There I was, sitting down across from Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh, Gerald and Bob Casale, and Alan Meyers. The topic of our discussion was “de-evolution” and the state of music today. And then, I asked them a question that has been nagging me ever since I first slapped Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo on a turntable: What is this fascination with potatoes?

However, before Mark and the other Spuds could answer, I woke up.

I guess it was only fitting that I dreamed about Devo. After all, it was thirty years ago today when I saw them in concert. There have been a lot of bands that I wished I could have seen over the years. I’m grateful that I could experience Devo in concert.

As for the fascination with potatoes, I guess I will just have to wait for the answer.

In the meantime, time for some Devo action on my iPod today.
