Does Steve Martin pick his nose?

I'm not sure...but I know he's a heckuva banjo picker! Some folks were probably a little bummed when they heard Steve Martin is coming to Overture Hall, not with his stand-up comedy routine...but with a blue grass band called the Steep Canyon Rangers. This lineup recently played in Milwaukee, and I read a review which said he peppered the performance with plenty of one-liners and glib comments, so I'm sure they'll be a giggle or two or seven at this show as well. When I was in high school, Steve Martin as the Wild and Crazy Guy was hotter than hot..and his song King Tut (Funky Tut) was being played constantly on the radio. A group of girls that I sat with at lunch were making plans to go see him at the Coliseum, and I told them to get me a ticket because I'd love to go too. They said "sure!" and never followed up. Summer vacation came and went as did the concert and they never called me and I was really disappointed. I'd say I'm bitter...but how can I be when I'm not even sure what group of girls it was! Maybe I should let it go. Meanwhile..check out Mr. Martin's fast movin' fingers..and make plans to go see him July 27th at Overture Hall.

Saw them at Merlefest. It is a wonderful show--top notch music and very funny between songs. They sing a song called "atheists don't got no songs" and it is hilariious. Also his band is killer.

If you were listening to Triple M on the morning of Thursday July 17th, you may have thought somehow we slipped back to 1965. But it wasn't an old song we were playing--it was a brand new one from the Los Angeles band the Bayonets, called "Crash...

World's Worst iPod: Alice Cooper "You and Me"
Can a song be so horrible that it's actually awesome? Well, if that is possible, here is an example: Alice Cooper's emotional ballad "You and Me" from 1977. I'm not sure we could think up a more hideous lyric than "we shared a bed, some...
