    Howard always claimed that he was doing Stuttering John-style interviews himself before there was a Stuttering John. (He mentions it when he writes about John in Miss America.) But I've heard no evidence, and assume he's just jealously making sure he gets credit for inventing John.

    Howard actually did do those interviews, he would bring a bullhorn and yell questions at celebs.

    Back when he cared, and was funny..

    Anyone who is still awake when the moon is up has nothing going on in their lives.

    Are you talking about when he'd do a live remote broadcast from a media tent at an event and use a bullhorn to try and attract celebrities while also ruining the other DJs' interviews? If so, I don't count that. He was surrounded by his crew and protected at all times when he had that bullhorn out. John's interviews were far more intimate, awkward and dangerous.

    No, he actually did stand outside at the Oscars with the riff-raff and yell at celebs through a megaphone

    They would also stay at some shitty hotel like the Raddison and Stern would try and make it sound glamerous. He would talk about being "poolside", it was a fucking riot.

    But standing outside the Oscars and yelling -- is that really a Stuttering John–style interview? That's just barking out shit, which John only resorted to if his preferred intimate kill approach was aborted. John actually engaged with his victims, which is what defined his style.
