    Denis Leary interview was one of the best celeb interviews in a long while. He is a big fan of The Show and had great stories to tell. He is especially funny if you went to college in Boston and could relate to his stories.

    For many years, Denis Leary had been friends with fellow comedian Bill Hicks. However, when Hicks heard Leary's 1992 album No Cure For Cancer, he felt Leary had stolen his act and material. The friendship ended abruptly as a result.[6] At least three stand-up comedians have gone on the record stating they believe Leary stole not just some of Hicks' material but his persona and attitude.[6][7][8][9] As a result of this, it is claimed that after Hicks' death from pancreatic cancer, an industry joke began to circulate about Leary's transformation and subsequent success (roughly; "Question: Why is Denis Leary a star while Bill Hicks is unknown? Answer: Because there's no cure for cancer").[9]

    In a 2008 appearance on The Opie and Anthony Show, comedian Louis CK claimed that Leary stole his "I'm an asshole" routine, which was then expanded upon and turned into a hit song by Leary.[1] On a later episode of the same show, Leary challenged this assertion by claiming that he (Leary) co-wrote the song with Chris Phillips.[2]

    It wasn't bad.

    But Stern has more strike outs in terms of interview than home runs, IMHO.

    Wigious Interuptous could not care what the joke thief and fellow poser had to say, he had his list of questions written by publicist and needed to bulldoze right through them. Absolute cure for insomnia as the two phonies talked like 12 year old girls about the Rolling Stones. Name an interesting fact that was discovered during this PR time filler.
