Lost to the Beatles and Nirvana. I can handle that.

Dude.

That is actually the funniest thing anyone has ever said about my unwieldy surname. And I've heard a lot.

The highest of pop culture honors. Actually met him a few times and he's now buddies with my bandmate Chris. Last time the band was in LA they did Boston's "More Than a Feeling" with Weird Al. Amazing.

I like this story a lot. I like the idea of being found in a T-Bird.

Art = magic. No rational explanation. An idea is a seed...sometimes it grows, sometimes not.

In the good/bad old days, artists made 12%-16% of the retail price of a CD on record royalty plus $.75 - $1.00 per record for the publishing rights (if they wrote all the songs). So about $2.00 per record. Which then gets commissioned by your manager and split up and otherwise diminished before it gets to you.

The labels were getting $5-$8 per CD. Sony made a lot of money off of us.
