"Weird Al" Yankovic needs your help.
Fans of the king of polka and parodies are running a global grassroots campaign to get him inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The fan-sponsored "Make the Rock Hall Weird" movement is asking Yankovic fans in Kentucky this week to send letters to the Hall of Fame Foundation in support of inducting their favorite accordion-playing pal.
Send letters to: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, Attn: Suzan Evans, 1290 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10104.
You can find out more about the campaign at www.dohtem.com/al.
In addition to lasting a quarter of a century in a notoriously cutthroat biz, the worthy Weird Al has won three Grammy Awards, and his name is synonymous with comedic rock.
So come on, show some love. It's OK--you can dare to be stupid.
