Yeah but did he have a good time all the time?

It's like he's asking 'How much more burned could I be?'.  And the answer is 'None.  None more burned.'.

As long as there's, you know, sex and drugs, I can do without the rock and roll.

I believe everything I read and hear. I think that makes me a more well rounded person.

There's no sex and drugs for Ian, David.

He just was like a flash of green light, and that was it. Nothing was left. Well, there was a little green globule on his drum seat. It was a small stain, actually.

You know, several, you know, dozens of people spontaneously combust each year. It's just not really widely reported.

There is no such thing as fire

Did he say "Pardon me" before he burst into flames?

At 70, he was far too old to have been a fire crotch, so we can rule that out.

Solid State Vittles: Bizarre gardening accident?


Jeff Porcaro, the drummer for Toto and a session player for just about everybody else, died in a bizarre gardening accident.  Early heart disease combined with inadvertently inhaling pesticide.
