The Lost Boys "Sax Man" Appreciation Thread

Just caught a theatrical screening of "The Lost Boys" this Friday and got to witness one of, if not the greatest scene stealer in the history of cinema on the big screen, The Sax Man. If anyone mentions the movie, I can't but help of this truly absurd and hilarious appearance first.



Sax Man is in fact so epic, Jon Hamm and SNL paid tribute to him recently in a very memorable sketch.

Why is it that every time when I'm at home sicker than a dog someone has to post some funny shit like this?? It hurts when I laugh now.

For the longest time, I thought I was the only one who appreciated the ignorance and awesomeness of the sax man.

Not sure if it is the same actor, but the sax player also pops up in Lost Boys: The Tribe

Re: The Lost Boys "Sax Man" Appreciation Thread

I love that scene, one of my favorites. Between the song itself, a body builder playing the sax, those two guys headbanging in tandem, Cory Haim's outfit. Just an incredible, epic scene. Check out this "remix":

The craziest part of it all, is Sax Man is a real sax player. He actually wrote the song he's playing and pops up in two Tina Turner videos for Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, dressed as, you guessed it, Sax Man.

I love that this thread exists.

SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGIIIIIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

The Eastbound reference was amazing too. I lol'd at that but not as hard as this week when they ingeniously utilized Hulk Hogan's theme song.

Tim Capello is the shit! That scene is so bizarre and hilarious that I can't help but love it.

The "sax man" toured with Tina Turner.He was with her when I saw Tina in Bonner Springs KS,back in '93.I remember one woman in the audience nearly creamed her jeans over him.

I told a story in one of my one man shows about how my dad always talks about how talented Tim Capello is, everytime Lost Boys is on:
www.youtube.com/user/lastdaysofrain
It's in Part II of my "Very Special Episode" show.

If you are a fan of Tim "Sax Man" Capello you may enjoy it

Are you saying that he wrote the song that he's performing in THE LOST BOYS? If so, you're wrong. The song was originally recorded by The Call and written by members Michael Been and Jim Goodwin.

The Sax Man is a legend and its good to see that other people recognize this. Over the years me and my friends have never been able to watch the Lost Boys without rolling around laughing at his Sax antics in that scene. The hair, the clothes, his general oiliness or sweatiness and grinding rythmn are just comedy gold.

When Kenny Powers made that reference, I fell out of my chair laughing.
