** Possibly HarsherInHindsight: In the story, the record business has collapsed due to so many quality musicians leaving, causing record sales to plummet. This was published in 1993, prior to the debut of the World Wide Web and, later, the rise of [=Napster=] and [=iTunes=], which would cause the sales of actual [=CDs=] to plummet, not due to a significant change in what was popular, but because it was easier and cheaper.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Elvis suggesting that Frank Zappa "star in a sitcom." In 1990, Zappa's kids Dweezil and Moon Unit starred in a flop sitcom called ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098877/combined Normal Life]]'' which was supposed to show the wacky and off-the-wall life people imagined the Zappa kids had. Instead, with apparently nothing to rebel against, the kids turned out to be utterly ordinary and no one did anything particularly unusual. As a result, the show only lasted 13 episodes.
