Buster Poindexter wasn't the band leader for Saturday Night Live (you may be
thinking of G.E. Smith, another weird looking dude), but he did do the
ubiquitous "Hot, Hot, Hot".

This about sums it up...

As I said, he was the opening act for The Who at the Worcester Centrum in
1982.  I remember he played some Animals songs.  At the time I thought he
was a former member of the Animals.  He later "became" Buster Poindexter,
who I seem to remember being the band leader on Saturday Night Live for a
while (is that right?).

If he's the opening act, the good news time in the bar?
