Burned into Memory

We saw this on Letterman when it originally aired in 1987, when Dave was still on NBC and Paul Shaffer’s band was just four guys–four guys with 80’s hair. We’ve been talking about it ever since, because, as you’ll see, once you see Bobby Badfingers, it gets burned into your memory. Mercifully, it has not caused any nightmares, just laughter every time we hear “Wipe Out!”

UPDATE: According to SF Weekly, Mr. Badfingers (pictured nearby) “quit selling RVs in 2000 to tour full-time. He was temporarily slowed down a year ago when San Francisco cops jailed him for a week…but he quickly bot back to business producing Web pilots for a finger-snapping focused children’s television show.”

Look what has become of Bobby Badfingers.
