on the Tom Waits thread, @salwarpe came out with this corker;
Back in the seventies, he was briefly considered as the lead singer for a revitalised Herman’s Hermits. Tom Waits for Noone?
This made me think of another gag I like;
I saw Gilbert O’Sullivan in the bank at lunchtime & when I asked what what he was there for he replied with ‘A loan again, naturally”
Any others ?
