                                  Fuel is out on the road again, but this time it is on a headline mission of their own. This summer the band toured as an opening act for Aerosmith. The experience has gifted them with some mass exposure and certainly some new fans. Frontman Brett Scallions looks the part, 100% pure rock star and it shows. These guys have been making nusic together since 1994 when there first two songs were recorded "Gray" and "Blind." An extensive world tour followed the release of their debut album "Sunburn" (Epic Records 1998) and soon made this band a roadworthy, "love to tour" rock band.

                   Their latest album "Something Like Human," also out on Epic Records was released last year in September. The album has been embraced by the more radical FM community and gets a lot of radio play around the country with the most popular tune being "Bad Day." Of course they played this new song at the show, but I was much more impressed with the rest of their repertoire. I long for a day when a band's best music can be heard on the radio, instead of just the tunes deemed "most popular" or with an accompanying video. If I had a dime for every time I've heard "Run to the Hills" on the radio. I would have given a dollar to have heard "Wrathchild" or "Murders In the Rue Morgue" just once and I'd still have a trillion dollars.

               Anyway, the concert was rockin'. The show was opened up by Saliva and they rocked the house down for about fifty minutes with some crazy new tunes. Then Fuel lit the place up with a blaze of fire and played some of their older songs with the meat of their set being songs from the latest album. The last song was a great tune, Brett came to the microphone with his red, white and blue guitar and the crowd screamed with patriotic love for our country. I asked the sound booth for a set list, they had none, and was unable to even locate one on the stage. Oh well, better luck for me next time. Many a pick was tossed out by both bands though. The tour continues, dont miss it in your town. Thanks for reading and we'll see ya at the shows.
