What I Am Is What I Am
Well, I thought it was easy. Edie Brickell had a band called the New Bohemians. She had a massive hit with "What I Am", and the album was entitled "Shooting Rubberbands At The Stars". On a related note, the producer of that album, Pat Moran, passed away just a couple weeks ago. Moran had twiddled the knobs on many albums, including Robert Plant's Pictures At Eleven and The Principle Of Moments, as well as Iggy Pop's Soldier and Big Country's No Place Like Home.
While performing her hit on Saturday Night Live, she noticed Paul Simon standing next to the cameraman. Their eyes locked and that was it. "He made me mess the song up when I looked at him," she said with a smile. "We can show the kids the tape and say, 'Look, that's when we first laid eyes on each other.'" They married two years later.
OK, next question, speaking of Iggy Pop:
On which television show from the early '90s did Iggy appear as Michelle Trachtenberg's character's overly protective father?
