well, Steve Page is gone; and as far as I’m concerned, he and Ed were the Barenaked Ladies.
my wife broke the news to me thusly: “oh yeah, the other week*, Jodi told me Steve Perry left the Barenaked Ladies.” close, but not quite.
and why did it not cross your mind to tell me this the-other-week-ago? I’ve been a fan since my bootleg copy of The Yellow Tape and that early concert at Ontario Place, 1991? 1992?
not that I’m all that broken up about it. I guess Stephanie Ford ended up being their Yoko Ono. it was bound to happen eventually. “King of Bedside Manner” to follow…
— dude, Steve’s Yoko ad-lib in the middle of that song is exactly why BNL will never be the same.
