Weird Al Yankovic

In addition to growing up and loving the song parodies of today’s birthday boy, Weird Al Yankovic, he goes down in G history as the first concert I ever attended.  The show was at Knott’s Scary Farm in California and Elvira was the opening act!  Wow!  Making the night even better, and this must have been a precursor of things to come for my concert life – I sat in the front row.  During Weird Al’s performance of “Like A Surgeon,” his parody of Madonna’s “Like A Virgin,” he writhed around on the floor right at my feet.  It was at that very moment that I decided I would be in the front row as often as possible.

Also born today: Soccer great Pele and former talk show host Johnny Carson.
