harpmolly Roy Zimmerman - Tom Lehrer's successor? (12) RE: Roy Zimmerman - Tom Lehrer's successor? 26 Sep 08

I just saw him three weeks or so ago (2nd time) and he was BRILLIANT. OK, yes, I'm a bit of a fan (have been becoming progressively more obsessed since I discovered him). But his lyrical brilliance (and preciseness!) are matched only by his sharp wit and yes, his passion...with all the funny songs he writes, "Thanks for the Support" goes straight to the gut, as does the last song on his new CD ("I Approve This Message".

He also has great comic timing and stage presence. Even though I'd heard most of the songs several times already, I howled throughout the performance because he kept adding nuances and making it very individual. Great stuff.

He's got a challenge to everyone on YouTube to post covers of his song "Defenders of Marriage". I think it would be fun to dress in drag and do a cover...unfortunately my guitar skills are nonexistent and his chords are WAY too out there to play on the harp. ;)
