Full Paul Anka Rant

The video linked below was just sort of the highlights, edited together.

Some of the stuff he says it's hard to understand the first... um, 20 times listening to it. So in the video reenactment, they cut that stuff.

Here's the full version. Kind of a Revolution No. 9 of profanity, and integrity.

This is the original audio, which is much, much better quality than the YouTube version, but you can't pause it or go back and forth.

If you're having problems following the context, this will help:

He doesn't like the band not coming in costumey, dressy shirts, but instead coming on stage with t-shirts.

Anka is mad about the band not coming to their "cut-offs" on cue, on various songs, like My Way (he wrote it) and I'm Not Anyone. They're supposed to cut-off when he raises his arms before a bow. But they're sloppy and not doing it when he signals.

Vinny Falcone is obviously a scary, hard-ass conductor. "Man of Substance" actually gave me a real Vinny Falcone business card, long ago. (Wait-- actually, he gave me CJ Powell's card, mentioned near the end.)

Full Transcript: Yeah, we were a little obsessive about this. Geoff just finished it.

I tried to do this one time and gave up.

The end of the tape is some of the best stuff, really. It's all firing threats and talk of "integrity," "substance," and "conscious" (sic).
