    I just got the new CD and have been in tears laughing. The guy is a genius... I cant even imagine how he gets the ideas he does. A comedic Genius, for sure.

    Since I was a kid I got every one of his albums/tapes/CDs... why? I dont know- its a link back to childhood I suppose. Peter Pan Syndrome I guess- but either way, if you like modern music of all sorts and have a healthy sense of humor like yous truly, do yourself a favor and listen to the new disk.

    I actually seen him in concert many moons ago, opening up for another band.. The musicians in his band were incredible. This was during the "guitar/drum/etc hero" days and all of his guys could have mostly likely outplayed anyone out at the time...

    he has a great video that is a few years old "it's all about the pentiums"

    don't know what song he was parodying, but it's pretty good.....he says:

    "i'm down with bill gates
    i call him money for short
    i phone him up at home
    and i make him do my tech support"

    You can download a lot of his stuff online. I like "The Devil Went Down To Jamacia".
