I’ll admit it: I liked to watch The Jerry Springer Show. Yes, there was the constant parade of the weirdness America had to offer, but Jerry was also open to giving airtime to extreme musicians. I respected that.
Jerry died this week at the age of 79. In his memory, The Brooklyn Vegan collected eight punk rock-related segments. Here are two of my favourites.
The one with El Duce of The Mentors
Not only were The Mentors most vile, violent, and sexist bands of all time, leader El Duce once claimed that the was contracted to kill Kurt Cobain. And then he was beheaded by a train.
The One with GWAR
GWAR and Jerry were made for each other, really.
