  1. I saw the Good Doctor at Max's in Baltimore, when Gulf War 1 was in full swing. He was only 45 minutes late. Got onstage with Chivas, a Bible and an electronic hammer that made the sound of breaking glass when he hit things. He read from the Book of Revelations and told us we were all doomed, had lurid and harsh words for the Bush Crime Family, spoke glowingly about his recent Red Shark purchase (it's in the movie, BTW) yelled at me when I asked him a question. It was a good night.
    Didn't sign books, so my copy of Songs of the Doomed remains un-autographed.
