    I have been rereading Stern's first book Private Parts and I stumbled across an interesting passage that I thought the board might find interesting. This starts on page 395 and continues on to 396. Howard is describing how they first began their celebrity interviews(ambushings). It seems Howard was using BaBa Booey at the time. This incident played a role in the eventual arrival of Stuttering John. If anybody has some further insight please feel free to pile on.

    We were honing our methodology and refining our interview aesthetic. Unfortunately, we lost our interviewer. It happened when we sent Gary out to interview Van Halen at their concert at the Meadowlands. Gary was ushered backstage to a private dressing room where he conducted the interview. It went off without a hitch and then Gary joined about a hundred other people who were partying at a preconcert publicity dinner in a huge adjoining room. Alex Van Halen happened to bump into his manager and he told him that he had just done a "wild" interview.

    The manager asked him what he meant by "wild." Van Halen told him that one question to Sammy Hagar (the singer who replaced David Lee Roth in a controversial move) was: If you were driving by a shopping center on a hot day and you saw a dog and David Lee Roth locked up in seperate cars, who would you save?

    The manager was beside himself. He rushed over to Gary and started going through his bag to get the list of questions. When he started reading the actual questions, he went ballistic. "OH, MY GOD!" he screamed. "YOU ARE A PIECE OF SHIT. YOU PIECE OF SHIT. GET OUT OF MY DRESSING ROOM YOU PIECE OF SHIT!" Gary was being screamed at in front of a hundred people.

    Gary felt like such a dick that he decided to hide behind his mantle as "producer" of the show and he delegated the task of doing these interviews.......
