    For his Blowfly persona, he performs in a low-rent supervillain outfit.

    He was sued by ASCAP President Stanley Adams for turning the jazz standard 'What A Difference A Day Makes' into 'What A Difference A Lay Makes.'
    He is sort of a XXX-rated Weird Al.

    Label owner Bo Crane said, 'It's amazing how loyal his fans are.'
    His fans include members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sonic Youth and the Pixies.
    'Nobody But You Babe' was sampled by DMX and KRS-One.
