Rock Bottom Remainders

From today's Bleat by James Lileks:
But thanks to the indispensable Gawker, I know what “rich” really is. It’s Stephen King standing in line to see “28 Days Later,” and buying all the tickets and giving them to everyone standing behind him in line. I love that story. He surfaces in public rarely, but whenever he does you think: what a guy. Dave Barry’s the same way, incidentally. If Dave Barry woke up and found seventy billion dollars in his back yard, he would buy an Oscar Meyer Weinermobile and spend the rest of his life driving state highways and handing out hundred dollar bills in small-town restaurants.
King and Barry are allegedly in what's allegedly a "rock band" allegedly called the Rock Bottom Remainders. (Like Dave Barry needs links from me.)
