As the Suns made their home debut Friday, new additions Grant Hill, Brian Skinner, Alando Tucker, and D.J. Strawberry were officially unveiled to the public.
One addition that might not have been as noticeable was the modernization of the Suns’ theme song. Originally conceived in 1991 by composer Daniel Lessner, the Suns’ theme has gone 16 years without being modified in any way.
“I never dreamed that the music would run for as it long as it did, so after about 10 years I called and introduced myself to (Director of Broadcasting) Dan Siekmann,” Lessner said. “Every year over the last seven years he would look into it and come back to me and say, ‘Maybe next year.’ So, this is finally the 'maybe next year.'”
