So, today I decided to check out Cheap Trick's back catalog of sorts. I went and listened to the band that Cheap Trick was before they were Cheap Trick, and even way before they were Sick Man of Europe. They were a band called Fuse. And holy s**t, they're amazing! It sickens me that they were not popular. That self-titled album they released in 1969 is killer. Tom Petersson (then Peterson) and Rick Nielsen worked good together even then. Tom was only 18 when he joined in 1968. Sucks they disbanded, but I suppose it did turn into Cheap Trick, which is wonderful. But Fuse was a great band. Really.
Alright, it's time to have some fun with these pictures.
"Dream Police" (1979) - Just because.
"ELO Kiddies" (1977)
"Little Sister" (1985)
"Across the Skies [ Fuse ] " (1969) - Damn fine song.
Oh wow, looking at Tom's beautiful sleeping face...oh no, I just yawned. Damn it, I'm tired. Thanks, Tom.
Oh yeah, smirk at my tiredness, Rick!
Dave Grohl touched Rick's guitar earlier. You had better watch out, Dave. NO ONE touches Rick's guitar.
Slash and Zander.
Tom - sleeveless. Nice.
I think I already posted this one before, but Rick's face cracks me up, as always.
That is a small hallway...
Well, hello Robin.
You all know I love this guy.
Is he not Sweaterman?
Oh God, now Bun E is asleep and I just yawned again.
Why's it gotta be blurry? It's cute, though.
Tom, watch out! The Dream Police are coming to get you!
No, that is not Taran Killam with Tom Petersson.
He has a smile that can light up the room. (plus I can see his silver tooth:heart:) - Yeah, I'm weird. We've established that.
Skinny Tom. Well, he's still skinny.
