Los Straitjackets: Honoring Bandmate Daniel Amis
On June 11, 2007, Fresh Air broadcast a concert and conversation with Los Straitjackets, the Nashville-based indie-rock band that's made a name performing surf-rock classics from behind Mexican wrestling masks.
On today's Fresh Air, excerpts from that interview are being replayed to honor band member Danny Amis, who is recovering from a cancer treatment after being diagnosed with multiple myeloma.
The band is about to play a series of benefit shows to help Amis and will later tour without him this summer. Information is available on their website.
