But At Least His Money Was Safe 

Life must be dull on the Counting Crows' tourbus. The band's primary hobby is doing what their name suggests. I understand their grand total of corvine enumeration is well into quintuple figures. Such a moniker-related hobby isn't restricted to just this band, not by a long shot. The Stone Roses, in the early days, spent their days travelling from dive to toilet inflicting biblical punishment on purchases from the florists nearest the previous night's venue. The Rolling Stones loved nothing more than, well... just that. It's different now, of course: they watch from their private helicopters as teams of gold-plated JCBs roll boulders down hillsides.

The Smashing Pumpkins spent a lot of money on cleaning their tourbuses' interiors, and also a fair bit on new hammers. A Canadian band called Crash Test Dummies had a big hit with "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm", some years ago - they had to mumble due to injuries incurred during the day job: one crumpled car too many. If it wasn't the Pretenders playing their instruments, just who was it, eh? Anyone seen a picture of The Pretty Things? Are they? Norah Jones has a group in which all the other members are men: the group is called the Little Willies. I wonder...

The less said here about Johnny Cash, the better.
