Bandleader
    (December 14, 1911-May 1, 1965)
    Birth name was Lindley Armstrong Jones
    Leader of Spike Jones and his City Slickers
    Albums include 'The Nutcracker Suite (1945),' 'How the Circus Learned to Smile (1949),' 'Spike Jones Murders Carmen (1953),' 'Dinner Music for People Who Aren't Very Hungry (1956),' 'A Christmas Spectacular (1956),' 'Spooktacular in Screaming Sound (1959),' 'Omnibust (1960)' and 'Rides, Rapes and Rescues (1961)'

    His music was full of goofy sound effects (gargling, farting, etc.) and other schtick.
    He exploited dwarves and 'freaks' in his live shows.
    He took credit for other people's arrangements.
    He insisted his musicians make his band top priority, which many were unwilling to do.
    He thought rock music was just a fad.
