    “It sounded great and it was easy to dance to. I give it a 95.”

    I liked the Pyramid shows – the “$10,000 Pyramid” and the “$25,000 Pyramid”

    And I like to misquote “American Bandstand” to fit me: It has a good beat but I can’t dance, so I will give it a 63.

    Died of a hear attack? What happened, did they play his music too loud?
