*Here and Gone*
What remains up in the air however, is the fate that has befallen former Fabulous Thunderbird bassist
Preston Hubbard. Rumors of his demise have been circulating for weeks, followed by reports that no,
he'd been seen alive, though not well. His mother had placed a series of ads in the Chronicle seeking
a lead on his whereabouts a few weeks back and got no response. The latest tale making the rounds
concerns Hubbard being gunned down in a drug-related shooting last week in Houston, but calls to the
appropriate authorities there have yielded naught. At press time, Hubbard's whereabouts remain a mystery,
with a couple of factors steering this writer away from optimism. One is the degenerating state Hubbard was
alleged to have been in since he was released from the T-Birds, and the other is that, well, these things
always seem to come in threes. Austin Chronicle May 1996
To make matters sadder, former Fabulous Thunderbirds' bassist Preston Hubbard
disappeared and was reportedly dead, an assertion that has since been disputed
though no one has actually seen him. Austin Chronicle 1996
The mystery is finally solved! After years of speculation about where
Preston "we thought you wuz dead" Hubbard had gotten off to (including an ad placed
in the Chronicle classifieds by his mother pleading for information regarding his whereabouts),
he's back from the grave. Well, not exactly the grave, but from a stretch in prison
where he did time for possession of heroin. Unlike previous trips to the big house,
Hubbard decided to kick his 18-year drug habit and has been clean for well over a year.
Now that he's term-free and habit-free, expect to see the former Fabulous Thunderbirds
bassist playing around town. Austin Chronicle August 2000
