    I thought there might be some Weird Al fans who hadn't heard this yet.

    They lived good long lives and were so proud of their son. In cases like this (famous or unknown) I feel most sorry for the people left behind, such as that their granddaughter will never know her paternal grandparents.

    Oooops! Could a mod please fix the title? I meant "Weird Al's parents die of carbon monoxide poisoning.

    Sorry about that. Thanks.

    Sad indeed. [​IMG]

    I actually found out about this after catching the tail end of the story on the news ticker on E! while channel surfing late last night.

    From what I read on MSNBC today, Al went on with his scheduled concert in Minnesota yesterday, dedicating the show to his parents. [​IMG]

    Al has posted a touching message to his fans on his official Web site. A must read for everyone, wheter or not you're a fan of his.
