"cut from same cloth"
Direct quote from fafa flunky
...not even close.
Both ignored their children with the first wife
...one was artistically creative the other was a copycat.
Personally yes, both emotionally distant to first families
Both took up with no talent whores
Professionally John was a noine ,Howard a 2 .
Monkey is working over time in the ass kissing dept
Both hoarded their marboes.
At least John had heroin to blame for that.
A more apt comparison is Howard and Jimmy Page. Thieves of obscure yet incredibly original material, tweaking it, regurgitating it to the masses, and passing it off as their own.
Both claimed to be common men but lived in apartments bigger than an average house.
Both have odd mommy issues
"Odd Mommy" issues or odd "Mommy Issues"?
I believe Gary meant it in the context of genius and creativity
One was out of his mind on heroin and wanted to give peace a chance.
the other would get "high" on wine and would not give pizza a chance.
The later but correct on both accounts
Hogwash. Borderline blasphemy even. Page is awesome. All those blues guys stole from each other. And nobody is looking for Spirit albums. And Howard is an old wigged queen. At least Page went gray with dignity.
You have to give Howard credit, even though he stole a lot of his material, he was BRILLIANT at passing it off as his own. Plus, both Howard and Buchwald were incredible at marketing their product. While Steve Dahl was busy drinking and drugging, Howard and Buchwald were on their way to the bank many times over.
He also hit at the perfect time, 10 years too early or late and his act wouldn't have worked. That's what drives me crazy when he rants about Podcasters "...go out and win a market!!". Hey asshole, it's not like that anymore and it really never was aside from the 10 years that he was in his peak due to technology and society being in the perfect place for Howard to prosper.
Jon wrote timeless music and is arguably one of the best musicians of all time.
Howard gave us The Craptacular
One had a useless life that eventually was the inspiration for the classic Meatmen song "1 down 3 to go"
The other ate 3 almonds and Ralph sauce on side.
There it is!
Whenever I think of Led Zeppelin I can never get past this image
