Guest: Nancy Sinatra. She's currently on tour Nancy's website

& playing the Knitting Factory in L.A. tonight. Told a story about

brownies.Somehow they got on the subject of shampoo. Steve uses a
tar-smelling dandruff shampoo. He doesn't have dandruff though. So
Nancy smells his hair. "Smells good." she sez. "I haven't washed
it in two weeks!" Jonesy replies. Steve played Sid's version of
"My Way", which Nancy had never heard before.

They played a few songs live and gave away an amplifier. The
winner happened to be female. "What if she doesn't play an
instrument?" Steve wondered. "She can give it to her loser
musician boyfriend," he joked. "Yeah, who sleeps on the floor,"
one of the band members quipped. "And then she comes home from
stripping and gives him all her money." Steve added, finishing up
the familiar joke about musicians & strippers.(No, the winner was
not a stripper, they were just joking.)

moving around, burping, farting.." "What kind of girls do you go
out with?" Mr. Shovel asked, bemused. "And then around three a.m.
I get up and go to the couch and the bird is all offended. 'Why
won't you sleep next to me?'"
