I didn't like it earlier. I don't like it now. I'm going to write a song about that. Because i still don't like it and i've given it a big opportunity it's decades. I don't like math. Here's a song about it. Well but i think it's fascinating to think that it's not that he doesn't like concrete. Math are not that he doesn't like math. It's conceptual math. Might work for him. We just haven't found the right way to teach jimmy.

"Thing in the world cut to I never made that money every until you know Sarah live. You get excited and I was like Oh. This is amazing. So I went home that night I was. So happy my friends from my school came to see me and the comedy club and I still have it on videotape and I was just so nervous and. And I remember just like I I was on. I just thought it was the best I was going to be easy from then on out and I started just joining a bunch of talent comp contests and talent competitions and I think two more after that. I. Won another one and then it came in second to another one a girl play the piano amazing beat me her name's cheese Oh. I. Know you don't hear about it I don't know what her name was, but not always when the seven hundred dollars, but also won an MC job at the club in Poughkeepsie, and so at the time, it couldn't even drive driver's license. So my dad would drive me to the club every weekend MC. Welcome to the club also work on my act and introduce all these comedians and I, had like looking back Kevin James, I used to work with. Lewis Black was great and I got to meet all these COMEDIANS and see their act and it was cool. It was like a really interesting thing for a sixteen year old kid to do and I was there like every weekend just working at my act and try to add different jokes and you know a lot of it was bad. But it was still working a lot of pressure and getting out there I'm sure. Petition and Yanks Handle. Some of the jokes are so bad. But then I remember went off to college and what is in college I started adding more to the active musical impressions. So I had a guitar and you had to play guitar. So it ed musical impressions of the troll dolls at the end of my act. So I did celebrities at the beginning of my act Trodellos at the end. So that would be another piece of advice for communities have a beginning and have an aunt The middle, you'll figure out the middle. You gotTA. Have a closer It's good to have an. People. Get to know who you are and you gotTa have a closer that crushes right close right. So you've got close finish. Yeah. So so you do all this you obviously have this goal, your entire life getting on snl you finally get it when you do get it. was there a feeling of I've made it like I'm good or how quickly like all right I need to actually stick around and make this work and and and reached my next goal because I always we always talked to people and really successful people when they hit that first goal just makes him hunger for more I think at the time I was good. Yes. Is it man? Yeah. I remember taking a picture of the elevator to my audition of the second audition for Seo because I go. I might never come back in this building right? This is awesome and if I even if I don't get this I, tell my kids. Hey, once auditioned for Saturday night live pretty good right there you know. So I really do I had one of those disposable cameras that you know the the Kodak wants to. Put into CVS and then way from the comeback. And so I remember doing that audition. Then it was the most nerve wracking one yet you go into the room and go. Are you Jimmy Fallon who's Jimmy founding? Yeah Okay. Well, you're up next don't be nervous but just let you know Lauren doesn't really laugh you know talking about Lauren Michael Oh while lien laugh says it don't let that throw you because there's only like five people in the room you're at innate age which you've been maniac no audience just four people and they're they're beaming you to Burbank to California. So the president of the network and watch as well while it's a lot of pressure, right? Okay. So then Hey going to hair make them like makeup. I mean never put makeup Monica. Okay. Great. So I go into hair and makeup. Jimmy Fallon guy goes well good luck to hear me great. But just you know Lauren doesn't really laugh. I. That's Great. Thanks for the advisors so then I. Go in about to go on, they put a microphone on under your shirt and they put a clip on the top. So they can. With Mike Pack so they can hear you and he goes Jimmy only go. Yeah. This is great. Well, good luck to you. Remember I told you but born doesn't really lag here. What's the problem? He's in the wrong business. As problem. So it was I got on stage and I did kind of my troll act I didn't do the trick but changes until like a celebrity walk-a-thon whereas doing different celebrities walking. For charity and I did you know again Seinfeld and Travolta but I added at the end my closer I think was sandler and this is just at the time when Adam Sandler would just left the show these brand he was supposed to go on for one more season but he was getting really famous and so I had an impression of Sandler And I remember was going. To so good to be a you know. WHO Did it. A little bit and Lawrence laughing. Is it. We put his head in his hands. Why made Lorne Michaels laugh and that was that was arrested was like slow motion. Kind of walking out like, wow you just coming off the field. Goals. Like Lauren question because. I have so much admiration for him and I know he's been a big mentor and Supporter of yours. So, first of all, what has he meant in your career and one or two or three things that make him such a special businessmen so disciplined. he he's meant everything to me. I. Mean Honestly I've seen He seen me at my best and my craziest too I mean when you get famous, it's weird. You know one. Play list there's no something. There's no book that you can read. This has become famous. You do this and that and this, and that's like you think you like I remember at one point I said to my agent. So I said don't send me anymore movies whereas be funny. I. Don't want to be funny in a movie I only want to do westerns. They're like. I WanNa read. Any romantic comedies me I. Don't want to be anyone's boyfriend. The thing I only want to be don't even send it to me. I'm just pass I just WANNA DO WESTERNS and they go World living they don't make westerns anymore you. I guess. So I never got they never sent me anything but I was so dumb in my head thinking that would be my I always wanted to get shot a horse on the white I mean it's pretty cool. I agree I think it's cool. But. They weren't making those things at the time so like but I mean I was getting offer like you know meet the parents all the stuff, but it wasn't even reading the scripts. I don't WanNa do this out. Of Western. It's not if you if a horse. I'll. Consider it. And now I look back I'm like I was such punk I mean, what was he doing? But Laura Macau talk me. and. He just had a clear vision news just. I don't know if it was calmer than anyone. I've met and I, think if you have that like calm cool like it's going to be like, I already know what you should be doing another right moves is a discipline. I mean it just seems like he's a machine he's seen it I mean he's he's been a writer. He's been a performer and then he's been producer for all these years and not just Sarah live is produced. Kids in the hall is produced Standup Special Produced Thirty Rock. He's they're all different writers, different people, different producers. He's worked with thousands of people and knows their egos and he did a play on Broadway that tricky to pull a playoff. It's so much work, right? I remember. One time we did. Something fell off the wall painting. I want some Kruger's like. Lauren what are we? GonNa do painting. Off The wall was even get the walgreens and longest just put a sheet over. The sheet will work. Okay and they put fine no one worried about. So what about you breaking character on us and that would he get Makasi notoriously doesn't like that and I've read that you also were mad at your cell phone would happen but you also probably new after a few times like this. Genuinely funny because people love to see other people laugh wasn't even. That, I was laughing because laughing at the out really learned does not like that he frowns on it and and so I was actually I was I was embarrassed that I would do it but it was the first one that I laughed himself was cowbell. It was a sketch that will Ferrell wrote with Adam McKay and it was about blue stor. Colt. Don't feel. That song and it's like actually is cowboys in that song? Yeah. I think someone thought that was funny because they're kind of a heavy metal band to have a Cowbell and instrument and your classic songs like wait. Is there a cowbell and don't fear the reaper? So then we should do a whole sketch.
"jimmy d" Discussed on The Eddie Trunk Podcast
"Is Mind blowing. He did every single classic made an album was basically maidens right hand through all of their classic period Martin Birch passing away at the age of seventy one years old and the most astonishing thing and I did not know Martin Birch. I'd always hoped to one day interview him but he was completely retired check out for music. So I had assumed that he must have been. Quite old especially when you consider he produced like or worked on machine head by deep purple in rock by deep purple and records from like sixty, nine, seventy, seventy, one. So it would make sense to think that the man was in his late eighties, early nineties and that's why he retired like twenty years ago when I found out, he was only seventy one at the time of his death last Sunday I was floored. And I guess what I've been able to figure out as he started producing very early at eighteen nineteen years old and he retired in his early forties. Now I had heard something about maybe he had some issue with his hearing I don't know if that's for sure or not. But that was one of the reasons why he maybe he left the business. So early but I was utterly shocked when I heard. He was that young at the time of his death because I you know just just doing the math I thought he would have been much older and there was no cause of death given and obviously you know have loved to have had the chance to interview in my tried a couple of times over the years but I was just told he was completely removed from the industry but everybody from Whitesnake to. The Iron Maiden camp to the do camp to countless others Tony I only Geezer Butler all in the last week have expressed their condolences about this massive massive loss even though he wasn't active anymore and hadn't been for a very long time, the records he made and created are so iconic in the world of hard rock metal and still sound. So unbelievably great. So rest in peace to one of. The legendary producers and hard rock music, the legendary Martin Birch, some some news we definitely need to touch on this week. So again, there's tons of other rock news. See it all on my website, and if you listen every day on volume, you know we break it all down for you each and every day as it happens on that show. So today we're going to salute a couple of drummers. On this week's podcast coming up a little later on. Jimmy D Grasso. Joins me Jimmy is a guy that does not and has not done many interviews in his career. Like a Lotta guys during this pandemic Jimmy is waiting for the virus to clear. So he can get out there and play with somebody but Jimmy d grasso has played with a ton of people from rat to black star riders to a a brief stint. I believe with Ozzy to why T to suicidal tendencies to megadeath. It's amazing. The amount of people Jimmy has played with in his career and he reached out to me month or so ago and said, you know because of the pandemic and everything he thought it would be fun. Maybe do an interview and he was up for doing something with me so I was only. Too. Happy to talk to him. No Jimmy for a very long time. So this is the first time that I can remember maybe ever that we did a one on one on the record interview and we touch on all of the band's or about every band he was a part of and Jimmy's pretty unfiltered guy. He says how he feels about stuff including how he feels about rat in what they're doing now currently without warranty Martini, he was in rat at one point. So this is. You know I think a really I love talking to those guys who you don't care from all the time the sort of behind the scenes people in this business the people who have really great stories in really long histories and resumes but they're just not the marquee guys that you hear from and I love getting those stories and hearing from those people because they. Are. Often, very candid and they are very revealing and they have great great histories Jimmy. Grasso. That's the longer of the two interviews that is second. This week we lead with Frank Thorir, who is the current drummer and guns and roses, and has been the drummer and guns and roses for I would think I any tells us in the interview I, think about fifteen years now. And in the interview, we talk with Frank about how he felt when Steven Adler jumped up for a couple of songs and we talk about how he got the GIG Gr and a little bit about his history with the band and also talk about a new album. He has coming out with the band called PISAR spelled P. S.. R. And it's really good punky. Street rock and roll it really is they've released two songs from an album that is coming out in December frank had this for a long time and again with things being in lockdown. He just it's now time to put some music out with this band. So we'll talk to frank. About guns and roses, his current band, and also his current side, bend if you will piss her. So great stuff with a current member Jeanne. Are we lead with that and then second a great in depth interview with a guy who's played with a ton of people? Drummer Jimmy D Grasso. Salute the backbeat on this week's podcast with two drummers thought that would be fun I. Think you're going to really enjoy both conversations. I thank you for listening and we'll get into it with frank farrer of guns and roses to lead.
"jimmy d" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"Oh these are these are my friends. Yeah I wish as the what it's got. I've got several regrets but the biggest regret I have in life is that I didn't embrace that as much as I should have. I still wanted the popular kids to like me. I wanted to fit in and I still wanted to ask the pretty girl the homecoming at. I wanted to do all of that instead of just going. This is your circle road. Enjoy this enjoy that that. You don't love. Bruce Springs Princeton. The way everybody else does and that you like Chicago embrace that instead of you know you're trying to fit in worrying about it exactly and making yourself feel less than or yes. It's probably the only regret I have from high school. He said I probably should have embraced. My near what was was nurtured. Them certainly isn't took me. I mean it's at me a long time because our school's so small and there wasn't there wasn't theater kids there was just like back. There were kids that did sports also did theater that we're in the plays but I think they they scheduled the rehearsal so that football players could be in the plays. He's right and so and I you know and I was fairly popular kid but I but you know towards senior year I started to feel real miserable all and not understand why felt so miserable and just didn't fit in. You know I didn't even realize it because they didn't know anything else right. I want you of I was like it was just sort of a larger version of smaller Town it's very sort of Champaign Urbana it's very you no. It's very kind of middle of the road sort of existence. You know huge Greek system fraternities and sororities. I joined a fraternity ready out of just kind of like small towns like. Will I do what you do. I WANNA socialite and kind of within months like what does all Carey well. I made sure that there was no sort of hazing and stuff. But they're still all kinds of judgmental bullshit and it's how long were you in the for it. I was only there two years and I joined my sophomore year so only within one year ago and I never lived in the place and even like the like during Pledge Week. We're supposed to sleep in the chapter room. which is the this sacred conclave which is just some fucking piss smelling room the basement? We're supposed to sleep on mattresses down there and like after the first night of just drunken assholes because part of that week is the the elder ones you know the actives coming in drunk and let's go down and fuck with the pledges. Just turn on the lights and you know like ask at make us Rick Recite fucking Shit that some sort of Baptist assholes came up with in one thousand nine hundred zero sick all the rigmarole Mumbo. Oh jumbo about this this thing and after the first night of that I was like fuck this. I'm going to sleep in my apartment. And they were like you got to sleep down there. I'm like now I got classes I'm here for school and then it'd be like one day would be like where your clothes inside out and I was like Now and it wasn't just me. It's not like I'm some Super Bowl Li so you like half of us. We're like no fucking way. I'm wearing my clothes out to class. No and there'd be like you have to now not gonNA and so it's very toothless anyway. Yeah we're a lot and it was also mirrored my high school life. Although I was not in in that there was a huge divide between stoner's nonce donor yes and in high school. That was definitely there. Were the burnouts and the job question. And I didn't smoke weed until I was out of high school. And just out of like kind of fear and weirdness and that's what and I had a lot of friends that were quote unquote burnout. Because they would just you know kids and some war on this fucking sports teams and Shit in there blake sort of tweets right and but it was definitely like all the guys that got high awesome awesome. Lots of fun really fun to hang out with a lot of them live in their own. Apartments go party at their. It's great and then the rest of them are all these like chips and biff with their fucking flipped collars you know and and you know and I was like this is not for me the and then I went to film school a little bit more of a breakdown like okay. Yeah these are my Weirdos and then when they get to Improv. That's that's when right right okay so it took a while but I I have done like I've thought about the same thing like from my daughter who's a very creative funny person and she goes to a really nice school here but it's it's a regular school and there's a couple of arts high schools. There's a charter. Art High School downtown and I really really encouraged her to get involved with that. Because I had this I had this feeling and I told her the sooner you get around creative. You're going to be a creative person. I don't see you getting getting an MBA right now. I don't see you become so I do think the quicker you get around a big group of creative people the better just the better your. It's it's one of the few sort of tried to hand as non intrusive Yousef and like project my my wants and needs onto my kids. Let them do what they WANNA do. But this is one. I got a pretty good idea who you are. I got a pretty good idea that similar to the way I was in. This is what I would have done or what I would if I had to do it over. So it's the same thing it's like get around creative people as quickly quickly as you. Can you know I would say the same for my son Oliver. Yes as soon as he can get to that the better as he's a funny creative kid yeah and and Luckily Gaggle of friends now are kind of these neat little kind sweet. My kids were the same way. Yeah the same way too two but it so it's and my daughter's decided no she's going to stay where she is and she likes where she says she's doing real well. She likes it a lot but it was just it was something then. I wanted to this to a couple of years when they're struggling with transitioning into teen. Yeah she's a freshman in high school now. No she's Eighth Grade. She's a year older than Oliver. I thought she was two years now. Eighth Grade It's more than two thousand six two thousand five. She's a little old for her in class. You know what I'm young for his. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah so Mike say he's smart so he's in there little sooner. Sure I get it yeah. He's just lost his parents. Parents are those kind of pushed their kid beyond what they should We do not I WanNa yes and your bits but I will not I will not fake it you cannot ever. Yeah I you know my parents never did either. And maybe that's why I was a C. Student but I'm being generous but I I don't I don't want to look at his report at his grades. Every what'd you get on that tested the next one I've had I've had it's been it's been a source of virtue between me and my ex wife through over the years of like she's like I'd be like I gotta pay attention to this school stool shits okay. You know 'cause a my mother. My Dad was not there right my mother it was like hey go do you do did. Did you do your homework. Okay that's it. And then like two times a year a parent teacher conference and that was pretty much. That was school back then. That was what it was. Ah Yes yeah and now because it is different now. It's like super into everybody but there was like a we I would you try and like I got to be in this and I got and then we get to the point. Where like they're doing long division? I realized I don't know how to do long division anymore at all. I don't know how to do who. It's so sorry kids right in find. See if you can find it on Youtube. I don't you know but I remember having like kind of a a conflict with Sarah wants. where she I get the sense that you just don't really care about their grades and their school and you're right? I don't really burning running because a they both are because I got good grades. Nobody was pushing me to get good grades. I didn't get as I gotta be. Plus as with an entire entire school career of if he'd apply himself more and it's like man. I'm applying myself way more than I want to hold these pluses and so I'm not. I'm not that worried. And there was never felt burdened by this you. They got to get into Harvard. Shit I don't give a fuck go to community college. I don't care hundred percent. They're going to be fine. You know because they're going to be smart creative kids in there. and Ah I if this this. And this is all predicated on knowing them long enough to know that they are self sufficient that they have a sense of standards that maintain themselves for themselves. Like my kids don't want sees. They WANNA do better. They want to excel just out of a natural sort of human urge urge. And we do encourage you know do a good job but whatever you're doing if you're going to do the dishes don't do sloppy. Yeah good job. It's all part of the same thing I interrupt. You don't have somebody comes into those that for you. Children wash the dishes. You don't help now. We don't have. I mean and for to be frank. Most of the time I gave up that ghost and I'd be like I don't WanNa fight with just do the fucking digits myself. I'd be energy kid. We got a dishwasher. I mean load the dishwasher or Stan. Dan He comes in on a daily basis. And go how you doing stand. Yeah I hear Ya Block and you wait around for. Put them out in the yard.

Hart the same for all of them that Jimmy could be a chameleon and be a manager just for that guy or just for that team in that particular situation and that's what made Jimmy Different. He he would become a part of whoever it was that he was managing. Let's let's talk about the Honky. tonk man he comes into the WWF. As a baby face he's a friend of Hulk Hogan's least in storyline very quickly turned heel and put with Jimmy. I understand understand why they would put him with Jimmy that I guess make sense but let's talk briefly about Honky tonk man. Why do you think turned him so quickly? 'CAUSE wasn't getting over does it was as simple as that. They think in Vincent saw Honky Tonk man as this huge baby face. That was coming in Hogan's buddy so instantly it'd be a baby face. Everyone love them. All Contol angry I am very but it was so over the top and in a very arrogant way the audience puked him up and and they had no choice but to turn it. Or there's three or four things I can say they're Let's talk about Jimmy in Memphis. He managed manage honky and Kevin Sullivan their attack team. But he's not the first pick for Vince. McMahon's manager of choice for Honky tonk man. Apparently Mr Fuji of hockey didn't want that. So they put him with Jimmy instead. How different would the heart care with fucking Mr Fuji Honky? tonk man. Yes he gonNa do the shake rattle. Roll you yeah that would have been the Jerusalem sheets. That's the worst mischief ridge impression. I've ever heard thank you very much. June second nice eighty. Seven hockey would beat the Ricky the dragon steamboat the intercontinental title. And there's this big infatuation with Butch Reed lately that I guess people just not coming coming around to realize that Butch Reed invented net flicks and actually butch was a big part of Apple Computer's. I didn't yeah there. Were stay jobs. The other guy butchery and it was it was a threesome and uh butch was going to be the silent partner. When he went to Florida where he got over like a motherfucker and and he said you know what guys? I've got enough money. I've got an idea for this whole Netflix. Thing you guys go ahead and take. He didn't need time. Lower like a motherfucker floor. I don't know that you saw this but over the holidays Bush read because he's still with us as well I should it'd be celebrated he. He recently visited for the holiday the Virgin Islands and now they're just the Allen's Anyway let's get to. Oh yeah I read that too. I believe I mean with all that money. He's got I mean. I don't know that you know that. But he helped broker the deal for Vince McMahon to get the XFL back on TV. Of course you probably at the meeting you know So Ricky's supposed to lose the intercontinental continental title here to Butch Reed but butchery was busy inventing Netflix that day So he no showed Knowing that you know his fortune was right around the corner so they needed someone to beat Ricky and take the belt off of it because ricky needed time off supposedly hulk convince are talking about it in the hallway and Hawks Bah and supposedly hoax at what about him. And that's the legend of how the greatest intercontinental champion of all time came to be. How much of that? The believe is consumer in any window. I think it's probably fifty percent as like there may be some portions that the motive actually actually happened but it probably has grown into a bigger story than it actually was well. We know that Hawk is going to go on to be the greatest intercontinental champion of all time. let's keep all gone baby all time hockey starts doing a feud with The Macho Man Randy Savage Bridge which is what effectively turns rainy baby face and Jimmy said that one Tom Haughey did or a dance in front of Lisbeth and sent Randy off and hockey tried to explain. It was just Elvis type dance move and that caused some problems between them and because of that hockey refused to drop the title to Randy. Now this is all all new wrinkles stuff. I hadn't heard before that supposedly there was a real life situation because honky was doing some sort of Elvis impression dance and gas S. Randy thought he's trying to get with Elizabeth in real life. I'd never heard this before as your this before. No I and we just before. Jimmy says that Eventually he would be the one who helped get randy into the company. That's worth a rewind. Randy's Randy's working in Memphis Jimmy. Gets a hold of him tells him. Vince really wants them in the company and Randy and Jimmy meet the next day. Jimmy gives him George Scott's number and the rest is history. Talk to US shirt doctors. A little bit about your recollection because I know that story has been retold alive but savage was a little paranoid. And we've talked about that here on the show but even about this call coming in right. Well Yeah but yes and no it was randy could be very suspicious and just not very trustworthy of anybody so randy you know looking Kennedy thing. I don't WanNa be butt of a joke. And if somebody's ribbon him you know Randy and Jimmy Har Come. I'm an because they had both been in Memphis at the same time Radius told me that Jimmy came tomb basically for whatever reason Zain Randy took it as the Gospel in they got together but it was Jimmy. Hart who vouched for Randy savage having worked with him for only a little bit in Memphis And then is I say you know the rest is history and got to take the chance on the Macho Man Randy. Take the chance on this and got everybody together in the Risto Hung. Yeah forget I need my two listing omits on my boots and my ass wrestlemainia. Three Jimmy's involved volved in three matches at the show. His first appearance with adorable Adrian Donald. WHO's taking on Roddy Piper? Then comes the six man with heart. Foundation Danny Davis on one inside versus the bulldogs and Tito Santana on the other. The third appearance on the show hockey talk and jake the Snake Roberts of course shake Alice Cooper in his corner and after the match match. Jimmy's left alone in the ring. Robertson Cooper team up to scare him with a pet snake Damien. Pretty Primetime moment here for Jimmy and biggest just wrestling card of all time. Jimmy's not on at once. He's on it three times. Not a bad gig three times and probably worth about seventy five percent of a payoff in nineteen eighty seven. Jimmy would manage the WWF. Women's tag team champions Judy Martin and Leilani Johny Konno's the glamour girls and They're most famously GONNA feud with Japanese team that has gone to become an internet wrestling. Legend the jumping bomb angels these women's tag titles when these days don't get talked about a lot. What's your favorite women's tag team championship match from? Nineteen ninety seven it was. It was a lot of Boston Gardens at time. Over the summer. Walls were sweating. They do so fucking hot. Eighty seven in a year for Jimmy. As I mean we couldn't have landed out any plainer. he wins pro wrestling illustrated's manager of the year as he should have. Did you guys in the office. I mean this is like something what I kept up with anybody else. Keep up with anything from pro wrestling illustrated or what was the relationship like with the quote. UNQUOTE APTER MAGS. There wasn't on because WWF had their own magazine so the concentration was put on their own periodical. And just making that All that it could be The rest of it. Yeah they were out there but it wasn't. It wasn't taken seriously all that was was made up or should anyway so at least have our own mate uproar shit line what are you saying was made up the wrestler and inside wrestling Illustrate Oh straight. I'm telling Ya not hurts but you know. Remember when they had the picture phone interviews those real interviews yeah. They weren't what. What does that mean? They had a guy in Memphis interviewing jerry. lawler in another guy in Los Angeles interviewing Dr Jerry Graham. They weren't on a picture phone man that didn't even speak. Oh Fuck Wrestlemania four. Let's fast forward. Jimmy would receive even haircut from British. The Barber beefcake after interview interfering rather in the Intercontinental Championship match between beefcake and hockey and he helps hockey retain the title by getting getting the queued later in the year the ratio brothers turned heel and they are then renamed the fabulous resume brothers and given Jimmy as their manager. And the Hart Foundation would fire Jimmy as a manager and then turn baby face and late eighty eight and then Jimmy would manage the ratio brothers to feud with his former team and the angle was the heart seal retained managerial rights to his former team and he gave a portion of that to the ratios Which is sort interesting? Why is it decided in this era to turn the Har- foundation into baby faces chart something noon? Fill the late had a little bit of a a baby face change to them already. It was specially at that time with the rouges who you thank God too good looking young guys. It'd be perfect baby faces but the American audiences just did not care for the Rubio's and putting Jimmy with them and then doing them. We're all American boys. Which Jimmy Hart wrote in Jimmy Hart recorded with Rouge's doing the vocals for it got so much heat because now you were saying how I think that the American audience audience saw the show they were foreigners dammit gladys in fucking day four for Milo Montreal's gotta be some country far far probably Russia just sway the Review let's let's make them all American boys. Okay so are slim eighty-eight Jimmy going to accompany demolition. and Mr Fuji Pertain. The tag titles against the harmonization acts would use Hart's Megaphone as a foreign object hit brad hard the head with it for the win. I should mention agents mentioned the top.

What person place thing concept phenomenon or event will we be talking about today? Well thank you to our patron box. Some not allowed near the end zone of giant stadium. Actually suits me just fine. I didn't WanNa go anyway but today we'll be talking about union leader Jimmy Hoffa who nc so you read between the lines. Are you ready to sell up the river literally any price talking skit. I I don't even care to huma. Hoffa Jimmy Hoffa was an American labor union leader when that actually meant something now it means that you're probably late on your mortgage. Yeah he was the president of the International Brotherhood of teamsters which is the truckers union and my dad teamster for several decades could not say this guy's name without calling him a crook he also went missing in one thousand nine hundred ninety five. They declared him dead seven years later but they've never found the remains and there were no convictions in the disappearance it just like Osama bin Laden and JFK. Interesting not at all like no yeah unrelated those people we shots I penciled dammit cancelled episode a hole in the forest take aac three. Jimmy was born in Brazil. Indiana Worst Carnival disappoint a AH fell one can use the bathroom. It was born on February fourteenth nineteen thirteen Valentine's baseball his his dad John Hoffa died. When Jimmy was seven from lung disease and the rest of the family moved to Detroit win? Hoffa was eleven. He quit school at fourteen years old and worked manual labor. Jobs like painting fulltime jean-mrs Apple Tree Shoe would be terrible if someone would paint your house when you at least you know what. This doesn't make any sense. I gotta get the new. y'All remember when people move to Detroit fifties. Yeah they're giving a stipend for that. They've been trying to get back. We have water now. You can drink on bottled some here. Hoffa moved on from painting houses to working in a grocery store chain when he was a teen. He became involved with the Union and organized labor. Around this time the job he was working page. Shitty wages had shittier working conditions and not a ton of job security so think professional snow podcast there with a boss done. That has nobody to blame but himself for his as best does covered. Works didn't do that. That especially since the workers wanted to unionize and Hoffa took the union leadership naturally Hoffa became inspired to work as a union organizer after a run in with an abusive forman when Jimmy stood up to him. The other employees were impressed by him so he moved on from that job and became became an organizer with the teamsters in Detroit local to ninety nine back when threatening people effectively was a valid line. Item on your resume. I I live in the wrong era. How about I fucking kill you? As a negotiation tactic that is sadly underused in today's Labour agree. Now it's fucking starve you and it's used by the other team and I don't mean you're fired and you're GonNa Starve. Congratulations you work at Walmart. Now you are below low the poverty. You made it to starvation cheeses a few years later. While working with non unionized laundry workers on their strike. He meets his soon to be wife. Josephine they married six months later. In September of Nineteen thirty six they go on to have two kids a daughter Barbara and a son James and I wanNA just quote wikipedia. Pedia here so you can hear the house price quote. The HOFFA's paid six thousand eight hundred dollars in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine for modest home in northwest Detroit. The family later owned a simple simple summer. Lakefront cottage in Orion Township Michigan North of Detroit. His son by the way thirty plus years after Jimmy is removed as the teamsters teamsters union president takes over the position. He's been the president since nineteen ninety. Nine yes true fact about that House in Detroit. It's actually worth less now than it was seven. Grandma gives you everything. North of I ninety in in the thirties the forties the teamsters grew pretty significantly in both numbers and power in one thousand nine hundred eighty when they were founded they had seventy five thousand members. There was a push push by Hoffa and other union leaders to consolidate other trucker unions with T- with the teamsters that made their membership grow to one hundred seventy thousand in nineteen thirty six and four hundred twenty thousand in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and it was over a million by nineteen fifty one off one a bunch. A contract disputes using quickie strikes quickie strikes. We're only one side is happy about the outcome that checks get term and the Secondary Boycotts which leveraged other related industries to pressure Asher to put pressure on another to get them to cave to the demands of the Union would be like a grocery store strike to help get rights for farm laborers. It's hard to wrap your head around it but back then workers actually cared about other workers also since the teamsters were connected to a ton of professions since they delivered raw materials. Finish this project is that are they. Would they use to become the most powerful union in the country right That's why Amazon workers each their own P. Bucket now on everything and hey fun. Fact that secondary boycotts thing literally illegal now. So yeah if you're in a union don't like root too hard for a second bucket per a person shall. We can't even get everyone in the same room to decide that people shouldn't go bankrupt or die if they get sick I try to convince people to take time off of work to strike. Because their neighbors are striking is Utopian dreamscapes. We will never see again something. which I just said about the nineteen seventies seventies and the mob had its dirty hands in the pie to the truckers union were totally in bed with the Mafia? So this means that Hoffa in order to get and maintain power in the unions had to deal with mafia bosses quote he had to make accommodations and arrangements with many gangsters. Beginning getting in the Detroit area organized crime influence over the I bt would expand as the union itself crew and quote okay but Nowadays Union leaders have to get in bed with unsavory unsavory characters like US Congress Giambi two hours so even though Hoffa was a teamster n a union organizer Eiser. He never worked as a truck driver. Or a doc and that's how management works though and that's why it's better in nineteen forty six. In December. Jimmy Hoffa became the president of the Detroit. Local to ninety nine Hoffa received a draft letter for World War Two and he quote obtained a deferment deferment from military service in World War Two by successfully making a case for his union leadership skills being more valuable to the nation by keeping freight running smoothly to to assist the war effort end quote shortly thereafter. He became the head of the Michigan. teamsters dear Uncle Sam. These kneecaps ain't gonNA break themselves. I'M GONNA go ahead and pass La Jim I love it. The actual deferment was based on. I'm too important to get shot in. What does it say.

Joe ties men to TMZ when asked about the possibility of changing the team's name. Let's listen. So the Cleveland Indians, they're changing their logo after so many years, the time for the Redskins to do the same or you know, I don't own the Washington Redskins and it's it's really not my decision and dance night is here I, we are friends. I've known Dan for a long time. Dan's going to make whatever decision he feels is right. I've talked a lot of native Americans in this country. They seem to be okay with the name the Redskins. So we try and honor them every day and do the best we can to represent the nations that are out there. Bomani what do you make of Mr.? Dies defense. I just wanna know where where did he talk to all these native Americans? Did he call some caucus of native Americans didn't show up at the native American conclave. You have right. Where is this? The jokes is, has this audience with all these native Americans where it's like, hey, guys, look, I was just curious and wondering what it was that you were thinking of a survey. Where does this? Where does this take place? What is the number that threshold the standard of enough for you to feel like that you've got a Representative standard and wind? Did your notion of respect only be determined by what the response is to? We know what isn't isn't cool, and that's not cool. Says every day I try to honor them and I would ask him whether he has looked at like the dictionary because they're all these polls and surveys enjoy ties monds defense about this percentage of native Americans actually have this degree of problem with the name, but I feel like it. Good rule of thumb is whether the dictionary says that it is quote, derogatory and offensive. If your team name is in the dictionary as being derogatory and offensive to a group of people that has been historically oppressed by America. I feel like that's easy. We did around the world was that I want to do for my face. They had Hispanic Heritage Day or something like that at the stadium in Landover. Right? They had that. And my FaceTime was, I asked the question. It was like, oh, so we're honoring our Hispanic brothers and sisters. I mean that we're going to break out the Sambre rose and the mustaches into bigger tars and everybody around was like, oh God. But I was like, what's the difference between what they actually do with their team? And everybody was like, oh, right. Another good test. Would you say the word in like life without feeling weird? Nice guard. I learn magic for eight years. Said Dwight Howard or the Washington Wizards, introduce him to the media yesterday, Pablo just wipe his urge be left after this. Let's listen.

The one thing we've told white Howard as a people is that Dwight Howard you are very, very corny. Dwight Howard does not care at all. And in fact, over the last decade, he has been resolutely more corny every year. And for that reason, I almost kind of perversely begin to respect it. He just doesn't seem to care what people say.
