After disbanding in the late 1980s, the various members of the
Del Fuegos went on to lead remarkable second lives. In the New Year,
however, all four original members of the acclaimed Boston quartet will
come together for a 12-city tour of the Eastern Seaboard and Midwest.
The Del Fuegos are among a handful of legendary rock and roll exports from
Boston, Mass. Recording alongside X, the Blasters, Los Lobos, and others
for L.A. ‘s Slash Records, the Del Fuegos burned brightly through the
1980s. They played more than 200 dates a year internationally and
released albums that were consistently favorites of audiences and
critics alike. Even before they released their first record, Rolling
Stone named them a band to watch. Touring with groups ranging from the Kinks
to the Replacements to INXS, ZZ Top and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers,
the Del Fuegos played a style of rock and roll that knocked down the
door, stole your girlfriend, and won your heart. Over six busy years,
they built a reputation. And then they disappeared.
Of course, not every disappearance is of the same kind. In the case of the Del
Fuegos, it ‘s the character of their disappearance that is finally so
Intriguing. After breaking up, none of the band members took a job at a
bait shop. Neither did any of the band members take jobs at Guitar
Center. The Del Fuegos dispersed . . . widely. In time, some reports
filtered in: two of the band members earned PhDs, one launched a drug
and alcohol rehab, and one started a new movement in family music. No
one would have called it. Four members . . . and each one reinvented
himself. And now they’re back, if only for a short visit.
