Rock Ballad of The Week: The Del Fuegos “Inside You”

Lyrics not availabe

The Del Fuegos were a 1980s garage-style rock band. Formed in 1980, the Boston-based band gained success in 1986 on success of their songs “Don’t Run Wild” and “I Still Want You” and appearing in a widely seen television commercial for a beer company. The band’s fans included Tom Petty, who appeared on one of the band’s songs and featured them as an opening act on one of his tours.

The relationship between brothers Warren Zanes and Dan Zanes, then and now, has been described as “fractious”. Shortly after the band was dropped by Slash Records due to the commercial disappointment of their third album for the label, Warren left the band, as did Woody.  After Dan and Tom recruited two replacement members, they released a fourth album with RCA Records. The band broke up within a year of the album’s release. Dan later said of the group’s demise, “The ’80s were over, we were over.”

On June 23 and 24, 2011, the band played together for the first time in 21 years at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, Massachusetts. These shows raised money for Right Turn, a rehab program run by Woody. Later, they embarked upon a reunion tour beginning in February 2012 and ending in Dan and Warren’s home town of Concord, New Hampshire, at the Capital Center for the Arts on March 4, 2012.

The reunited band also recorded eight new songs in three days, releasing them on February 21, 2012, as an EP titled Silver Star.
