Jill Sobule on opening for people:

I say you can always tell a person by how they treat waitresses and opening acts. I have been one or the other for most of my life. Once, I served a cocktail to Madonna and did not receive a tip. I just thought I would mention it. I have opened up for Warren Zevon, Paul Weller, Joe Jackson, and Don Henley, all rumored to be at times assholes. I only have great things to say about them, especially Warren, who let me eat his food and watch soft porn in the back lounge of the bus with him. During my set, he would come up and sing " I Kissed a Girl" in his pirate-like voice.
