Something About The Waterboys

Dave DiMartino, Creem, April 1986

SUPPOSE FOR JUST a moment there was a fellow who named his band the Waterboys because "a Waterboy was something fluid and ever-changing" and also because it was part of a lyric ("And I am the Water Boy, the real game's/Not over here") from Lou Reed's Berlin. And suppose he used to be in a couple of other bands, too, called Funhouse and The Red And The Black.
