The music of Mad Fables has stayed alive for over thirty-five years. They are: Mike Dugan (guitar), Jeff Hays (bass), Spence Hiller (drums), Michael Radtke (keyboards) amd Rich Rheiner (guitar).
Why this name?
It was after being drunk in a Miami hotel. Radtke wanted the group to be called Crazy Tails.
Do you play live?
Play live? When you reach the age of geezer, all playing is live.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Musicians will have to make their money from live performances rather than selling records. Internet conglamerates will figure out a way to make taheir nickel on each distribution of an mp3. A new free-music scene will develop. Mark my words.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
no. we have nothing to offer each other.
