Still, the Sidewinders were great, and imagining what could have been is largely a waste of time. For a few years back there, they made Tucson proud and brought positive attention to our city and state. The Old Pueblo owes Dave and Rich a hearty thank you. We also need to remember what their story tells us about the awesome, though too often unappreciated, potential we have as a community. Band's farewell, book release bound to please die-hard fans.
Sand Rubies take a look back. By Dan Sorenson Dsorenson azstarnet. If a band plays in the woods, is it making music? Yeah, but it's not popular music. Fans are needed for that. And almost certainly there would be no coffee-table book about a Tucson band that first broke up 18 years ago without fans. Finical says he spent a lot of his more youthful hours listening to the Sidewinders and Sand Rubies at Nino's and other local music venues in the band's bright, but troubled, run between and Finical, with a background in graphic design, said he's not entirely sure that Sidewinders founders Rich Hopkins and Dave Slutes "got it" when he first proposed the photo book.
But he says Hopkins and Slutes, as well as some other former members of the group, signed off on the idea and gave him access to their caches of band memorabilia. The roughly 80 photos in the hardbound book - titled "Came on Like the Sun," a reference to a song by the same name from the Sidewinders' album, "Auntie Ramos Pool Hall" - are a combination of promotional photos commissioned by record companies and incidental snap shots and fan photos the band members accumulated.
The photos evoke memories of good times for Finical. They also give him that feeling of getting backstage, seeing things about this band that he wasn't around to see for himself - outtakes from record company photo shoots, snapshots from European tours. This is a case where the fan actually knows something the artist may not. Band members may get their egos stroked by fame and publicity, but the fans are there because they love the music.
They pay to be there. They choose to spend their time and money on a certain band rather than another one, or something else entirely. Slutes said he first felt the idea of the photo book was an ego-serving concept, a puzzling celebration of a band that "made a minor blip" on the worldwide music scene.

- Angels - Auftrag des Himmels, Band 3.
- Forum for Science, Industry and Business.
- Serien: "A" - TV Wunschliste.
But he said Finical's approach, as a longtime fan, put it in different light. Finical said he knew those photos would mean a lot to him and other fans. But, to the band, the photos probably sparked memories of what was going on when they were taken: the band burned through rhythm sections and Hopkins and Slutes had a period where they didn't get along.
He has a career that is bigger in Europe than in the U. Slutes is best known today as the energetic talent booker for Club Congress and occasional appearances under an alias with spoofy lounge act The Zsa Zsas. The Sidewinders, later renamed the Sand Rubies after a suit with a Carolina band that claimed first dibs on the name, were one of the biggest deals to come out of Tucson's music scene in the mids and s. It was back in the day when major-label record deals mattered, and the Sidewinders landed more than one over the years.
But the lawsuit and other legal problems held up release of a new album, stalling their career for more than two years. A couple of their releases charted but never broke into the top 10 lists. They never had the big single - the radio hit that could have taken them to the next level of national recognition the way "Hey, Jealousy" did for Tempe's Gin Blossoms.
They folded in , but reunited in and played locally, toured Europe and released recordings between and Since then, Slutes says, the band never really broke up, but hasn't played regularly. And more recently, since longtime bassist Ken Andre moved to Texas, he said it's difficult to keep the Sand Rubies going as a working band.
The fighting days with Hopkins are long over, Slutes said. We're very lucky. We got to enjoy what we had. We got into it the band because of the music. We just wanted to make songs and be in a band. Fourth Ave. It's nice out here in Tucson right now it is raining or sprinkling! Ken Andree has left Tucson for Austin,Texas but is coming back to play this one last show. Is it really the END?

Sure hope so We are making a new album together and I think we are finally making the rock and roll record people have been waiting for.. All the same, it's gonna be the best album ever cuz this band is rock solid! But it's allot and I am diggin life! In their day the Sidewinders crafted some of the most memorable and timeless tunes ever to emerge not only from the Arizona scene, but the Amerindie underground at large.
I should know; I was one of those fans. This was during the pre-Internet age, mind you, when following a band involved a lot more than just calling up a Wikipedia entry or a Facebook page and clicking on an MP3 download link; the resulting degree of devotion could be profound to the point of startling. Legacies are forged over time, of course, and the years have seen a fair share of vicissitudes for both Hopkins and Slutes, with albums typically bookending protracted periods of inactivity for the band. Long may they strike. It was an 18lb.
Turkey hunting for me was a spiritual experience. I had allot of time to pray and thank God for everything. The woods were so beautiful! Ein Gen i us s! We did see Edgar but he missed our show!

Zocalo Cafe, the newest eatery in Blanco, has opened, bringing fresh, organic, and local food choices to its patrons. Owner Rich Hopkins, a musician, was born in Texas, raised in Arizona, and has traveled extensively throughout Europe and South America.
Drawing on his experiences and passions, Hopkins wanted to create a place that combined all of them, including food, coffee, music, and art. Chef Brisco prepares a daily special everyday, including a soup of the day. Ingredients are bought locally and organically when available, with an emphasis on being health conscious.
The menu includes a European breakfast served from 8am to am, with choices such as seasonal fruits, homemade granola, greek yogurt, eggs, whole wheat pancakes, and home fries. For lunch, Zocalo offers paninis, sandwiches, salads, soups, and baked potatoes. In early May, Hopkins plans on being able to serve beer and wine and is also planning on having steak and fish dinners grilled outside on the new outdoor grill. And, of course, to bring it all together, Hopkins plans to have live music weekly.
Zocalo Cafe is located at Pecan St.

It seems like this move was motivated by love, family and financial security. I love Ken and will miss him dearly. We have fought and loved and traveled the world making great music. Ken has been, consistently, my most loyal band mate for the last 12 years since he joined the Sand Rubies on our first tour of Europe in He understands what my music needs cuz he is a part of the music.

We are open for breakfast and lunch Wed-Sunday.
I plan on building a German-style beer garden in the back of the cafe so we can grill steaks and bratwursts and serve cold beer on those warm Texas nights.

Und jetzt gibt es sogar ein neues Album von ihm, mit dem wohl die wenigsten gerechnet haben, auch wenn er mal eine Platte namens "All That May Do My Rhyme" aufgenommen hatte. Es dauerte auch nicht lange und Jon machte einen ersten "Inspektionsrundgang" durch den Club. Wohlwissend, dass neben mir auch noch Julia Vetter von der Band "Fan The Fire" unter den Besuchern weilen wird, entdeckte er uns auch gleich. Jon weihte mich auch gleich ein, dass Roky maximal Minuten spielen wird.
Was er allerdings mit seiner Band in den vorausgesagten 75 Minuten bot, war schlichtweg berauschend - psychedelic eben! Er ist der eigentliche Bandleader! Dann ist Schluss, auch wenn es die Fangemeinde nicht so recht wahrhaben will. Roky gab sich lieber dem Schlaf der Gerechten hin! Julia und ich tingeln mit Jon noch 'ne ganze Weile durch den Club, bevor es an das erneute Abschiednehmen geht. Ist schon ein toller Typ, dieser Jon Sanchez! Februar ab 1.

I like playing the smaller towns.. Berlin is the exception.. Plus we are playing dec. The Hut cuz of Finnie one of 3 owners who is the coolest guy around.. I like playing free shows at Gudalupe's Casa Maria.. Will you make another Luminarios album? And what do the people expect from you musically and are you delivering this? First off, me and Pres. Edgar Heckann from Blue Rose get along really well..
He and I have a good relationship. No contracts.. We are family really. I think Edgar wants me to record a heavier record next time and I am going to deliver just that. In the last 3 years since i have been dating Lisa Novak and writing and singing with her, I have been allot more conscious about singing and learning to write different kind of songs and i think we have done that Lisa is a great singer who does the majority of harmonizing with me now. I am very proud of our singing together plus Ken's harmonies really make the band sound different and special..
Singing this well was never a priority before in the Luminarios especially during the Mike Davis era when were very loud. As far as what the fans want.. I know a few people miss the old days of being really loud but that is life. I am almost 53 and my musical priorities have changed but I will return with another blistering rock album.. I love him.. In the 15 years of touring Germany, have you become more succesful? No, not really. Like all business' there have been ups and downs and I think I have held steady with the German fans. I feel like I have weathered some tough times.
What makes your relationship between the German fans and you so special? They accept me for who I am and they like my songs and guitar playing. In my music, i share my soul with them and they seem to enjoy my spirit. I am deeply honored to my fans. I made it home safely tonight. Rich and I talked about how sweet the birthday party and being at your home was on Sunday. Thank you for everything you do!

It is hard to believe we were all together for breakfast and now 12 hours later back in Houston We will miss you and Marion and everyone's love! George schreibt via Facebook kurz und knapp: " I feel the same way about you and Marion as you guys feel for us From June 25th to 27th , the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau Germany will be presenting a new solution for acoustic quality inspection allowing contact-free, non-destructive testing of manufactured parts and components. The method which has reached Technology Readiness Level 6 already, is currently being successfully tested in practical use together with a number of industrial partners.
The quality of additively manufactured components depends not only on the manufacturing process, but also on the inline process control. The process control ensures a reliable coating process because it detects deviations from the target geometry immediately. Fraunhofer ILT has been developing optical sensor technology specifically for production measurement technology for around 10 years. The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified.
