The Dandy Warhols
celebrate their jubilee year by dropping their appropriately-titled "Why You So Crazy" LP on January 25th. Has it really been a quarter of a century? Most of the songs from their vast catalog don't seem to have aged a day.

The guys generally get online to check out fishing gear, truck parts, and compound bows, etc., whereas more and more, the gals check out New York, Paris, Hollywood and the like. I changed the names for the song but when 'Rikki' finally did come back it was well over a year later. They are married now and have two kids."
