Bermuda is the undeniable king of al memorobilia/tapes. I'm sure this is a little too personal to him, but he should put a page on al's site that lists things he has, and maybe put in pictures and stuff.

I remember Al saying Bermuda had the Spatula City sign in his garage.

Love this recent interview (mentioned elsewhere on the forum, but thought I should post it here). It's so long that it almost feels like sitting with him in his living room or something... like, no rushed moments... very cozy and personal that way. Really dig his book title idea. Bermuda is such a fountain of knowledge and certainly puts everything in perspective music-industry-wise.

Thanks. It's from the Bad Hair Tour. I might crop it a bit.

Is Bermuda Jewish? I added him to Category:Jewish American musicians on Wikipedia because I recall Weird Al claiming he was in an interview or Ask Al.
not to mention the toilets at Madonna Inn
