    I'm surprised he didn't compare them to Cream.

    I know he's completely out of touch because he thinks his hair is stylish and current.

    He thinks his wife married him because he's a great guy

    His staff still respects him

    He's fooling us with that rat's nest on his head

    He makes fun of Sal's teeth when his are even funnier

    Howard thinks Ted Kennedy impressions are still relevant

    Howard thinks Kelly Ripa works one hour per day

    Howard thinks his audience will follow him to SIM cards, a podcast or some other scam

    C'mon, it's a perfect comparison. Aside from the fact that they sound absolutely nothing like Oasis and have nothing musically in common. Oh, and that one is an American pop band and the other is an English rock band. So, in a sense, they are very similar. Wouldn't you agree?

    My favorite out-of-touch Howard segment in recent years was when he had his computer tech introduce him to iTunes -- in the year 2013. For weeks he'd come in on Monday boasting about his latest playlists, which featured stupid names like "Metal Mania," and which had number one hits from artists like Psy, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. And he'd ask guests if they were "into iTunes" like it was a new discovery.

    These kids today-they probably don't even know Jack Bruce played chords on the bass.

    Wasn't Howard amazed with the variety of candy he saw at a drug store? Probably the only time he was in one in the last 20 years.

    this could be due to his age
    I sometimes forget that 1995 wasn't just a couple years ago
    getting older blows

    Well he certainly doesn't "write" songs so how else would you put it?

    Chords on the bass and asking the guitar player if they are playing in open E tuning. The only open E song I can think of is Gimme Shelter.

    He reminds me of Mr Burns in appearance and vocabulary. "You there, fill it up with petroleum distillate, and re-vulcanize my tires, post-haste!"

    Hey, I really get a "Donavan" vibe from you guys...right Robin? I'll bet you guys get a lot of women, in the biblical sense, so you all must be well endowed down there, Robin, I think we need to do a Physical inspection for purely scientific reasons. Robin?

    There is nothing original about that band btw....
