      October 14, 1978 . . .

      I was watching Saturday Night Live, as I always did on Saturday nights during those days. They announced the musical guest as "Devo" and the band went right into their cover of "Satisfaction." I remember sitting bolt upright, staring at the screen and just watching in amazement. I had been to three continents and two county fairs and I'd never seen or heard anything like that before.

      Two days later I went out and bought my copy of Q. Are We Not Men? A: We Are DEVO! I am still in amazement of their musicality. I'm also amused by how often Mark Mothersbaugh's name shows up in movie and TV music credits. When I saw that he did the music for The Lego Movie, I wasn't in the least surprised.

      Oh, and RIP Devo guitarist Bob Casale, who died the other day.

      So this West Virginian walks into a bar and says, "Fix me a Green River."
