JETBOY PREPARES TO EMBARK ON ‘THE GLAM YEARS’ TOUR:
July 3, 2008
Returning from a 20 year self imposed exile, Jetboy has reemerged sporting a blend of passion and edginess that the music industry desperately needs. To that end, Jetboy is preparing to embark on “The Glam Years” tour which began June 27 in Sunnyvale, California.
Having endured not only personal tragedy with the death of their bass player Todd Crew, the band was derailed at the peak of their success by a massive reorganization at Elektra Records. The members of Jetboy, sporting a renewed enthusiasm, are embarking on a mission dedicated to completing the journey that the four original members started those many years ago.
In an industry where bands fight to stay relevant, Jetboy is doing it with relative ease. With the release of their recent remake of the Johnny Cash hit Folsom Prison Blues, Jetboy has produced a bona fide winner that is appealing to not only their original fan base, but a younger alternative audience that has embraced the band as one of their own.
Long recognized as one of the premier acts of the 1980’s, that legacy continues today with the recent release of The Glam Years Movie and CD. The compilation features a 1986 performance at the Whiskey A Go-Go, interviews as well as a 21 track audio CD.
Jetboy is represented by agent Richard Riis from RnR Management. For more information on Jetboy, please visit www.jetboyrocks.com or Myspace.com/Jetboyrocks.
