Dick Clark at his finest.

Tom Snyder at his prickliest.

It’s not just that he’s an unimaginable dick, because he was certainly not the first or the last. It’s that he somehow managed to weasel his way into the system in spite of that, working every possible angle for his ‘communications company’. Can you possibly imagine 10 minutes of music like that on television today? A shambling Tommy Bahama reject nowhere near the microphone.  Or how about ten minutes of music in general? What really does it are the next two clips, almost 12 minutes of unimaginable awkwardness. I’ve seen uncomfortable interviews before, Orly Taitz comes to mind, but these questionings are always weird and stilted because the people being interviewed have nothing of substance to say.  Forget about ‘Rotten,’ Mr Lydon sets a different standard. I love his notions of an even ground between fan and audience.
