    How famous is this guy, not in his head but his actual Hollywood status, we all know he thinks he is 'A' list, but in reality is he a A, B, C etc?

    Howard is an old celeb now that other celebs just think they have to respect due to the time he's put in. If you really look at it though, not too many young relevant celebs give a shit about him. He can't get Taylor Swift, Eminem, Jennifer Lawrence, etc etc in the studio.

    Exactly, they all have 20 times as many twitter followers as Gunkard has listeners.

    They don't need him.

    He's an afterthought, not even on the list. He's a part time radio show host and a "judge" on a summer replacement show, the gig Howard used to mock as where you go when your star has fallen. Hollywood is all about movie, performance and TV stars, real celebs look at Howard as nothing more than a possible vehicle to promote their own work.

    I'm 33 and I'm prolly around the last generation that he was famous to. My 26 y.o. gf didn't know about him when we got together 5 years ago. I equate him to Martha Ray, whose name I only know from the Stern Show and have no idea what she was ever famous for.

    I'm going to give you the inside dope because I like you.

    Howard once got bumped off a flight by Elizabeth Hurley. Elizabeth Hurley has never been an A list celebrity. I'll leave the math to you.

    I'd like to hear monsoon's take on this burning issue topic.

    Speaking of bumping remember when he was bumped to Lettermans Friday show not many watch. J.Lawrence was a bigger draw and they moved the wig aside. The wig at first didn't understand what was going on.

    I think he's a man without a country - not much a fan base at all. He spent the first 20+ years of his career alienating mainstream society with his "wild man of the radio" routine and he's spent the last near-decade pissing off his loyal fans by becoming a politically correct star-fucker.

    Listen to the buildup to his wedding. He thought they were Brad and Angelina. He was talking about a contingency plan because the news got out about where and when it was. Laughable. If a wig marries a horse in the woods and nobody cares...
