Marc Cohn Shot

--Poor Taste Warning--

"Walking in Memphis" singer shot "driving in Denver."

In an apparent outburst over seeing the famous walking musician driving -- and driving in a city other than Memphis, no less -- a man tried to jack Marc Cohn's rented van and then shot him in the head.

Miraculously, Cohn's doctors removed the bullet from his temple and he is said to be recovering with his attractive news anchor wife at his bedside.

Just goes to show, when you contradict the lyrics of your own hit song, you're going to get it.

This incident serves as a warning to such artists as Tom Petty, Jackson Browne and of course Will Smith. They could be in danger's way should they be found by the wrong fan to be: paying for skydiving, driving with a full tank of gas, or generally not jiggy wit it, respectively.
