Spilled coffee on Rolling Stones’ guitarist
Keith Richards white shirt right before he went on stage at The Tower
Theater in Philadelphia, PA. Keith wasn’t mad, but amused. He put his
arm around Pat and proceeded to warm up before the show by singing
horribly off-key and drinking copious amounts of a beverage Mr. Richards
called “Nuclear Nightmare”. He looked down at his coffee stained shirt
and remarked, “Looks like puke... It’ll be good for my image”.
Hates Don McClean. Don pissed Pat off in his hometown of Wilkes
Barre, PA where he was opening for the singer/songwriter/douchebag. Pat
went onstage and regaled the crowd with Don’s boring backstage behavior
and then sang a very unflattering version of Don’s only hit, “American
Performed “The Aaron Neville Song” on The Howard Stern Show live from Cleveland, OH.
Has appeared on 6 Bob & Tom CDs, 3 times on 2 albums... a comedian record.
Followed Crosby, Stills, and Nash performing “Suite Judy Blue Eyes”
at The Spectrum in Philadelphia, PA in front of 22,000 people for WMMR’s
20th birthday party. It’s hard to do well after the acoustic
super-group sings, “Do do do do do, do do do do do do” and gets a
standing ovation lasting 10 minutes.
Wrote a song called, “Sing Potato, Sing!” in reference to a snarky
comment from Randy Newman about Brian Wilson in a Rolling Stone Magazine
article. Randy heard it, loved it and came on WMMR’s Morning Zoo in
Philadelphia, PA to perform it with him.
Met Eric Clapton at Sigma Studios, when the guitar icon was hitting
on his girlfriend at the time. Clapton realized his mistake, and ended
up hanging out with Pat and listening to a rough mix of “Elvis Is Coming
Back For Christmas” off his Reindeer Games CD. Eric signed Pat’s Guild
acoustic guitar (something he rarely does) and he gave that guitar to
his friend, Tom Griswold (co-host of The Bob & Tom Show) for
producing his album, “Under The Bed”. It hangs in Tom’s office.
Played Pinball Wizard with Pete Townsend of The Who on WMMR’s Morning
Zoo, while broadcasting from London. Pete signed Pat’s Takamine guitar.
It hangs in his office.
Was the original home shopping show host for a company called, “Video Mall” before QVC started.
Held his high school pole vault record for over 20 years.
Did the voices for Inspector Gadget and Batman for The Kartoon Krew. It went to #5 on Billboard in the 80’s.
Bristles when people call his original songs, “song parodies”, and despises the term “Guitar Act”.
