That Eazy-E can really rap his ass off!

I ran into Wesley Willis at a Kinkos in Wicker Park, Chicago. To be honest I smelled him as soon as I walked in the door. We were both making flyers for our bands. The clerk was trying to kiss his ass saying, “Wow, Wesley, I love your stuff. Do you have any tour/album plans, blah, blah, blah?” Wesely told the guy to fuck off and and get out of his way. As I busted out laughing he started lunging at me trying to head butt me I think. At the time I didn’t know that was his schtick. Then he told me to get the fuck out of his way, which I did due to the fact that Wesley was a very large man. Anyway he died last Thursday. Here’s a link to the the story. Here is another. I was hanging out at Heiko’s apartment in Lehrte a few months back and he had the Wesley Willis album with Rock and Roll McDonalds on it. It was a new experience for my friend Jens. We sat around and laughed. The refrain was in our heads for the remainder of the weekend.

Update: Here is a great interview with Wesley from April 19, 1996.
