    Howard wants us to believe he's a rock n roll kind of guy. Though he had James Taylor on his show for two hours.

    He likes Train.
    Paul McCartney didn't give him an autograph.
    He performed with Rob Zombie.

    Here's some evidence of Howie the rocker. Please discuss enjoy lament. Is Howard pretending that he doesn't secretly like Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald and Christoper Cross just to be cool?

    HOWARD'S EARLY DAYS IN RADIO

    WESTCHESTER

    Howard was not a rocker.


    [​IMG]



    As program director at WRNW, he steered the station toward softer rock. The hard sounds of the Who and the Rolling Stones were all but eliminated by Howard, who pushed Seals and Croft, Carole King and other singer-songwriters. Howard himself has said that he did not care about the music.

    DETROIT


    Howard was a fake rocker.

    Speaking to WXYZ-TV six months into his stay, he sounded exuberant about the rock scene. "On any given weekend you don't have one or two major acts, sometimes you have three major acts in an area, plus you have the local clubs that are supporting bands that are terrific. There's so much music, so much excitement, I can't handle it. After milk and cookies, I should be in bed at night, but I'm out, you know, cruising the clubs and finding out what's going on."

    But Howard tended to limit his cruising to those events he was obligated to attend on behalf of WWWW. "He looked like he fit in with the rock-and-roll crowd, but he didn't."

    When Howard left for DC-101, he had a party in the suburbs. "It was a sedate gathering mainly of the conservatively dressed people who were Howard's real friends in the area. Those rock-and-roll station mates who customarily arrived for a bash no earlier than 10:30 or 11 P.M. walked into a party that was breaking up. Entertainment was provided by a magician -- geez, how square, the rockers snickered."

    DC
    "Howard had the cover photo of his comedy album retouched so that the leather-suited 'Howeird,' his whip brandished over the head of a cowering old woman, did not look so thick in the butt and thighs."

    NEW YORK
    Howard was not yet a rocker, but was about to become one.


    [​IMG]

    He meets and befriends Dee Snyder. Dee asks why he looks so Dorky in his afro hair and corduroy shoes. Howard gets a makeover from Dee and his wife, taking home some of Dee's own clothes.

    [​IMG]

    Howard even grows out his hair in a style similar to Dee's.

    [​IMG]

    Dee later remarks that people accuse him of ripping off Howard's look.

    Gary called him a poser years ago. "You like what you think will make you look cool" is what I think he said.

    I'm not even sure people around Boston give a shit about him . I'm 49 and when I was growing up Billy Troll was something your mother listened to . Not cool at all . Same with James Taylor , Christopher Cross and all that other soft rock horse shit .
