Thirty years. It's an eternity in rock 'n' roll, and a marathon for the bands who fly its tattered flag. Revisit the class of 1988, and the casualties are piled high: a thousand bands that blew up and burnt out. In this chew-and-spit industry, theSpin Doctors are the last men standing, still making music like their lives depend on it, still riding the bus, still shaking the room. They've never been a band for backslaps and self-congratulation. Even now, plans are afoot for a seventh studio album and another swashbuckling world tour, adding to their tally of almost two thousand shows. But faced with that milestone, even a band of their velocity takes a breath for reflection. “I'd never have guessed,” admits drummer Aaron Comess, “this would have turned into thirty years of making great music together.”

The Purple Room, Palm Springs, 1971. The Crazy Coqs is transformed as Sinatra: Raw takes up residency, following its success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

It is bitter sweet, as the disillusioned Frank relives the low points of his life, still seething from rejections nearly thirty years old, but his tales of woe are punctuated with the songs we know, and love and we see the character take refuge in the music and come alive.
