Josh Freese

To me, Josh Freese (second from left) was always the "Joe Besser" of Devo. Like the reviled third Stooge, Freese is too closely associated with the band's less-than Wonder Years (specifically, their brief post-Warners run on the Enigma label) as the replacement drummer for Alan Myers.

He may be more famous as a member of Nine Inch Nails.

Freese is still active in the music industry - and has released a new album called Since 1972. To promote the record, he is also offereing a menu of outrageous package deals that can be viewed here.

For $75,000, Josh will write a 5-song EP about you and your life story. If that's too expensive, why not hang out with Josh and a member of Devo (subject to availability) at the Hollywood Wax Museum, followed by lunch at a strip club? (That's only $2,500).

The "package deals" are very funny, so check them out.
