(I had thought of Fiona Apple before the show, and then thought it would be really funny to say she was married to Apple D Ap. I almost couldn’t keep a straight face while saying it, but I guess my acting was so Oscar-worthy that Matt believed me. And also it wasn’t funny. But it still makes me chuckle. – Darryl)

Behind the Scenes with Darryl:
Strangely, this episode of Behind the Scenes starts with Jordan, Jesse, Go! Jesse had invited me several times to sit in on a JJGo taping, but every time the schedule didn’t work out. The last time was about a year ago, and it was all set. But then they had to record a day early, and due to Jesse traveling and some miscommunication, I didn’t get notified. So by the time I called to confirm a time, the show was already done. Ah well. So, I touched base again on this trip and it worked it out. Thanks, Jesse!
I got to MaxFun HQ and chatted with Jordan, Jesse, and Brian for a bit while we waited for the guest. When Riley Silverman showed up, I recognized her as having sat in for Garon on NNF and introduced myself. It took her a few minutes to figure out I was “that Darryl” and then we realized we’d both be on NNF the next day. We tried to devise a plan to act like we hated each other on NNF, because, as I put it, “There’s nothing Jimmy likes better than someone putting on a skit that he’s not aware of.” The plan didn’t gel, although she did try by accusing me of stalking her when she came into the room. But it was great to see Riley two days in a row!
My reason for coming to LA on this trip was specifically to see Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets. As I said on the show, the early Pink Floyd is my least favorite, even though as a teenager I listened to it constantly. But I couldn’t pass up seeing it performed live. I almost backed out, but am so glad I didn’t. I knew Jenn would have no interest in seeing the show, but I got two tickets knowing that someone in LA would be happy to join me. The most obvious candidate was Murray Valeriano, who is a big Pink Floyd Fan (see Rock Solid Episode #250 for our Pink Floyd episode), or Pat Francis, who is not particularly a fan but loves concerts of all kinds. Turns out Murray was booked that night for a show, and since Pat generously lets me stay in his guest wing when I visit, the least I could do was take him to a show he might hate.
Pat was totally unfamiliar with any of the early Floyd work. I warned him ahead that I could not guarantee his enjoyment, nor my own. But we both loved it! They wisely shortened some of the more abstract “psychedelic noodling” portions, and the musicianship and vocals were excellent. I really hope a live album comes out of this tour, because I liked those versions much better than the studio ones. At the end, Pat said, “Was that really almost two hours? It flew by! I loved it!”
Anyway, big thanks to the guys for once again letting me stop in!
