Remember that scene in This Is Spinal Tap when the band runs into another, more successful musician in a hotel lobby? Duke Fame was the rocker’s name, and he was played by real-life metal vocalist Paul Shortino. The role of Fame’s aloof manager was handled by the great Howard Hesseman of “WKRP in Cincinnati” fame.
Anyway, I was taking a shower, and I had this random idea to record what I think Mr. Fame’s album might’ve sounded like and post it on the internets. I could probably have the whole thing done in, like. two days. Yeah, I know it’s a sad thing to brag about.
Unfortunately, there’s already a band called Duke Fame. And they’re neither hard rock, nor very good.
We’ve had an action packed weekend — I’ll fill you in a little later…
