Was scrolling through the pages to make sure I wasn't going to double post about another topic, but when I saw a "Rust Never Sleeps" page, I had to chime in this insane story (dunno if anyone's heard this or not, apologies in advance):
Okay. Swear to God, I'm not making this up, though the story itself might be as 'questionable' as it's narrator, but it's still pretty amusing anyway. The person who told me this was Kimmy Robertson (Lucy the secretary from "Twin Peaks"). She's an... interesting character to say the least. Her story: Back in the day, before Devo really took off, Mark Mothersbaugh lived in an apartment building that his parents owned in Akron, OH. In exchange for free rent, he was the building's super/handyman. He took such pride in the job, he would wear a worn jumpsuit and an ape mask whenever he had to make the rounds. Neil Young came through town on tour, and visited the building because Mark's brother (name escapes me) invented a electric drum set of sorts and wanted to check it out. The group was hanging out and playing music when at 3AM, Mark got a call because someone was having problems with their pipes and wanted them fixed. Neil said to blow it off and stay, why go now? Wait 'till the morning. Mark threw on the jumpsuit and ape mask and said... "Rust Never Sleeps."
As I said, pretty outlandish. I'd like to believe it's true. Kimmy insisted it was b/c she knew Mothersbaugh, so who knows. But there you have it.
EDIT: Grammar and nonsense.
