Every show starts with a cut from the ‘70s: Rediscovering the forgotten rockers, revisiting the once-hated disco beats, replaying the power-pop favorites. Next: copious amounts of new releases and occasional live bands. Also: I’m the biggest Nick Gilder fan on WFMU.

All Wolfman, all the time! Aroooooooooo!!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:06pm John Furst:

Man, haven't heard Stevie do this song in a while. Dirtbombs version has been my main go to these days.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:07pm Caryn:

Man, I love this track!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:07pm Holly in NC:

I'm number 3! I'm number 3!
Avatar Wed. 1/25/12 9:08pm efd:

ohhhh, so close Holly!

Hi everyone, great to have you here!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:09pm SteveL:

Holly: Seconds count
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:10pm Caryn:

Sorry, Holly :(
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:11pm Barkevious Mingo:

Todd and Burton Cummings battle it out for Wolfman homage supremacy!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:11pm Kat in Chicago:

Having flowers in your eyes sounds uncomfortable
Avatar Wed. 1/25/12 9:11pm efd:

Much as I like Burton Cummings I have to say that Todd wins that battle, hands down.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:12pm Parq:

Bark-Ming, Todd wins that one in a walk. EFD, am I suffering from a faulty memory or did the album mix of that Todd track not have the Wolfman on it?
Avatar Wed. 1/25/12 9:13pm efd:

Parq, you are correct, although I can't speak to your memory as a whole.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:14pm 12539:

Parq, I can assure you my older sister's 8 track didn't have it.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:15pm Barkevious Shabazz:

The Guess Who record was admittedly grim.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:15pm Holly in NC:

@Caryn - don't be silly, friend :-) Hello to all, hope everyone had a good week.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:17pm Justsheano:

Amazing show so far! Too Much Joy just made my evening.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:18pm Caryn:

I'm so happy that for once I'm awake for efd's show. It's a little after 4 a.m. here, so I usually miss the show because I'm sound asleep by now.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:19pm Caryn:

A bear with chainsaw hands: Stephen Colbert's worst nightmare.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:23pm Li'l Funk:

Hey, Funk, got anything appropriate for a 10-year-old with a broken tooth?...
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:24pm SteveL:

I think I need a Bear With Chainsaw Hands t-shirt.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:24pm Andres:

The Act kills! Thank you!
Avatar Wed. 1/25/12 9:24pm efd:

Aww! Hm, not sure if "Kicked In The Teeth" by AC/DC would be quite right... Ask him what time is the best time to go to the dentist, that'll cheer him up!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:26pm SteveL:

Unfinished Sweet by Alice Cooper also not comforting
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:27pm Thierry:

Bonsoir Evan. Pretty courageous of you to cover (mainly) both the seventies AND today's twenty-teens. Because both decades are not identified with single (or few) genres.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:27pm Caryn:

"All I want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth" wouldn't work either. Except to show the kid that there are worse things in this world than going to the dentist.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:29pm Holly in NC:

@li'l funk -
Clearly I am not efd, but if I were 10 and cool I'd probably like devendra's 'lend me your teeth' for the surrealism, or lillian leach's 'i'm gonna pick your teeth with an ice pick' for the violence.
Note I am an aunt, not a parent ;-)
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:30pm Caryn:

It's funny how the singing style alone tells you that The Act were an early 80s' British band... that is such a distinct sound. The Norwegian band by the same name were pretty good too. At exactly the same time. Funny that there was no name dispute that I'm aware of.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:31pm Holly in NC:

efd - thanks for earthquake!
Avatar Wed. 1/25/12 9:31pm efd:

@Li'l Funk if the 10 year old in question is listening (on a school night? Not likely), tell him his favorite song is about to come on.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:33pm Li'l Funk:

Ha! (But it's only his favorite when he can play you in with it.)
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:35pm mike east:

Hey funky people!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:37pm Andres:

The Act - According to wikipedia only the norwegian band exists.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:44pm Holly in NC:

Simon Stokes - who knew?

http://tinyurl.com/6ssyhjh

And there's lot more..
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:45pm Caryn:

I'm assuming Simon Stokes is the same Simon Stokes as in Simon Stokes & The Nighthawks & "Buzzard of Love" fame?
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:45pm Destroit:

greetings everyone, glad to be here
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:46pm Caryn:

Ha, Holly, found the same site as me :)
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:46pm mandolynw:

this show got my attention with that The Act song, and then the weird combination that ensued, followed by this awesome ditty... well, color me impressed. long-time wfmu listener, first-time efd listener. but i got your premium once during a marathon. keep it up!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:46pm Li'l Funk:

The lad is asleep, so feel free to defy the FCC or whatever. Besides, he can see the work on that playlist over there
<------
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:47pm PB:

I don't think Three Dog Night has been played on the radio in about 40 years. Remember how huge they were in the early 70s? They sold millions and millions of records.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:48pm Destroit:

Ya know, sometimes you stumble into taco leg and it's love at first sight
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:48pm Joe D.:

CRACK MOUNTAIN!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:49pm Joe D.:

FYI, this is a cover. The original is by Natural Child, who cover Liquor Store's "Gas Station" on the flip side of that 7".
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:50pm Martin:

I just wanna smoke crack and listen to EFD!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:50pm Caryn:

I kinda love that a band called Liquor Store have a song called "Gas Station".
Avatar Wed. 1/25/12 9:50pm efd:

Sorry everyone, had a crazy person on the phone.

Joe, thanks for the additional info - I didn't know that!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:51pm Joe D.:

they are possibly the most un-google-able bands in existence
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:52pm slick:

WOW!
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:52pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Whenever releasing your first record, always precede your name with,"The Incredible..." Skip the awkward rookie phase.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:54pm slick:

That Spiders song rocked my world. Completely.
  Wed. 1/25/12 9:55pm Joe D.:

Liquor Store
Liquor Store brooklyn
Liquor Store Ridgewood
Liquor Store Gas Station
Liquor Store "yeah buddy"

EFD I think you would really dig Natural Child, their LP "1971" was also in the new bin for awhile, might be gone now though. Got exactly.... zero plays according to accuplaylist. sigh.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:04pm Barkevious Shabazz:

The lead singer of yesterday's hitmakers, Fang, originators of Taco Leg's cover, once threw a glass ashtray squarely into the face of a co-worker of mine at the college station foor whom i was the m.d. wouch.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:06pm mordred:

eat more mouch
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:07pm Caryn:

Hah, misread the title of the track as "Tooth Decay"! I guess that 10-year-old with the dentist's appointment is stuck in my head.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:08pm Destroit:

It's the darker side of efd, I like it. And agh, Bark, the joy of indoor glass ashtrays. Them days are gone. :)
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:09pm Caryn:

Oh lord, OMD! Man, it's been a while since I've heard them.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:12pm Thierry:

OMD = Oh Mon Dieu! = Lord!
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:13pm Caryn:

Exactly, Thierry.

Orchestral Manures in The Dark
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:16pm Joe D.:

that was a wonderful fade out/in
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:18pm Holly in NC:

efd, I really liked 3:33! and always nice when you play to your chosen middle name ;-)
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:23pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Time to take Frank and Cookie out to orchestrate some manures in the dark.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:29pm Holly in NC:

@Barkevious -

nice!:-)
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:31pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi Funk Fans :)

Did you know there was a park in my neighborhood growing up that is called Cherry Hill Park?
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:33pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@Holly My 2 direct reports are bull terriers.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:34pm Randy in NC:

Speaking of overnight DJ's as EFD just did, I just discovered something I did not know about WFMU. That is that my teenaged daughter's beloved Jeff Mangum did a total of 9 overnight shows on WFMU back in 2002. They are listed in the archives as Jefferson and are pretty wild. http://wfmu.org/playlists/MU
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:34pm Holly in NC:

Yoo Hoo is such a great song, haven't really kept up with these guys.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:35pm Holly in NC:

@Randy -
Your teenage daughter has advanced tastes!
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:36pm Randy in NC:

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree I suppose...
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:37pm Danne D:

(for the record the crazy caller was not me)
I eschewed such shenanigans about a decade ago.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:38pm Danne D:

(Though I always made a point to remind Terre to cue up)

Avatar Wed. 1/25/12 10:40pm efd:

come on Danne, you should know I would never refer to you as a crazy caller. Belated greetings, everyone, having a tougher than usual time participating but it's great to see so many folks here! Thanks for listening!
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:41pm The Wondering:

did c. call in and you you to play Misty for her?
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:41pm Destroit:

back off my wounded Lions. ;) or my wounded Wings for that matter.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:41pm PB:

The Slumberland label has an impressive artist roster (in addition to the Terry Malts that efd just played): Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Crystal Stilts, Weekend, Black Tambourine, etc.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:41pm David B:

Oh man, you played Brodus Clay's entrance music! (Sadly, I was away, but I'm def going to have to listen to that section tomorrow and hear what you said about Chris from SC)
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:44pm PB:

As I recall, Play Misty for Me was a pretty creepy movie (especially for its time).
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:44pm The Wondering:

the ancestor of Fatal Attraction
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:46pm Destroit:

Interesting PB. Mostly good stuff from Crystal Stilts, only heard 3-4 songs. Weekend, the two songs I heard, were sonic awesome music. Cloud Nothings, some good some average but great potential. Thanks for the label education PB.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:47pm David B:

Great movie! I saw it at Lincoln Center two summers back as part of the Clint Eastwood retrospective. The screening I attended included Fistful of Dollars, Dirty Harry, and a skype chat with the man himself. During the chat, Eastwood talked about a prank he pulled on set. The bartender was played by a director he had worked with numerous times, and as revenge for having to do so many takes for him, he had the director perform the same take 20 times before Eastwood told the camera operators to put film in the camera!
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:47pm Caryn:

Yeah, if your new boyfriend or girlfriend calls "Play Misty for Me" a romantic movie, that's a clear sign that it's time to run.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:48pm SteveL:

Behold, the power of efd. He who draws music from the silence.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:49pm The Wondering:

it's a small subgenre called "homicidal psychotic date movie"
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:50pm Danne D:

Thanks EFD :) I know you wouldn't do that - you're too nice about such things :) Besides I'm a reformed crazy caller. Now I'm a crazy commenter :o)

Anyhow, you are killing it tonight, EFD. It is making my extremely itchy feet a little more bearable.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:50pm Destroit:

@ wondering: yes, spot on.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:51pm SteveL:

Earlier today I recalled how I once took a first date to see The Shining. Not much to chat about when it was over. There was no second date.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:52pm mordred:

re: so many things
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:52pm The Wondering:

All work and no play...
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:52pm Caryn:

I still think "The Shining" provides plenty of conversation material. As long as you don't start the chat with "Now that's how a marriage should be!"
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:54pm PB:

Never read a Stephen King book but the film adaptations of some of them have been great (the Shining and Shawshank come immediately to mind).
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:54pm The Wondering:

And the guy should not call the date up after parking back at his house to tell her: "Honey! Im HOME."
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:55pm Destroit:

Ha, look at efd snapping back to an "oh goodness" pop reality, love this shyt too.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:55pm Caryn:

Also, don't spend the rest of the date talking to her with your finger in a weird voice. And if you and your date happen to be called Jack & Wendy, you're screwed.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:55pm Barkevious Shabazz:

And then,invariably, the conversation goes from marriage to itchy feet. Then homicide.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:55pm PB:

efd is the real "king of pop".
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:56pm SteveL:

Honestly, I'd forgotten until now. Her name WAS Wendy. Could help explain things.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:57pm T-Zero:

@PB: Pet Sematary was great as a book, but really sucks as a movie.
  Wed. 1/25/12 10:58pm Caryn:

I find it interesting how the King books reference one another. He tends to use the same regions in his books. So for instance, Paul Sheldon drives past the Overlook Hotel in "Misery" before getting into his car crash.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:00pm Holly in NC:

I remember when my EX-husband & I had my antique brokerin' quilt-makin' tee-totallin' non-swearin' salt of the earth in-laws over for a movie ... D. picked Fargo, which he had seen (I had not).

Prostitutes & wood chipper AWKWARD.

D. explained later that he thought his mom would appreciate 'a strong female lead'
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:00pm mordred:

King lives in Maine he gets cabin fever and drinks a lot
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:01pm Danne D:

I must be a rare person - I have read exactly one Stephen King book: "The Dead Zone"
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:01pm PB:

Continuing on the movie theme, Fargo is far and away my favorite Coen brothers movie. It's brilliant.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:04pm T-Zero:

@Danne D: Not so rare. Pet Symatary's the only one I've read ;)
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:05pm Caryn:

"Stand By Me" is a great Stephen King movie. As is "The Dead Zone".
@Holly: Talk about awkward movie viewing experiences, our high school religion teacher told us at the start of one lesson: "We're gonna watch a movie to illustrate today's theme. I haven't seen it, but I understand it's about the seven deadly sins." It was "Se7en". I think we all spent most of the movie staring at the teacher's face as it slowly dawned on him that this was maybe not the best movie choice. (Though it was still less awkward than the time in university when the lecturer fastforwarded his video a little too much, past the stuff we were supposed to watch, to the porn he had taped after it.)
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:05pm SteveL:

The Stand is not a good book to read during the cold and flu season.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:05pm Holly in NC:

@PB - I do love Fargo,but I still love Blood Simple the most, I think.

And I grew up on Stephen King, everything through It.

And Kathy Bates in Misery strongest female lead ever ? ;-)
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:06pm Holly in NC:

@Caryn -
BOTH your stories are priceless. Especially re Se7en. Wow.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:07pm Caryn:

I can't name a favourite Coen Bros. movie. I like too many of them too much.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:09pm Danne D:

@T-Zero okay it might be two Stephen King books I've read
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:09pm Danne D:

Kathy Bates in Misery *shudder*
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:09pm Destroit:

Wow, nice story Caryn. Weird education stories, I'm not sure if I'd wish I had more or less.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:09pm John L.:

Took a girlfriend to see Dead Ringers; I think it bummed her out for the rest of our relationship. I love alot of Coen Brothers films, but Miller's Crossing is my favorite.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:09pm Caryn:

@Holly: really, both incidents illustrate the personality of the teachers. Our religion teacher was a naive dear, very meek and sweet. Our university lecturer came off extremely skeevy, with missing teeth, a bad combover and a distinct odour of old minced meat about him.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:12pm T-Zero:

Sounds like prime characters for Edward Albee...
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:13pm Holly in NC:

@Danne -

Hi! That same ex-husband wouldn't watch any other Kathy Bates movie for YEARS after Misery, she really got to him.

As did Nurse Ratched - I don't even know that actresses name *shudder*
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:13pm Destroit:

Caryn= wonderful - my interpretation. Best guess is that caryn wins with that equation!
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:13pm Caryn:

I've had a long line of weird teachers, from the primary school PE teachers (one was a perv with a brown leather swimsuit who would smell the students, one was an anorexic) to the junior high substitute who would throw stuff at the students, to the guy who would just tell us stories about the time he was struck by lightning in Rome, to the high school teacher who tended to break at least 2 pointers a week and throw desks around.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:14pm Holly in NC:

@John L - Dead Ringers, that's another GREAT (creepy) movie!
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:15pm PB:

Nurse Ratched was an unforgetable characer. Is her name Louise Fletcher?
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:15pm Caryn:

@Holly: Louise Fletcher. Her eyes always freak me out. Hell, even the "Spaced" parody of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" kinda creeps me out.
@Destroit: aww...
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:16pm jeff k:

hurrah's 2nd single "hip hip" is a classic.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:17pm Danne D:

and just like that EFD turns me into a crazy caller by offering Marshall Crenshaw tickets (which I missed out on - foiled by predialing the 209 number instead of the 200 number) *sigh* but thanks for always bringing the great prizes Evan - maybe next time will be my night :)
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:17pm PB:

@Caryn, a brown leather swimsuit? Now that's bizarre and incredibly creepy.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:18pm Holly in NC:

@Caryn -

You need to write a book. Seriously. You have the talent & the material!

Boy, looks like there are quite a few stories to catch up on here!

Is that the jeff k that I think it is? I don't know how I missed those guys back then, they're totally up my alley (then and now!).
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:20pm john:

A little late to the party here tonight, but let me agree with jeff about "hip hip," though I'd give three and a half cheers to "Gloria" as well. Loved Hurrah; still do!
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:20pm Caryn:

@PB: yep, I kinda think she would make a good David Lynch character. She also had a slightly Teutonic feel about her.
@Holly: aw shucks. I do dabble in writing, but mostly poems and short stories.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:20pm Holly in NC:

I am WAITING for this street sounds lp to hit Durham. It's been months. Grr.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:21pm Pokey:

Smooth.

Brown leather swimsuit makes me think twice, than 1 again, then ...efd confused me again. Dadgummut, at this point.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:21pm PB:

This is pretty funky, funk.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:21pm Holly in NC:

@Barkevious -

That took me a minute. For the win!
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:23pm jeff k:

yeah it's me. hurrah! were really one of the 1st bands to use Orange Juice/ Postcard as inspiration(1982/1983). Much like Nervus Rex , when they signed to a major it did not suit them, although they released 4 great singles prior to their signing.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:23pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@Holly cue my Jim Johnston victory theme!

  Wed. 1/25/12 11:28pm mordred:

I's got stoned with him on his Magic Bus at a Psychedelic Art Show about a year earlier in SF, no shit..
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:28pm Holly in NC:

@mordred -

no way. way?
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:29pm john:

Agree again about Hurrah; the early Kitchenware singles were fantastic; the first album, which I remember being really excited about, was a little dull and I lost sight of them after that. Still play the 45s, though.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:29pm Danne D:

*note to self - avoid sitting next to mordred*
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:30pm mordred:

trute!! On his Magic Bus I smoked some serial ganja while he pondered different mushrooms to partake..Serial as a heart attack..
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:30pm Holly in NC:

efd, this is good & creepy, quite fitting.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:32pm Caryn:

Man, the biggest writer I ever partied with is Terry Pratchett. Nowhere near Kesey in the interesting stakes!
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:35pm miss cheri:

evan & danne i got to split now, have a good night! keep up the funk,evan.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:35pm Augie Rios:

Mamacita I go sleep now.

Best to all of you, sleep calls, good night and thanks for the music efd, and the tragic stories everybody else.

g'night cheri

@Caryn -
Was he at least funny? That same ex-husband was somewhat into him in his younger D&D, cosmic wimpout, Monty Python, Douglas Adams days.

Oh hey, Vangelis!
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:37pm mordred:

No serial i sawr him in SF and was on his bus thats how i knew it were him

It's a good thing Noah's not coming on at midnight, he would NOT be happy that I haven't finished my dinner (salad) yet.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:38pm John L.:

May be the best thing Vangelis ever did; love this song.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:38pm Danne D:

you'd figure one of the horses would be grey or maybe there'd be a roan thrown in there
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:38pm PiLA:

you're playing this just for the drum parts
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:38pm Holly in NC:

I miss Noah.

No offense to the awesome Mary, of course! Mary, if you're here, I love your show.
Avatar Wed. 1/25/12 11:39pm efd:

PiLA you are *very* close to being right on the money.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:41pm mordred:

I used to shoplift with perry too thats where been caught stealing came from hahaha!! you dont believe me!!! hahaha!!
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:41pm John L.:

This reminds me of when I used to listen to WNEW, when I was a kid. I think Alison Steel used to play it, probably followed by Lothar and the Hand People.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:42pm Destroit:

Holy shit, "cosmic wimpout" might be the phrase of the year. Might as well drop charlatans 'opportunity' at this point.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:42pm Danne D:

@Holly Noah is putting up new shows via soundcloud fyi:
http://soundcloud.com/coffee-break-radio
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:43pm mordred:

Its a small cosmic world..
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:44pm Holly in NC:

@Destroit -

Don't tell me you never played Cosmic Wimpout! I still have tons of die, and a t-shirt, and, er, well .... (they're all packed in the attic, I swear)
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:45pm Holly in NC:

Tyler, you sure screwed up the anthem the other night. Barkevious's dogs must have been in agony!
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:46pm Jon Von Albertson:

Yer gonna love the new me.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:47pm Holly in NC:

@Danne -
I do indeed follow him there (soundcloud)
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:47pm Danne D:

@Holly :) good
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:48pm Caryn:

@Holly: I only meant not as interesting in terms of cultural significance or choice of substances (double vodka on the rocks is not quite the same as mushrooms and hallucinogens). A delightful and funny man all around, and very sweet. Also with him was Robert Rankin, who is utterly hilarious. I rather suspect Neil Gaiman is utterly exasperated if he ever hangs out with both for more than half an hour.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:48pm PB:

Steven Tyler makes my skin crawl, a poor man's Mick Jagger in a destitute man's Rolling Stones. 60 something years old carrying on like an idiot 17 year old.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:49pm G:

Fox made him sing the national anthem on a Fox football game as an Idol promo because Idol's ratings were way down last week (first week of its new season).

You can make him do personal appearances, but you can't make him sing well if he didn't want to be there in the first place.

Gotta love the picture on the main screen

@PB -
Oh, give him the Rocks lp, at least! And many folks are happy about his contribution to Liv
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:52pm Danne D:

http://goodfellasnj.com/ is the address for the restaurant owned by the Dr. who delivered me - it's in Garfield.

Always came across as a total Mick wannabee
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:53pm mordred:

pb- who cares we're run by goldman sacks sending us to ww3 you wish you had tylers spunk at 67
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:54pm Holly in NC:

Er, on occasion through the years (early 80s ?)he did a better job!

I just finished reading 'Life', btw.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:55pm Holly in NC:

@Danne - I totally want to have dinner there.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:56pm PB:

@Holly, I'm not defending Jagger (or the Stones) they have been irrelevant since Exile on Main Street, but they did have an amazing 10 year run from 63 to 72.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:58pm Danne D:

@Holly you come up to NJ I'll treat ya. I hear it's good.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:58pm Holly in NC:

@PB -
Absolutely. NO argument. only LOVE. And I'd throw in Some Girls.
  Wed. 1/25/12 11:59pm Danne D:

@holly you should come work the phone room for EFD during the marathon :)
