Andrew Dice Clay talks Vinyl: 'Record company guys were out of their f---ing minds!'
Comedian Andrew Dice Clay has had the kind of colorful, controversial, rollercoaster career that we do not really have the time to summarize here. Suffice it to say , he was the first standup to sell out Madison Square Garden, Saturday Night Live cast member Nora Dunn found his defiantly un-PC stage persona so repugnant she boycotted the episode he hosted back in 1990, and by the mid-aughts, Clay’s career had nosedived to such a degree that he seemed to have taken up permanent residence in pop culture’s garbage can of history. “I was going through a big divorce, I was going through the recession, just like everybody else,” he says. “Things were very lean for me.”
