Also, some kids I knew in the first half of high school had a public access wrestling show; they were failures at life.

I guess this thread is as good as any. In about 2003 I saw a couple of late-night episodes on a NYC or Long Island public access channel of a show I think was called "Plastic Soul" starring a band of the same name. The band was lead by a dour looking guitar player/vocalist dressed like John Lennon/Joshua Tree-era U2 with wide-brimmed hat, black duster, etc. He played a strat which may have been a righty played lefty like Hendrix, but I may be making this bit up. My recollection was they played nearly all if not all Beatles covers. The leader would take these ridiculous over the top EVH guitar solos that lasted for minutes and seemed very incongruous with the rest of the song. The band seemed like they took the entire endeavor very, very seriously, which made the whole thing hilarious (it was probably after midnight and I was drunk).
I have never been able to find any information about this show band since there are a million Beatles cover bands called Plastic Soul. Any help or confirmation I was not hallucinating would be appreciated.
