Was doing some random YouTube surfing earlier. Throwback... uh, Wednesday. Performing "Polka Your Eyes Out" on the Jerry Lewis Telethon.

Awesome! Steve is the best. Just owns that bass. The accordion solo in that polka rules too. :accordion:

Wasn't sure where to post this. It's a rather... interesting court case that briefly mentions Al. :lol:

Here is today's interview from New Zealand. It tells you that when he was scheduled to play there in 2011, he asked for a typically weird list of black underwear-wearing dancers, chocolate-covered vegan junk food and tequila.
"First of all, I don't particularly MIND the rabid wolverine in my underwear...."

"I was not shocked by the power of the Internet," he said. "I was counting on it."

Not a video, but an interesting find! I wonder who the alcohol was for, since he supposedly only drinks 1 alcoholic beverage a month...

New article that includes his tour rider from 2011. The interesting part is the Alcohol (only on Fridays). Wonder who it was for, if he only allows himself one alcoholic beverage a month.

Maybe the bandmates come over and drink, and he just keeps them company...

I think he asks for alcohol for the crew. I think the others in the band occasionally partake, too. Jim has posted pics of cool drinks he has at various restaurants at times.
