Randy Newman, songwriter

Randall Stuart “Randy” Newman (born November 28, 1943) is an Academy Award–winning American songwriter, arranger, composer, singer and pianist who is notable for his mordant (and often satirical) pop songs and for his many film scores. Newman was born in Los Angeles, California. As an infant, Newman moved with his family to New Orleans, Louisiana. He lived in New Orleans as a small child and spent summers there until he was eleven years old, when he returned to Los Angeles. The paternal side of his family includes three uncles who were noted Hollywood film-score composers: Alfred Newman, Lionel Newman and Emil Newman. Newman's cousins Thomas and David, and nephew Joey are also composers for motion pictures. Graduated from University High, Los Angeles. Newman attended the University of California, Los Angeles.

A bit of Randy Newman trivia: His uncles were Oscar winning composers who shared credits on quite a few movies. Publisher William Gaines was trying to come up with a name for a goofy character that would be featured in his fledgling MAD magazine. While watching some movie credits, he saw the names Alfred and Elon Newman. A light went off in his head and the character Alfred E Newman was born.
