Weird Al Yankovic: Achieving Massive Success by Leaning Into His True (Nerdy) Self

Alfred Matthew Yankovic, when he was six years old, was told by his parents to choose between accordion and guitar lessons. ?And my parents being the visionaries that they were said, ?Oh, young Alfred would love to play the accordion.?? Alfred, today better known as the chart-topping musician, satirist, and beloved nerd Weird Al Yankovic, tells Guy how that decision changed his life, and decades of popular music to come. They also discuss how Kurt Cobain saved Weird Al from a lifetime of spoofing Michael Jackson songs, and how intense the process of writing silly songs can be.

Graham Nash: Writing from Experience and Letting Your Heart Lead the Way

Graham Nash has made some of the most unforgettable music of the last century: songs like Marrakesh Express, Our House, and Just a Song Before I Go. And now, at the age of 80, he?s as creatively engaged as ever, still releasing new albums and roaming the streets of New York City in search of his next great photograph. He talks to Guy about where he continues to find inspiration, about the top-10 hit he wrote in 30 minutes, and about his famous--sometimes famously troubled--collaborations with David Crosby, Joni Mitchell, and others.

Sigourney Weaver: Conquering Self-Doubt and How to Harness Your Instincts

Sigourney Weaver has appeared in more than 60 films, from her breakout role in Alien in 1979 and the blockbuster Aliens in 1986, to Gorillas in the Mist and Working Girl, and later Avatar, with many sequels in the works. Despite being raised by a family steeped in show business, Sigourney was reluctant to pursue acting for many years. In our conversation, Sigourney unpacks what was behind that reticence; tells Guy about her early years in avant-garde theater; talks about why, at first, she wasn?t all that interested in being in Alien; and explains why she takes issue with the idea that she tends to play ?strong women.?
