“i don’t feel good”

Upon hearing the sad news that the great, powerful and impressive James Brown machine had finally come to a stop, Linette asked me what I thought was a really good question — “Who’s the hardest working man in show business now?”

    Bruce Springstein is known for giving marathon performances, but I don’t think it’s the same thing.

    In ALL of show business …

    Wayne Newton …

    … don’t like it, but “that’s the way it is.”

    I’d prefer to say David Letterman, but he’s cut back since his surgery.

    I could say Richard Colbert, “The Colbert Report,” but he’s having too much fun.

    Certianly busy, and certainly the most populat and successful American in show business these days, in my opinion, is Keifer Sutherland, who plays Jack Bauer on 24. He’s also great at tackling Christmas trees!

    Fuck. I was going to say Gerald Ford.

    Back to the drawing board.

    Bob Dylan? he plays a couple of hundred shows a year, and he’s a senior citizen now….been doing this “endless tour” for a couple of decades already.

    But on stage there ain’t no other James Brown, never will be another.

    I could live with Iggy getting the title. If Uncle Floyd gets it, I’m going to war though. I’d rather see it given to the ghost of Wally George than that clown.

    (I, of course, am joking. I thought for a moment that it would be fun to start an internet war with Uncle Floyd, but then the feeling passed… And I’ve got my hands full with Rip Taylor anyway. )
