Paul? Anton? Anybody?

Exactly!

Those of you who were outside the US or not yet born in 1989 will totally miss this reference, which may or may not be the root of all this "to THE or not to THE" nonsense.

David Letterman used to have a show on NBC from 1982-1993. It was on later than his current show, and it seemed quite a bit funnier, although I may have just been more immature. In any case, the week Edie Brickell was on the show with her band, Dave would fixate on whether or not it was Edie Brickell and New Bohemians (which sounded odd) or Edie Brickell and THE New Bohemians. It sure amused me at the time, but I guess ya had to be there. When Edie Brickell and New Bohemians finally played the program, Dave, flustered by his attraction to Edie (the future Mrs. Paul Simon), apologized for referring to the band incorrectly, furthering the joke.

And Dave and Paul Shaffer (his band leader) continued their mock confusion over the lack of "the" in front of New Bohemians, possibly making fun of the pretentiousness of it all. And the gag continued when a certain Long Island trio appeared on the program to perform Gene and Eddie. Those of you who have this on video will notice Dave trying to clarify that there's no "the" in front of Stray Cats.


Am I remembering this correctly, or is there more to the story?

..... and, if I remember correctly, on later shows, Dave would continue on with the joke by asking Paul if it was "Paul Shaffer and THE World's Most Dangerous Band" or "Paul Shaffer And World's Most Dangerous Band"! Laughing

I hope you will not be drinking the beers before you go stomping. Remember, Chad Keoning always says: "Don't Drink and Stomp!"

Richard,
That's what happened AND.....my pal with the Grammys and the Gretsches replied....."NO 'THE' ".

rendeer


Ain't this fun?,
T

There must be lotsa confusion goin' on, because a certain Mr Leon Drucker (I think he's a bass player... Cool ) keeps using the "The" before Stray Cats. Oh well... (to "the" or not to "the" king )

Anyway, in EXACTLY three months I'm gonna see a cool rockin' band at Berns in Stockholm. Can't wait!!!! Very Happy

I was going to say the exact same thing Rickabilly. I clearly remember Dave saying to Brian "It's just Stray Cats?" And Brian replying "Just Stray Cats...no the" and Dave repeating the same thing to the audience.
