190: Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips

I've never really believed that Wayne Coyne is the crazy musical Willy Wonka that some people make him out to be. Sure, he makes weird art and dances in the street at the intersection of music and commerce, but I've always felt like he was just a down-to-earth guy who also happened to have the balls to run his freak flag up the pole and salute it proudly. And after my conversation with him, I'm more convinced of that fact.
