I think Bourdain would be a very entertaining interview. His show is pretty good, and he has a lot of great stories about a lot of legendary people. The "Booey is stupid" jokes are so very, very true. His attempt to explain why he wouldn't book one of the most popular and influential metal bands of all time was mind-boggling. I'm not a metal fan, but I know Maiden is a giant band and planted solidly in Howard's fan base demo. Plus, imagine the comedy gold to be mined from Richard on that day. Much better to book a friend of Beth's and give her 40 minutes to talk about smelly "va-jay-jay" and "in-a-hurry-curry". Oh snap!Actually, I'm not knocking Anthony Bourdain. I think he would be a good interview. I just included him because I thought it would be funny since Baba Booey seems solid on not booking him. Sorry if I offended anyone.
Just because they are a great band doesn't mean they would be a great interview. Plus they don't sound like they give a fuck about promoting on satrad, at least not according to Jose...TWUS was mind boggling yesterday. How could Booey defen Whitney as being the a bigger/better guest than on of the biggest bands of all time?
Hell, I don't even like them, but at least i know them
There have been many "relationship councellors" hawking a book on the show that turned out worse than this broad.Just because they are a great band doesn't mean they would be a great interview. Plus they don't sound like they give a fuck about promoting on satrad, at least not according to Jose...
I really didn't think that Whitney chick was so bad. It was good fodder for jokes. Howard pretty much called out her credentials for writing a relationship guide. She was unwillingly forthcoming about sex. The only thing missing was Artie cracking on her.
You're comparing Quiet Riot and Warrant to Iron Maiden? One is a seminal, immensely influential band in a major musical movement, and the other two are one-hit wonders from the early 80's. One sells out arenas, the other two struggle to fill the local club on 80's night (is Warrant still touring?). One has their own 737 (which Dickinson flies himself), the other two rent vans. One has sold 70 million albums (the only other metal acts to sell more are Metallica and Sabbath), the other two haven't sold 20 million combined (and I'm being generous).There have been many "relationship councellors" hawking a book on the show that turned out worse than this broad.
But then again none of them was linked to Beth. ).
As far as interviewing the guy from Iron Maiden? Riiiight . . . great stuff. Gary should take a whole week and book him, the drummer from Quiet Riot, the bassist from Warrant, and a roadie from Stryper. Just let me know so I can go on vacation that week. :shifty:
Yeah, comparing Bruce and crew to those other bands really does Iron Maiden a disservice. I can understand why Booey may not want them in, but one thing Booey seems to forget is that every once in a while, a guest they thought might suck turns out to be a gem.One is a seminal, immensely influential band in a major musical movement
Yeah, you never know who is going to suck and who will be classic. of the choices above, Bourdain would be my choice (watching his show on tivo as I type this), but none of them sound like all that great of an interview.None of the above, or all of the above.
I love it when there are no guests. More time to talk to ETM, JD's zit, or... er ah Kennedy impressions.
But at the same time Howard can make just about anybody a good interview.
