    Father of singers Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright
    His only top 40 hit, 'Dead Skunk,' was a novelty song about roadkill.
    He recorded a song complaining that he could not get a hit in the video era, apparently having forgotten that he wasn't burning up the charts pre-MTV.
    He ran off to Europe with another woman while his wife was pregnant with Rufus.
    He has a strained relationship with his children.
    Their squabbles prompted one reviewer to call the Wainwrights 'a kind of Osbourne family for roots music fans.'
    He inspired several of his kids' songs (albeit, usually bitter ones).
    Rufus and Martha have both covered his songs.
    He composed topical songs for NPR and Nightline.
    He composed the soundtrack for the movie 'Knocked Up (2007).'
