Pat O'Brien: Uh, hey, what's up
you guys, Death here.
Pat O'Brien: Um, I know guys are pissed at
me for taking Prince recently,
Pat O'Brien: and David Bowie,
Pat O'Brien: and you know,
Pat O'Brien: Lou Reed, and
Pat O'Brien: Michael Jackson,
Pat O'Brien: Biggie Smalls,
Pat O'Brien: Nina Simone,
Pat O'Brien: Tupac,
Pat O'Brien: I'm workin' on Joni Mitchell,
Pat O'Brien: but you know, I just wanted to
take a second to explain
Pat O'Brien: myself here, because actually
I have a very good reason
Pat O'Brien: for taking these people.
Pat O'Brien: And that reason is,
Pat O'Brien: I love music. Okay?
Pat O'Brien: Death loves music just as
much as the next guy.
Pat O'Brien: In fact, I consider myself a
pretty serious collector.
Pat O'Brien: But for me, unfortunately I
can't just run out to the
Pat O'Brien: record store, and you
know, buy vinyl, or
Pat O'Brien: download stuff on iTunes
or TIDAL or whatever, okay?
Pat O'Brien: I'm Death.
Pat O'Brien: So, the one thing I'm allowed
to do is claim lives, and
Pat O'Brien: bring them over to the other side,
Pat O'Brien: aka the After World.
Pat O'Brien: That's what Prince was
talking about in that song.
Pat O'Brien: You guys only get mad when
I take like the big pop star.
Pat O'Brien: You know, I'm into
other types of music:
Pat O'Brien: Classical, Jazz.
Pat O'Brien: Recently, I've been getting
into Brian Eno's ambient stuff.
Pat O'Brien: Ooh, I actually might
take him soon.
Pat O'Brien: It'd be great to get him
collaborating with Bowie again.
Pat O'Brien: Hey, maybe we'll end up with
another Berlin Trilogy.
Pat O'Brien: Well, not you guys, me.
Pat O'Brien: Oops. Sorry.
Pat O'Brien: ♪ I shot the sheriff ♪
Pat O'Brien: And, you know, it's not like
they're in a bad place or anything.
Pat O'Brien: So don't freak out about that.
Pat O'Brien: Musicians here have the time
of their lives, okay?
Pat O'Brien: They get to do all sorts of
cool collabs all the time.
Pat O'Brien: The other day I saw Mozart
and Bob Marley, just like, totally
Pat O'Brien: blazed out of their minds,
just jamming out.
Pat O'Brien: Jimi Hendrix, Eazy-E, and
Whitney Houston did a set together.
Pat O'Brien: Uh, oh, oh,
Pat O'Brien: last summer I saw a band that
was entirely comprised of like
Pat O'Brien: the sickest drummers.
Pat O'Brien: It was like Keith Moon,
Tito Puente, John Bonham,
Pat O'Brien: Desi Arnaz, Dave Grohl.
Pat O'Brien: I know Dave Grohl's not
dead, but you know,
Pat O'Brien: he always shows up some how.
Pat O'Brien: Dude loves a super
group. What can I say?
