Scientists Scramble To Unfreeze Huey Lewis In Time For Mets Concert Series

This afternoon the New York Mets announced their summer concert series. While the news was met with little enthusiasm from the team's fans, the announcement of a Huey Lewis and the News concert did send shock waves through the scientific community. The reason being that, possibly unbeknownst to the Mets, Huey Lewis has been in cryogenic hypersleep since 1991.

Despite his early work being a little too "new wave" for most people's tastes, Huey Lewis captured a generation of fans in the 1980's with his clear, crisp sound and sheen of consummate professionalism, even drawing comparisons to Elvis Costello.  In 1987, he released "Hip to Be Square," a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself. But I digress.

In 1991, when the public grew tired of Huey, the decision was made to cryogenically freeze the rocker until he was needed again, presumably in the event of another Back To The Future sequel.

With the announcement of the July 12th concert, scientists have a little less than 9 months to unfreeze Lewis and get him ready for the show. I can only imagine how he's going to react when he finds out that he in fact DOES need a credit card to ride the train these days.
