"Weird Al Yankovic, accordion-playing pop music parodist from Lynwood,
California, who got his big break at age sixteen in 1976 when he handed a
cassette of his polkaheavy comedy songs to LA deejay Dr. Demento.
It launched a career that’s led to twelve million albums sold, five Grammy
awards, and hit parodies that were sometimes more popular than the originals,
like “Eat It,” “Like A Surgeon,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” and “Amish Paradise.”
The New York Times
has called him “A completely ridiculous national treasure,
an absurd living legend.”"
