All in the rock family A tuba player from Disneyland and the saxophonist from Goo Goo Dolls get in the act Thursday at the A Perfect Circle show in Long Beach-(U-Press Telegram; 3/2004), 31 Aug 2003 [cached]
His mother was a classical pianist while his father, Stan Freese, was a professional tuba player as well as musical director at Disneyland.
"Actually, he" s still there," Freese says of his father."He has moved up the ranks, and he" s now entertainment director, hiring and firing banjo players.But in the summer, he likes to hire himself, so he can actually get out from behind the desk and play at Carnation Gardens.After all, he is a professional tuba soloist, and he has appeared on a few Vandals records with me.And he loves the music we're doing with A Perfect Circle."
The music with that group is certainly a bit different from the punk rock that the busy Freese plays with the Vandals, or the alternative strains he hammers out for Devo, another group he is a member of.The quintet, which, besides Freese, includes Maynard James Keenan on vocals, Billy Howardel on guitar, Jeordie White on bass and James Iha on guitar and keyboards, comes with quite a pedigree: Keenan is the frontman for Tool, Iha comes from Smashing Pumpkins and White most recently played with Marilyn Manson.
After some personnel changes (Freese remained from the first incarnation), the group released its second CD, "Thirteenth Step," ' late last year.
"They both sound like the same band," ' explains Freese.
Freese dispels a common perception that many fans and critics have had about the band.
"No, this is not a side project for any one of us," ' he says.
