Always fascinated by the characters who become the real thing as time goes by. You know, how crazy was Screamin' Jay before he paraded in zebra skin tuxedos and set his head on fire? How weird was Gorgeous George before he took to the peroxide?
Now, though, I worry that I've become the real Prince of Heartache, the true Heartbreak Kid. Maybe I should have written novelty songs or the ones where the guy gets the girl.
