Reviews
"One of the 10 books to read this month [November, 2022]. Longtime drummer and band archivist Jon 'Bermuda' Schwartz is back with a color counterpart to Black & White & Weird All Over, having whittled down the thousands of 35mm images he took over 25 years. Chapters, organized chronologically by album and tour, open with short contextualizing intros peppered with behind-the-scenes memories (the one touring rule: 'no number two' allowed on the bus!), followed by images of Al on tour, on set, on stage, backstage, and just generally hamming it up. As the pages turn, you see Al and the band grow into a national sensation." - The A.V. Club"Holiday Gift Guide selection / 2022. More than 300 color photos represent 25 years of touring, filming, and recording with Alfred Matthew Yankovic, aka Weird Al, taken by [Jon "Bermuda"] Schwartz, his longtime drummer. This is a treat for fans." - Publishers Weekly"An entertaining pictorial tribute to a one-of-a-kind musician by someone who knows him better than most [Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz]. It's also proof that the weirdness doesn't stop as soon as Weird Al leaves the stage." - Mental Floss"There are shots of Al in the studio. Eating pizza. Having fun with his friends. Recording the 'Amish Paradise' video. Performing 'Like a Surgeon.' When I first saw it, I thought 'Wow. He looks like he's having fun with his life.' And because I know him just well enough to write the foreword to this book for free, I can tell you that he's always like that. He IS the greatest." - comedian Drew Carey
"Jon 'Bermuda' Schwartz has been at Weird Al's side from the beginning and when not holding drumsticks has been holding a camera. Jon's hobby and Al's exercise in tolerance are now our joy." - comedian, UHF co-star (and current tour opener) Emo Philips
