    "you know, there will be a lot of drug too...Of course I will be alright... thanks for asking, but the binges will eventually lead our lead guitar player to distance from ourselves... just for years later get better and change his name"

    Pretty sure the guitarist, since the binge induced separation from his last band, is now going by Zanzibar Buck Buck McFate.

  9. What the hell's wrong with "There She Goes" by the Velvet Underground, or for that matter, REM's cover on Dead Letter Office?

  13. Now, you know it's not cool to post a link and ridicule a guy like that....

    ....ya gotta post the text to guard against it getting taken off of CL!

  14. Remember those old commercials that said, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste"? Well, here's the exception that proves the rule.

    Many think fame is a vending machine.
    Put in a dollar and get millions out.
    Throw a switch,instant celebrity.
    You think people would learn from hundreds of thousands of other examples.
    That tired old tale of "Rock and Roll Johnny"

    He's right about one thing though.
    They'll all be homeless and/or dead drug burnouts in quicktime.

  19. Vegan Coke Heads -- awesome name for a band, plus it fits in with @two fingers recipe for a good band name -- three short words, easily converted into initials -- VCH!!!
