This is a really terrific scandal.
By coincidence I was looking up Screaming Trees the other day and it turns out that Gary Lee Conner was - and may still be - a paperboy in San Angelo. A 47-year-old paperboy.
Back when Soul Asylum were at their most incredible I read an interview with Dave Pirner who was mowing lawns for a living. Kind of a shit job in Minneapolis in the winter I'd think.
