Personal Quote:

I think that The Simpsons (1989) is probably the funniest show in the history of television. Alf Clausen does a great job in a difficult situation. If I live long enough and they stay on the air they'll make fun of me some day. See more »


At 2:26 in his music video for "I Love L.A." when he sings "look at that mountain" it shows the Matterhorn at Disneyland with a monorail train passing by. He later wrote and performed many songs for Pixar which is owned by the Disney company. See more »
