Random Thoughts by Mark McGrath

June 30, 2014

Greetings from Alton, Illinois as we enter the first week of the Under The Sun Tour 2014. We could not have asked for a better first show playing front of 40,000 adoring fans in Omaha, Nebraska! Incredible to see all the bands get so much love from a gigantic sea of people...everything I'd hoped this tour would be when I first envisioned UTS. Needless to say, gonna be a bitchin' summer.

Very quickly, we added a new bass player, his name is Kristian Attard (@kristianattard) and has toured the world with the likes of Jason Mraz, Heart, Zedd, etc. . He's another Aussie just like the homey Serg, and they are actually in a killer band together called Intergalactix. We unfortunately lost Serg to Earth, Wind and Fire, and wish him nothing but the best, but are so happy to have found Kristian as it feels like he's been in the band for years. And of course, brother Dean Butterworth (Ben Harper, Morrissey, Good Charlotte) is our rock solid foundation behind the drums and he sings like an angel to! These guys are all world class musicians and human beings, and Rod and I are so lucky to share the stage with them. Also, a big thank you to the hardest working crew in the business that I'm happy to call my friends, Dave Fisher, Mitch Townsend, Dickie Bussola, and Tom Hudak...

For the past three years, he's spent his summers on the road taking advantage of the thirst for nostalgia with his Under the Sun tour. Playing with his hits with his contemporaries is a far cry from what Sugar Ray was at its inception.
