A Word on Richard's Birthday T-Shirt

The actual Please Kill Me T-shirt was Richard Hell's idea, and he wanted me to de sign it, which I did for one show at Max's Kansas City. The trouble was that right after our show a couple of demented fans with very strange looks in their eyes, kind of like you get when you join a cult, came up to me and started talking to me. They started asking me about the T-shirt, and asking over and over again "do you mean it"? "Do you really mean it"? "Are you hoping that someone will take you up on it"? I have enough experience with deranged people to have had the sense to excuse myself. Later on I told Hell that I wasn't going to be wearing his T-shirt anymore. He was a little upset, and tried to coax me into continuing to wear it, but I wasn't having any of it. Richard sure had some great ideas, huh? But it makes a great title for the book, and a real pure statement about the musical scene back then.
