Tim Heidecker Is Coming to Tucson, Is Probably Not the Editor of Rolling Stone

Posted By on Tue, Dec 4, 2012 at 1:00 PM


Tim Heidecker, of Adult Swim's Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! fame as well as the new film The Comedy (opening at the Loft this Friday), is clearly a talented, albeit strange, guy. He's also scheduled to perform at Club Congress on Saturday night with Neil Hamburger. However, if his online presence is to be believed, he might be too busy to get to Tucson, considering he's telling the world that he took over as editor-in-chief of Rolling Stone today.

Among the changes, Heidecker is considering in his seemingly imaginary new role, according to his Tumblr page:

- I’d like to slightly revise our rating system for music - I believe we should add a star so there is the potential for a six star review (perhaps only as a nod the the “six string” guitar)

- would like to introduce cartoons in the style of the New Yorker but with rock themes.

- return focus to the bands and artists that helped build Rolling Stone into the Icon that it is, with celebratory stories, covers and features on Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Eagles, Rolling Sones, The Beatles, Zeppelin, etc…

The delusion/elaborate prank continues on Twitter and possibly on stage Saturday. Who knows?

If you'd like a preview of Heidecker's comedy stylings, here's the first episode of new series "On Cinema, At the Cinema," with co-host Gregg Turkington (who is definitely not the same person as Neil Hamburger). Note: if you're a Michael Keaton fan, this will be of particular interest:
