David Shredder

I was listening to XM radio comedy on my way home from Fairfax today, and this fool came on who was just making jokes about how he was high all the time and one time was double fisting Klondike bars and watching basketball or something, not really, but it was pretty stupid. But then, he started telling a joke about playing baseball high, how he hit the ball, and then was like "Oh damn! Now I have to run!" Good one David, but then I swear on my life, he starts ripping off George Costanza's answering machine song.

The words are different he says, "Believe it or not, I'm running for home,..." I forget what he said but it honestly started out "Believe it or not" and the melody and rhythm were exactly the same. I've been searching for an MP3 of this, but all I could find was David Byron - Shred Master and Guitar Instructor. So that was pretty rad I guess, but here is some so-so evidence to prove I didn't completely fabricate this story. I wrote down his name and the name of the track, and looked it up when I got home, and it existed. Maybe this David Shredder came first, and Seinfeld ripped him off. I doubt that. At least George came out on top.

I got my "Inside the Dust Sleeve" and it's everything I've ever wished for. Some of the other vinyl I ordered better come soon, I'm starting to get worried.

what a veiled reference.

I'm not sure you're using that correctly Tommy. I would defer judgement to Dave though.

Sorry to burst your bubble but before you claim that he is ripping George off you might want to do your research. The music is from an actual song. To which David Shredder sings the actual lyrics.

here is a link to the song on youtube.
