Whose fucking phone is on?

We're going to just touch you up.

- Okay, Mr. Dorchen?

- Hey.

Do I need nipple rouge?

Can we get... I don't...

Do I need any nipple rouge?

Yeah. Touch up his nipples, please.

What kind of brush is that?

Is that rabbit fur?

Lou Dorchen, the legendary lead singer

of metal supergroup Motley Lue,

who burst onto the world stage

out of nowhere

to become the very definition

of a rock god.

Livin' the dream with

high school sweetheart Kelly Dorchen.

So how did the ultimate party

animal get the inspiration

to build the most innovative,


tech company in the world?

I don't have to tell you where I got

my inspiration from, first of all.

Because that's called

"intellectual property"

and I can copyright that shit.

Just like I copyrighted the word "well,"

so you can't even say "well"

without paying me money.

- Well...

- You owe me money.

Lou Dorchen's best friend is yet another

American success story,

music mogul Nick Webber.

Ever since I wrote Let's Get It Started

back in '86,

I've been on a roll.

MMMBop, triple platinum.

A lot of stations still playin'

Gin and Juicey Juice.

You Oughta Know.

Feelin' Like Teen Spirit.

I guess you could say

I take from a lot of artists.

Take my inspiration

from a lot of artists.

I don't...

I don't take their stuff.

That's... Who would do that?

- Yeah. Ask me anything.

- Okay.

How's your relationship

with your father?

I don't want to talk about that.

Still struggling to find his own place

in the world,

Jacob Dorchen comments on his

father's game-changing innovation.

He didn't invent Goo... Lougle.

He couldn't invent his way

out of a fucking paper bag.

And that's...

That's not a turn of phrase,

that's anecdotal evidence.

He got caught in a giant paper

bag a couple weeks ago.

Adam... Adam Yates.

Yes, he rounds out

our Three Musketeerposse.

He made it real big

with his bestselling novel,

Jacuzzi Timelord.

But Adam,

he's off on an experiential journey.

I got a feeling we'll see him again.

I got a feeling.

Just came to me.

One fateful ski trip in 1986

seemed to kick-start

their lives into high gear.

But what was it like to grow up

alongside these future stars?

We turned to high school pal,

Gary Winkle.

I bet you guys didn't know that I was

supposed to go on that trip, huh?

I stood outside all day,

but they never showed. Left me hanging.

You know what I got that weekend?

Chlamydia from the batting cages.

My best buddies go up

the mountain as regular Joes.

Come down fucking rich.

I mean, how did that happen?

I mean, at the end of the day,

I'm just a simple guy like you

who had a couple of great ideas

that happen to make him

a bunch of money. That's it.

I mean, how was I supposed to know

that it would change the fabric

of our existence? I couldn't.

You know, I couldn't,

unless I had some sort of...

Cut! Let's reset. Do it again.

One word, Nick. Fucking amazing...

Don't f*ck with my groove, Terry.

- Hey, Nick.

- Youngblood.

Rip off any pop stars lately?

For your information,

today I recorded an original piece.


Okay, it was that Lisa Loeb song.

Well, as much of it as I could remember.

The lyrics I made up were original.

Listen, Nick, I get it.

You don't have any natural talent.

All I know is that hot tub

made me a king.

It's my duty to live up to the throne.

All right, I can't see you right now,

but I'm gonna assume you're putting

"king" and "throne" in quotes.

What do you want?

Hey, Nick, I'm sorry.

I'm not trying to be a dick.

Are you coming to Lou's party?
