Product description

Review

As featured in Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, The A.V. Club, Nerdist, Ultimate Classic Rock, and more. "The satirical singer/songwriter 'Weird Al' Yankovic and his entourage goof up a storm in this album of behind-the-scenes photographs. The sense of exuberant creativity and fun that comes through in these photos will appeal to Yankovic's many fans."-Kirkus Reviews "The last several decades have been an amazing ride. More than once-an annoying number of times, actually-Jon has warned me, 'Someday I'm going to write a book about all this!' It became a bit of a running joke. But now he's actually made good on the threat. It's a fine snapshot-actually, several hundred snapshots-of what life was like for us in the '80s."-"Weird Al" Yankovic "Weird Al's drummer takes you into the studio, backstage, and offstage for the making of a superstar. Hey, I was there too-but Bermuda brought his camera!"-Dr. Demento "True to its name, this book features an almost entirely unseen trove of monochromatic photos taken by Schwartz - all capturing Al, his band and collaborators in the studio, on the road and in production of some of the funniest videos of MTV's golden age."-The Second Disc "Black & White & Weird All Over documents Yankovic's rise in comedy fame since the 1980s, capturing all the effort and fun behind his Grammy-winning music."-The Plain Dealer
