Support live music! Come to our Jan 19th show at El Mercado Backstage!
My friends showed up in numbers for my CD Release Party. Thank you all! That was my first real show as “David Fore and Friends”. So, the challenge is to get folks to come out for this second gig this Jan 19th at El Mercado Backstage. If they are kind enough to show up, I’ll most likely get more shows there, and it’s a great place to play! So come see Woot Talley, Ronn Roberts and myself Jan 19th, and help support my new band and local music! Larry Seaman and his band are also on the bill! You may know Larry as an artist, or your may remember his band in the ’80’s “The Standing Waves.” Larry’s band now features Chris Bailey, Marty Hobrastch, and Lisa Gammache.
David Fore has pounded the steady beat behind legendary Texas bands Bubble Puppy and The Eggmen for decades, and now, with his first solo recording project, The History of Bacon, he steps in front of drum kit as his own man. The album title is a giveaway for the kind of irreverent humor in his distinctive songs. And like everything he’s ever done, the whole album is great Texas rock and roll. ~Rush Evans, KOOP 91.7 Radio
“I know David as a drummer. I didn’t realize he was a singer/songwriter too. His songs make me smile.”~Lloyd Maines
Best review of the CD so far is from Johnny Reverb (The Lotions). He said “I like it, and I hate everything!”

I expected many folks would have Thanksgiving activities, and would miss the show. Despite that, the show was extra special! Great crowd, most of whom had the CD, so there were some “sing a longs”! All of my family were there, along with some Bubble Puppy, and some Eggmen! My band played better than ever, and I had a great night singing. I was able to get the meanings of the songs across, and my voice was behaving and doing what I told it to! And thanks to the Fabulous Jacks!
Thus begins this journey inside the mind of David Fore. Prepare yourself – it’s a unique place to be.
David’s “taste of fame” began as an original member of Bubble Puppy of “Hot Smoke and Sassafras” fame, a record which hit #14 on the national US charts in 1969, and his drumming for that band gained him entrance into the Austin Chronicle’s Hall of Fame.
After Bubble Puppy, David’s band D-Day enjoyed #1 status on DJ Rodney Bingenheimer’s Rodney on the Rock show on KROQ in Los Angeles with “Too Young To Date,” which David co-wrote. This led to a trip to England resulting in the 1983 release of the band’s eponymous LP on A&M Records. His subsequent work with The Eggmen has garnered him 11 wins in the “Best Cover Band” category of the Chronicle’s music poll, where he consistently lands in the Top 5 of the “Best Drummer” category.
Although drumming is his madness, Dave has always played the guitar as well. But he didn’t get really serious about making music on six strings until 2017, when the muses unexpectedly chose to shine their lights on him, and ten songs mysteriously appeared in his previously drum-centric brain. Seriously. These songs just showed up. What songwriter wouldn’t love that?
The contents of this little silver disc are the result of that unexpected creative gusher, and David decided – in typical unpredictable Fore fashion — to gather them under the collective title, The History of Bacon. Because why not?
So, when people ask me “Dave why did you name your new CD The History of Bacon”, I usually say “I Did?”. Then after I remember I actually did name it The History of Bacon, I say “Well, there is a song about Bacon on the CD, and if you slow it down and listen to it backwards, it says “Bacon is dead”, which is true.
