Hey! You know what to do. And if you don't, just do what you see these guys doing. Yes, you, you too, and you... do it or suffer a sad life of voiceless mediocrity!
Mojo Nixon. He used to open for us. You never knew what Mojo was going to do. Mushroom Maniac, Jesus at McDonald's, Debbie Gibson Is Pregnant with My Two-Headed Love Child, Don Henley Must Die... the guy was and is very funny. One thing ws for sure, the crowd was always good and ready to rock if he opened.
Once, as I was leaving a music store with some sort of nonsense to put in my bass rig or something, I say hey Mojj and grabs my shoulder WAY harder than you might imagine and shouts, "HEY FORNICATOR!!! That's not a DRUM MACHINE is it?!?!?!?!? Better not be HEATHEN!!!!"
As we were forming Joey Harris and The Speedsters (1983), a New Wavish guitar pop group signed to MCA, he walks up and says, "Ol' Mojo plays guitar now don't forget." We laughed later. But we were wrong. He went on to play the drummer in the Great Balls of Fire movie. He was an MTV personality, a radio host, and a ever present fixture on the San Diego Scene. And funny as all #$%^. It ain't deep but it is Mojo.
