Came up in ‘88 and posted a 1.81 ERA over 50 innings in relief, 3.32 in '89 over 62 innings. He was already in his late 20s then and is one of a million baseball stories of an arm that’s beaten in development, chewed up briefly in the majors, and then it’s off to real life and shit.
I do 110, 120 shows a year. I do the band show, the Leon show, the Billy Joel show, the Elton solo show, the Elton/Ray Cooper show, the Elton/orchestra show. I played over 80 different songs last year. I never get bored. I’m a fidget. Like Jack White. I love people like that. He’s always doing something. And Brandon Flowers and Elvis Costello and Dave Grohl. We should start a band. We’ll call ourselves the Fidgets. I’ll play keyboards.
