Description

Todd Snider is titling his next album after his alter ego’s band. Eastside Bulldog, due October 7th, finds the singer-songwriter telling tales of his identical twin/nemesis, Elmo Buzz, the hard-partying, Hank Williams Jr.-obsessed character he developed several years ago.┬áSnider came up with “Elmo” out of frustration over concert rules: “You can’t play anywhere within 75 miles of the place you just played in for 90 days prior to the show. . . and another 90 days after the show,” he explains of common concert promoters’ contract stipulations. “I am home about 100 nights a year. That’s 98 nights without music. Unacceptable. To work around this complicated botheration I came up with the name Elmo Buzz.” Snider came up with “Elmo” out of frustration over concert rules: “You can’t play anywhere within 75 miles of the place you just played in for 90 days prior to the show. . . and another 90 days after the show,” he explains of common concert promoters’ contract stipulations. “I am home about 100 nights a year.
