Good Morning Everybody!
In addition to Seth Rogen dropping by the studio, Howard revealed that Charlie Sheen's ex-girlfriend and frequent Stern Show guest Bree Olson would be coming by later in the morning in light of Sheen's admission on the "TODAY" show that he has been HIV positive for years. Bree got tested on Monday and brought her results to reveal live on the air, in addition to telling her side of the story which contradicts what Charlie told Matt Lauer.
Neil Young's Early Performance of "Old Man"
Howard was also excited about a video he saw making the rounds online featuring a 26-year-old Neil Young performing his hit "Old Man" for one of the first times after writing it.
"It's ridiculously good," he said.
As you may have heard, Jeff The Drunk's one-night extravaganza in LA was opened up to 40 lucky people and today, the longtime Wack Packer called in to announce that there are only 8 tickets left to the December 2nd event -- so if you were thinking of going, now's the time to decide!
There will be live cooking. There will be a Q&A. There will be karaoke. And of course, there will be Jeff the Drunk. More info and tickets can be found here.
Bobo's Got A Question & It Ain't So Bad
Bobo called in later in the morning and hit Howard with a slow ball wondering if he thought six months into retirement David Letterman was upset with his decision.
"I think Bobo really is running out of questions, because I've spoken about Letterman's retirement, about the beard," Howard chided him. "You know my feelings are that he got pushed out."
Looking to redeem himself, Bobo threw a curveball at Fred asking him to tell the story of his name-change. Fred was relentless in telling Bobo how bad of a question it was and insisting that he was just "rehashing old stuff" in an attempt to be relevant. But Howard disagreed, telling Bobo that he "hit it out of the park" with that question.
Though Fred has discussed the changes to his first and last name before, today's explanation turned into an intriguing conversation for both superfans and casual listeners alike with some details you may have never heard before.
Tune in to the full show on Howard 100 to hear how he went from a guy named Fred Leo Nukis to a guy named Eric Fred Norris who still goes by Fred.
