The Rock Bottom Remainders

What do Mitch Albom, Dave Barry, Roy Blount Jr., Greg Isles, Kathi Kamen Goldmark, Stephen King, Matt Groening, James McBride, Amy Tan, Ridley Pearson, and Soctt Turow have in common? Apparently they're all members of a "band" called The Rock Bottom Remainders. I haven't heard of them until now. They are touring to raise money for Haiti relief, and the Pearson Foundation and We Give Books will be donating books in the tour cities (DC, Philadelphia, Boston, and New York). Apparently, they have little in the way of musical talent, but I can see how they'd attract a crowd. Too bad it's so contained in the northeast part of the country.
