Michael Brockley played air guitar for Warren Zevon on “Excitable Boy” and “Werewolves of London” and fantasy sax with the E Street Band on “Badlands” and “Born to Run.” He also was the first cowbell alternate for “Honky Tonk Women.” Many bootlegs of “Honky Tonk Women” include outtakes of Brockley dropping a cowbell. He turned to poetry when the recording sessions for his kazoo covers CD ended due to cost overruns. Brockley currently lives in Muncie, Indiana, with a dog named “Jokerman” and the ghosts of five German shepherds.
