A caller asked Artie why his usual “FIYAH!” catchphrases seemed lackluster at his recent charity gig in Detroit, so Artie explained he’d fallen out of love with it: “It’s fun because the crowd likes it, but…”

Howard laughed that Artie must be growing as an artist, but Artie sarcastically dismissed the idea: “I just wanna be like Springsteen and have people hold up signs for whatever shit thing I’m known for.”
