You know what? If you can roll then just roll, and I think this guy actually did.

The last person I would ever have expected rolled.

Ok I'm cool with it. Now get the Wu-Tang Clan for a compilation.

My understanding is that he gets pennies when 'that song' is played, but the publicity of it becoming an Internet phenomenon for so long probably did help him a hell of a lot regardless.

A smaller man might have resented being mocked. His gratitude speaks well of his character.

I do have a lot of respect for anyone who can relax, accept that humanity is absurd, and laugh along rather than rage.

Great article, ty Subby. For the record, the man does have an incredible ( imho ) voice, and am glad he is back to using it.

IIRC, In Living Color did a parody of "that song" with the lyric: "Big black voice inside Howdy Doody".

Can't find it.

The people who wrote that song have to be very happy with the checks that keep rolling in.
