Anthony Bourdain and Penn Jillett Give Their Views on EDM

(Radio.com) World renowned foodie Anthony Bourdain is definitely a music guy. He's hobnobbed with rockers ranging from buddy Josh Homme and Queens of the Stone Age to a backyard BBQ at Austin's SXSW with Sleigh Bells. Bourdain, however, is not a fan of the beat-driven sound known as EDM.

During a trip to Las Vegas for the most recent episode of his CNN show Parts Unknown, Bourdain lamented the city's shift away from elaborate stage shows to DJs and bottle service in a conversation with magician Penn Jillett of Penn and Teller fame, who's also not into any of this newfangled dance business.

"We get invited to all the openings of the new clubs, but I simply don't understand it," Jillett groused. "And I'm embarrassed that I don't understand it."

"Are we just old?" Bourdain pondered. "Or are we non-douchey?"

Bourdain then launched into one of his signature poetic diatribes taking down the Vegas scene. Read that here.
