Spike Jones

I’ve heard of this musician named Spike Jones, not the one spelled Jonez, any guy from the 40’s, 50’s & 60’s. Who is he exactly. What I found out was – Spike Jones was great musician that found out how to combine music with humor. He was a popular band leader that used strange instruments and unusual sounds to punctuate his music. A pistol shot or a sneeze would be any of these tricks. His band was call his “City Slickers”. See the Allmusic. Com link for a very long bio. Also try youtube to see him. The guy was brilliant.
