LINK: Day drinking at Houdini's grave

Want to listen in on a rock band's conversation while drinking wine on Houdini's grave? Click the headline above and read this interview by Mischa Pearlman at NOISY.

"I find it fascinating," says Bradley, "that this is not his real name. It's his character name that became him. He wants to be known as Harry Houdini. He wants to be known as somebody completely different that he's created, that isn't his real name. And is that supposed to be his mother? Look it up!"

I like hearing people who might not know all that much about Houdini talk about him. What stories have broken through? We can also add Dads to the surprisingly large group of rock musicians who feel a mysterious connection to Houdini.
