RS: Pete Yorn, Joe Pernice, Alice Cooper and more weigh in on Roger Clemens

Wuh? They couldn’t locate Crocus Behemoth?

Name: Joe Pernice ~ Band: Pernice Brothers

He’s a distraction from what is otherwise a pretty unique season. He should get out of the way. He probably can pitch for the Astros, but not for long. A “non-medicated” guy 10 years his junior is constantly on the verge of falling apart physically. I’m in my 40s, and I injure myself around the house weekly. Dumb ####, like peeling a banana. No way a clean Roger Clemens lasts anywhere in professional baseball. Guy has a glass groin. Is this just a publicity stunt? Doubtful. I think his ego is too big for that. Is he trying to “re-set the clock” on his first Hall of Fame ballot? Probably. I’d let him in the Hall if he promised to exile himself to Cabo or Margaritaville or somewhere like that.

Name: Steve Earle

I just think he’s an #######.

Ahh, the irony of over-the-hill rockers telling people they should retire!

Until they get Malkmus' opinion, we don't care.

How does Jimmy Buffett feel about this?

How about 157 Riverside Avenue?

I used to be in my 40s, in days now gone; and I have no idea how you can possibly injure yourself peeling a banana.

Oh, it can (or technically, will) be done.

Without knowing Roger Clemens personally, my guess is that Steve Earle is correct.

In that very possibly misinformed way we fans have of "knowing" celebrities, I can state that Mr. Earle is very possibly calling the kettle here.

you said it franny. love a bunch of his work, but what an insufferable dbag.

on second thought, maybe he was having a bad day. don't want to judge.

It's probably this.

Someone told me the latest Stephen Malkmus album is terrific. True or false?

Funny how everyone just assumes he's not on the juice.

That's one way to describe what the 2012 Houston Astros have done.
