I just realized I've always mixed up Steely Dan and Steeleye Span. Then again, I don't know much about either except that they were 70s rock bands.

Steeleye Span was a folkish band whereas Steely Dan was R&B and jazz inflected. To help you out.

Sasha Frere-Jones and Sasha Baron-Cohen.

John Updike }{ John Irving

Nothing to do with their names, but I'm always stumbling and getting Cheever in my Updike. And vice versa.

I mean, what's the point of having two glam rock singers named "Stardust"? Which one of them came first?

Tuomas, Tuesday, 18 November 2008 10:25 (5 years ago) Permalink

The legendary Stardust Cowboy.

I don't get them confused, per se, but I always seem to forget that Jeff Bridges' name isn't "Jeff Daniels". It takes me a second before I think, "Oh, wait. Jeff Daniels is that other guy."

Yeah, that's good. I think there's another Ron in there too.

Or maybe I'm thinking of when Ron Silver plays himself in "Heat Vision and Jack."

other Rons: Ron Leibman and Ron Rifkin

Yeah, thanks rosemary, it was the first of those guys, the one who played "Kaz."

Ha, Ron Rifkin's imdb page says he is sometimes confused with Joel Grey.
