Longtime Howard Stern Show regular Richard Christy tells it like it is. He’s a guy that goes after it. Christy recently wrote a post about the chance he got to jam on stage with his favorite band of all-time — Coheed and Cambria. The story is filled with Christy’s thrash-metal-take-no-prisoners energy, because of course the night he got the Coheed invite was the night before he was due to run the Brooklyn Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. So Christie just jammed with the band anyway (chance of a lifetime, you know) and banged out the half marathon on a couple hours sleep. Nothing to it.
Guys like Christy (and there aren’t many) don’t like to miss out. That’s why he wears diapers to concerts (a more common practice than you’d think). Diapered up, you don’t have to waste time and opportunity hitting the restroom mid-show. (The intense attitude makes sense for Christy: most guys hear who Alex Van Halen play the drums don’t immediately think that’s great, but I want to go faster — and make their way to Dave Lombardo and Pete Sandoval.) Christy truly pissed himself to earn his glorious moment on stage with Coheed. As he wrote: “I’ve become friends with the band… and I have been through more than a few diapers at their shows (something I wear so that I don’t have to use the restroom and miss any songs, since all of their songs rule!).” Rock on.
