Yankovic got started with the accordion after a door-to-door
salesman offered his parents a choice between accordion
lessons or guitar lessons.

Since his first-aired comedy song in 1976, he has sold more
than 12 million albums (as of 2007), recorded more than 150
parody and original songs. His works have earned him three
Grammy Awards and a further 11 nominations, four gold
records
, and six platinum records.
