[GIVE ’EM HALL] Upon his April induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, before a roomful of past-due zombie rockers, the most brilliant satirist of the era let loose 1999’s “I’m Dead (But I Don’t Know It),” skewering those assembled dinosaurs with lines that can’t be argued with like, “Each record that I’m making/Is like a record that I’ve made/Just not as good.” But that rendering underscored the delicate artistic temperament balancing act Newman performs, to practice his scathing satire while remaining his affable self, as his gags visibly curdled on the smugly sneering lip of Don Henley—who’d joined Newman for the song as though being on the receiving end of the message would somehow render him immune to it.
