Grown man really into 'Weird Al' Yankovic
A local 39-year-old grown adult is into accordionist and parody songwriter "Weird Al" Yankovic at levels that border on terrifying. Bobby Brisson of Knoxville is one of a handful of adult human beings who still know all the words to songs like "Addicted to Spuds" and "Girls Just Want to Have Lunch." "You expect this in an adolescent male whose voice hasn't quite finished changing," said music critic Paul Nix. "But by the time they hit 14, most young people generally discover girls and actual music. I'm not sure what happened in Bobby's case." "Man, he's really into it," said family friend Doogan Snelling. "I mean really into it. Knows all the words and sings them at the top of his lungs. Goes on road trips to concerts. You'd think it was The Beatles. It's hard to believe he's single."
