All this time I was like, "Who is Shirley Appleby" when I'd listen to Trippin Down the Freeway.  All the lyrics online say Shirley, I remember a lot of people thinking that it was just some made up name... I think even Rivers said something that alluded to that being the case.  But then I found this person.

Was this supposed to be who Rivers was referencing, SHIRI Appleby?  Does anyone know if that's the actual lyric?

i dont think hes on crack. just a mild sedative.

 

i forget parts of the story, but i believe Rivers made the name up (with "shirley") and then was surprised that it matched a real person - Shiri - that actress. Possibly Brian pointed out the similarity or something. i probably have some of this wrong.
