    Abe Vigoda dies, Howie opens the show with it (as he should).

    David Bowie dies, nothing. Goes an hour laughing at various bullshit. Needs Bobo to call in and ask about it, berates Bobo like a mental case.

    Same shit with Glenn Frey.

    Musicians achieved the status that Howard could only dream about. He's a very bitter, jealous man with no actual talent.

    He's just jealous.
    No matter how hard some folks try, they just haven't got it music-wise.

    howard only went into radio because he would never have cut it as a rock star. so we are left with a guy who wears a costume each day to look rock and roll, or at least in his mind what rock and roll looks like. the need to be mick jagger skinny and the long jet black hair well into his 60's.

    music is the life howard hates, because he was never part of the club

    In all fairness, no one should have cared about Glenn Frey dying.

    Howard has a mental problem with a whole host of things.

    I think the answer that is the most correct is that Howard simply is not a music fan. He doesn't listen to music. He didn't grow up liking music all that muc. And Gary was correct in calling Howard a "poser" because Howard will often "fake" a discussion about liking some band just because it seems like the thing to do.

    Howard hates anyone who enjoys what they do and are successful at it. If it's musicians so be it.except for the guy from TRAIN.

    Howard was unaware that Bowie had died, that's why it took so long. When he realized it an hour into his show, he decided to cover his ass by letting Bobo on the air to "break the news". Howard's response was essentially, "No duh!" So we're supposed to conclude that Howard was just being cool and playing a joke by waiting an hour and 45 minutes into his show before acknowledging the first thing everyone expected him to acknowledge.

    The only real interest Wiggy has in musicians is the size of their cocks and if they look at the other band members cocks.

    He's talked about Bowie almost every day since Bowie died. I guess that's something. I'm sure he resents that Bowie wouldn't come on for an interview.

    Howard is jealous of musicians. He knows even after an artist dies, their music will continued to be played. When he dies, well that's it. No one is going to want to listen or replay to his old shows or interviews. And that is what eats at him.

    Thanks groov, for doing the Googlin' I hate to do!!!

    I recall this was a yooge "get", and I would expect Howard to eulogize David on air appropriately.

    Interesting Bowie wouldn't do the show, but would perform at his party.

    I miss Bowie!!!
