Nice! "I Was Dancing in the Lesbian Bar" is one of my all time fav songs. Check YouTube for his Conan O'Brien performance.
yes!! thank you, J.R! so correct. pop music does not have to be considered fluffy or 'guilty pleasures.' it's good and it means a lot to many people. im so glad that he said this.
that clipping is wonderful!
i just found out that it's from creem magazine, 1973.
Great clipping! I love Jonathan Richman. A few years ago I saw him play in Birmingham in this sort of odd venue (a metal building). Before the show, my fiance and his friends went out behind the building (probably to sneak cigs), and ended up hanging out there for about half an hour. I went to find them and there they were, just listening to Jonathan casually play guitar while sitting on a random car. They were just hanging out, drinking beer with Tommy the drummer, listening to a private little concert.
