David Lynch, Peter Wolf: college roommates?

According to Mental Floss, Peter Wolf, lead singer of the J. Geils Band and film director David Lynch (Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks) were roommates at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.


That is, until Lynch kicked Wolf out of the apartment for being “too weird.”

Yes, the man who directed Eraserhead thought someone else was too weird. Too much of Peter always looking through a girlie magazine, at his homeroom angel on the pages in between?

  1. I knew that story-funny! Makes me wonder what Peter Wolf was doing to make Lynch think he was weird.

  2. Wow! I saw David Lynch talk about this on Letterman a few years ago… I can’t imagine what you’d have to do for DL to find you weird because Eraserhead is consistently one of the most unsettling experiences I’ve ever had.
