John Waldo "Fee" Waybill (born September 17, 1950 in Omaha, Nebraska), is the lead singer and songwriter of the band the Tubes. Waybill has also worked with other acts, including Toto, Richard Marx, and Billy Sherwood.
Waybill, along with the Tubes, appeared in Robert Greenwald's Xanadu (1980), and Lou Adler's Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains (1982). In the latter film, he played the character Lou Corpse, the washed-up frontman of a band called the Metal Corpses. In 1984, a year after the Tubes released one of their most successful albums, Waybill released his first solo album called Read My Lips. In 1996, Waybill released another album called Don't Be Scared By These Hands.
During the early 1980s, Waybill appeared as himself on a short-lived television program called Rock-N-America, usually performing as a street reporter who annoyed pedestrians with nonsensical interviews. He also made a cameo in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure as one of "The Three Most Important People in the World", and in one of the "Fishin' Musician" skits on Second City TV.
