in serious condition from a cerebral hemorrhage.[7] Kantner had been working in Los Angeles on an album when he became ill.[27] He was 39 years old at the time and beat considerable odds with a full recovery without surgery.[28] A year later, Kantner talked about the experience, saying, “If there was a Big Guy up there willing to talk to me, I was willing to listen. But nothing happened. It was all just like a small vacation.” It was his second brush with serious illness or injury, having suffered a serious motorcycle accident in the early 1960s: “I hit a tree at 40 miles an hour head first and nearly shattered my skull. I had a plate in there for a while.”[2] The injury from the motorcycle accident was credited with saving Kantner from serious complications from the cerebral hemorrhage; the hole left by the accident relieved the accompanying cranial pressure.[1]

Kantner in concert with Jefferson Starship, 1996.
In 1984, Kantner (the last founding member of Jefferson Airplane remaining) left the group, complaining that the band had become too commercial and strayed too far from its counterculture roots.[29] Kantner made his decision to leave while Jefferson Starship was in the middle of a tour.[25] Upon quitting Kantner took legal action against his former bandmates over the Jefferson name (the rest of the band wanted to continue as Jefferson Starship).[30] Kantner won his suit, and the group name was reduced to simply “Starship.”[12] Under the terms of the settlement, no group can call itself Jefferson Starship without Paul Kantner as a member, and no group can call itself Jefferson Airplane unless Grace Slick is on board.[31][32] The legal battle had personal repercussions as well, permanently damaging Kantner’s friendships with Mickey Thomas and Craig Chiquico.[33] In a 2007 interview, Kantner related that the legal battles did not put an end to the name issue: “Right now she’s (Grace Slick) suing me for some unknown reason, but generally we get along really well. Twenty years ago, feeling tired of the music business, she signed over her interest in Jefferson Starship to me, and now she’s suing me for using the name. I actually had to go and dig up the piece of paper she signed, and I showed it to her, and she said, “I don’t remember that.””[29][34] The legal issues came to an end in 2008, with Slick and former group manager Bill Thompson being declared the rightful owners of the name, but granting Kantner the right to use it for his band for a fee which was not disclosed.[35]

In 1985, following his departure from Jefferson Starship, Paul Kantner rejoined with Balin and Jack Casady to form the KBC Band, releasing their only album, KBC Band (which included Kantner’s hit, “America”), in 1987 on Arista Records.[11][32] There was a video made for “America” as well as a national KBC tour.[36] In 1986, Kantner headed for court with Slick and her then husband, Skip Johnson, over the taping of some telephone conversations.[37]

With Kantner reunited with Balin and Casady, the KBC Band opened the door to a full-blown Jefferson Airplane reunion. In 1988, during a San Francisco Hot Tuna gig where Kantner was performing, they found themselves joined by Grace Slick. This led to a formal reunion of the original Jefferson Airplane (featuring nearly all the main members, including founder Marty Balin, but without Spencer Dryden, who left in 1970.[38][39] A self-titled album was released by Columbia Records. The accompanying tour was a success, but their revival was short-lived, although the band never formally disbanded.[40] According to Grace Slick, the reunion began as a joke: “We hadn’t even talked for a year, and we were battling legally – in fact, there are still some standing lawsuits between me and Paul, something to do with the Airplane. Anyway, the idea was that I’d just sneak in, stand at the side of the stage and come out and sing ‘White Rabbit’ and see what Paul did. Paul never got the joke, but he liked it, the audience liked it, and that’s how it started.”[41]

1990s–present[edit]
Kantner and his Jefferson Airplane bandmates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.[42] The performance at the induction ceremony was the first time original members Marty Balin, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady, Spencer Dryden and Kantner had played together since 1970.[43] Grace Slick had to miss the ceremonies because of a serious leg infection, but sent a message which was delivered by Kantner, “Grace sends her love.”[44]

In 1991 Kantner and Balin reformed Jefferson Starship and Kantner continues to tour and record with the band as of 2013. Today Jefferson Starship is primarily a Paul Kantner solo band, with various former Airplane and Starship members dropping in for tours or specific shows. With their latest female vocalist Cathy Richardson and Kantner’s son Alexander Kantner on bass, Jefferson Starship released their first studio album in a decade, titled Jefferson’s Tree of Liberty in September 2008.[45] The album was a return to Kantner’s musical roots featuring covers of 1950’s and 1960s protest songs.[33][46]

In late 2010 Kantner started to compile collections of “sonic art” performed by him and various artists, including a mix of cover songs, sound effects, and spoken word, releasing multiple volumes under the title “Paul Kantner Windowpane Collective”.[47]
