the man in the yellow shirt
so the wiggles are losing their front man. greg page, aka the man in the yellow shirt, has a condition in which he gets dizzy and lethargic from too much jumping around.

the new york times reports:
"...when Greg Page, 34, the band’s lead singer since its
inception 15 years ago, announced on Thursday that he was resigning after
being diagnosed with a serious illness that leaves him frequently
lightheaded and unable to dance and leap to the group’s most energetic hits,
it was the equivalent of
John Lennon or Paul McCartney quitting the Beatles."

um, no. not really. but whatever. the times went on to say:

"That comparison is not so far-fetched considering Mr. Page’s high visibility
within the band, which estimates it has sold more than 15 million DVDs and CDs
in the United States alone in less than a decade..."

that's an impressive sales number by any standard. but the comparison is still far-fetched.

the band has already introduced greg page's replacement, operatically trained sam moran. what, no reality tv show to search for a replacement?

I, too am deeply saddened by the man in the yellow shirt leaving the wiggles. I think I love the wiggles more than my son. ha ha
