Chris Butler (born May 22, 1949) is an American musician who led the experimental new wave 1980s band The Waitresses (PolyGram). Butler grew up in the U.S. state of Ohio and majored in sociology at Kent State University. He was among a crowd of students fired on by the Ohio National Guard on May 4, 1970. Butler''s biggest project to date is The Waitresses and he penned all of the band''s songs, including "I Know What Boys Like", "No Guilt", "Christmas Wrapping", "I Could Rule the World, If I Could Only Get the Parts", and the theme song for the TV sitcom Square Pegs. He holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest pop song recording in history, a 69-minute song entitled The Devil Glitch. The project has now been expanded online as "The Major Glitch", which is accepting additions to the song in the hopes that eventually it will play for days. In 1987, Butler sold his musical gear, including "Bebe Blue", the Vox Teardrop electric guitar he used to record "Christmas Wrapping," to a Manhattan music store. Over twenty years later the store owners told him that the guitar''s latest owner, a woman in Belgium, wanted to sell it to someone who could appreciate its significance. Butler hopped on a plane and repurchased it, though he could not convince himself that the guitar was in fact the one he owned before.
