Theatrical Notes From All Over

So a certain Shady Dame and I are going to see a one man show on the life and work of the late great Lester Bangs tomorrow.

Could be a hot one. I mean, I loved the late great Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who played Lester in Cameron Crowe's wonderful Almost Famous, but he totally didn't resemble the Lester that I knew professionally. The guy in the clip above, however, does.

That said, I think Matt Groening more or less nailed him in 1986.

I mean, that illustration is so on the money it's hilarious.

UPDATE: And in case you think Groening didnt get it right...

Jeez, I can't believe I walked around in public looking like that.

Groening's take was hilarious. Loved the Thin Lizzy Bad Rep t-shirt.
