Another legend joined us, KING ERRISSON, best known for being Neil Diamond's percussionist for the past 40 years, but his lifetime of experiences are an endless saga of amazing tales, and a lot of them, funny as hell.
Outlaw welcomed the voice of Sesame Street's little green fella for 27 years. Steve Whitmire, the voice of Kermit the Frog was fired unceremoniously from Disney after 27 years!! The nasty content of his humor on Outlaw would lead you to believe that he was either fired for good reason or we weren't talking to the real Steve Whitmire. This is disturbing.
Whitmire says he was let go because he spoke up about changes being made to the character he felt were against what creator Jim Henson would have wanted. The Muppets Studio claims it was about how Whitmire conducted himself in the workplace.
