Born and raised in NYC...Brooklyn. "Whuh? Yis got a PROBLEM wid dat?!" Built my first radio station in high school by staging hundreds of bake sales to raise money to buy equipment.
Went to NYU - got my first job WHILE I was at NYU Film School - "Cousin Ken" on "XL Country" in New Jersey at the ripe old age of 19.
Been on the air ever since. Acting and writing career continued: Small parts in various movies and TV shows - but got a few featured parts, like last year's season opener on "Law And Order, C.I."
I've also written and starred in a couple of those low-budget T&A movies, like "The Naked Detective." - don't worry gang - I keep my clothes ON! I'm the comic relief!
Was on the Golf Channel's "Total Golf Makeover" a couple of season's ago in Orlando...I'm now a 12 handicap, thanks to Moe Norman's Natural Golf method!
Married, with a family - that would be my dog, Brak, a Border Collie/Bernese Mountain Dog mix, and our cat, Baldrick, who rules the world (the world just doesn't realize it yet).
Favorite Concert? Seeing "The Wall," Roger Water's epic, live in Berlin, after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Simply one of the greatest events I have ever been part of in my life...
Turns 71 today, and still performing AT THE TOP OF HIS GAME! He plays 3 hours, doesn't take a sip of water or an intermission, and sings every song LIVE - NO LIP-SYNCHING!
Plus...the m,an loves singing on rooftops ;-)
MAN, those Van Halen boys are mean!
Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell recalls a prank war with Van Halen during a 1991 tour.
"The Van Halen guys got us like four times in one set. When we came out on stage, they had taken a bunch of three-foot strips of duct tape and put them all over the stage face-up. Within a couple of seconds we were all dragging around huge wads of duct tape.”
"They sent out some strippers – not very attractive ones – who stayed out there for a whole song. Then they sent out one of their techs in a Little Bo Peep outfit with some live sheep.”
"At the very end, we were playing ‘Man in the Box’ and their crew came out and started dismantling our entire set around us. They left Sean Kinney with a kick and snare, left me with one cab, they just unplugged Mike Starr.”
"And that was all in one set – I don't think anyone has ever topped that commitment to f**king with the opening act."
GREAT question!With Paul McCartney's birthday this week...
