Gibby Haynes interviewed on Fox News sometime in 2009 before their last tour and before the ATP show in England. The interviewer introduced him by saying "he is as talented as I am turgid." This was taped during that sweater vest phase that I'm hoping he's done with.

Politically Incorrect, 1997

The subject is rock lyrics on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, featuring guests Gibby Haynes, Weird Al Yankovic, Meshell Ndegeocello and Stephen Bishop, or as the guy who posted these videos described them: "Meshell Ndegeocello and four white dudes."

Congratulations Little Mr. Haynes

That there is a little Gibby about to grow up and become a big Gibby is a little scary. I have no idea who the wife is other than that her name is Melissa and I will conjecture that she has a great sense of humor and is patient and kind.

I hope he didn't lose the baby already, that would be quick.

Congratulations are in order, may the adventure begin. If you are so inclined to get them a gift, they appear to be registered at Green Cradle.

The tyke's name according to this anonymous commenter who is in the know is Satchel Moses, aka Satchmo. You have but 15 1/2 years until you take the SAT little man. Good luck.

Here is an excerpt, where Gibby answers the question "Are you able to undress a clown in your mind?"

No, because clowns or clown is pure. Clown comes undressed! Clown is terror. Clown is complete and cannot be altered. Clown is indivisible. Clown divided by 2 is clown times 2. Clown is noise and silence. Clown is sky and horizon. Clown is clear and colored. Clown am become death. Destroyer of worlds! Clown is all and nothing. Clown isn't. Clown is only
