Band Fuel Really Good, According to Local Man

Madison, WI – After a weekend spent sitting on the couch, eating Cheetos, and browsing Youtube, local man Chris Doersen has become a fan of the band Fuel.  “You know, I heard them on the radio Friday and decided to look them up on Youtube to see some live performances.  I gotta tell ya, they really rock.”

Fuel, not rocking

Chris said that he hadn’t branched out past their three well known hits (Hemorrhage, Shimmer, and Falls on Me), but that he also doesn’t need or want to.  “There are so many live performances online that each one sounds new.  These are so good that I don’t want to take a chance listening to another song. ”  Reading a few articles on Wikipedia also brought him up to date on the band’s history.  “Did you know that they broke up?  Seems like the lead singer may have had throat problems.  Cool thing is that Brett (Scallions, lead singer) formed a new band with the bassist called Re-Fueled.  That’s clever!  These guys are fucking rocking!”  As of press time, Chris had started repeatedly watching videos of Tonic playing “If You Could Only See.”

    Hummelstown, PA – Yeah, these guys really did rock! I used to follow them in the 90’s, just before they got big. In those days Brett had long black hair, and they had a drummer named Joey. They used to do cover tunes blended in with their own material. I remember getting drunk as shit and jumping up on stage to sing, “I wanna be sedated”. They were actually cool about it, even though I was kinda embarrassed for doing it. Anyway, they were really nice guys back then and I remember them all fondly.

    They used to play at this club outside of Harrisburg, PA called Wanda’s. They basically became the house band there and along the way became friends with one of the female dj’s on 105.7 the X. Once this happened, you heard their songs being played every day on her show. Before you knew it, they completed the “Hazeltown” demo and they were on their way to stardom with a new drummer, and then a few years later, new singer.

    Once Bret left the band, it was all down hill from there. I miss they days of hanging out with the guys after the shows at Wanda’s. My ex-girlfriends friend got a pair of Brett’s boxers by telling him she didn’t have anything to wear to swim in their pool, at their house in Mechanicsburg, PA.

    Good times…….hmmmmmmmm
