    I could make up a really absurd story about Artie Sinatra being the love child of Frank Sinatra and Fat Albert’s mother, but I will hold off.

    "Whether or not I murdered anyone is irelatimive. It’s not what this campaign’s about, no sir, let’s stick to the issues, like tax cuts." – GWB [img]images/smiles/converted/eek.gif[/img]



    Artie, the media-sensation that almost never was, was a demented social experiment gone awry at UMass Amhurts in the mid-80’s. Artie presented himself to two Brett dormdwellers as an opportunity to alleviate the deadening routine of partygoing during those darkest chapters of college life. Under their shameful supervision, Artie rose to the early occasions splendidly. But he kept rising, ascending, like Willy Wonka’s glass elevator, beyond all social boundaries until, inevitably, the crash-and-burn grisly end of it all (which, of course, was not really the end of it all). For dino fans, Artie appeared at several early gigs, putting all of himself into a short selection of Neil Young covers. But that contribution is negligible when compared to his brilliant collaboration with Ms. Maura Jasper. Yes, that’s Artie himself rising over the peak of Mt. Wherever on the cover of the first dinosaur lp. Artie is the sun.
    Who loves the sun? Had he known, Lou Reed surely wouldn’t have asked that. But J knew. His answer? Take a run at the sun….



    Whoever wrote that last reply sure is knowledgible. Arty Hurwitz should be everyone’s sunshine.



    Thanks for all the info! wow, that is pretty cool stuff.
    A related question:
    Is that [img]images/smiles/converted/sun_smiley.gif[/img]Artie [img]images/smiles/converted/sun_smiley.gif[/img] on Feel a Whole Lot Better too?
    (Time Between – a Byrds Tribute)
    Sounds like it…



    I think that Artie is on the back of the BBC Sessions too(or in there some where…) I met Artie and J once. A girl said to J "Is this your freind?" J said "I have no freinds…" Artie grinned. They were convinced that Artie had a perfectly square head.

    I did not know that Artie could sing though. I thought he was just Dino’s mascot or something.

    Also, I thought that Artie was the Guy standing in the field of popies on the cover of the Dinosaur record as well as the sun. So… who is that standing then?
