Steve Almond's Joy: Author Pops Broner for Bob Schneider, Discovers Dildo at Dave Grohl's House

Judging from his book, Almond clearly wishes this lollipop were Bob Schneider's...iPod.
Candyfreak author Steve Almond will read from his latest tome, Rock & Roll Will Save Your Life, at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park (17171 Bothell Way N.E.) this Thursday and Friday evenings at 7 p.m.

As Almond would attest, every good show deserves a proper pre-funk. Thankfully, two of our sister papers in the middle of the country have managed to catch the author, a former Miami New Times writer, at his most vulnerable.

Almond gave my alma mater, St. Louis' Riverfront Times, permission to print a lengthy excerpt from his new book. In it, Almond delves into his lifelong bromance with the bearded folk-rocker Bob Schneider, something he also touches on in a recent Q&A with the Houston Press' Rocks Off blog.

In the Houston Q&A, Almond hilariously describes Styx's Kilroy Was Here as "like the album that Ayn Rand and her pool boy fucked to." But what really caught our eye was the following exchange:

Rocks Off: What was the most surprising thing you saw in Dave Grohl's house?

Steve Almond: The Ass Quake Dildo with Rotating Clitoral Cuff definitely caught me off guard.

Yeah, we think it's a safe bet that Almond's upcoming LFP gigs ought to be a pinch more entertaining than your standard suburban shopping mall fly-by.
