Description - America's Polka King by Bob Dolgan

For half a century Frank Yankovic wowed polka fans around the globe with hits such as ?Just Because? and ?The Blue Skirt Waltz.? He traveled the country, sold millions of records, and won the first Polka Grammy. The Cleveland native found fame and fortune beyond his wildest dreams. But behind the happy sounds of the accordion stood a man obsessed with trying to please himself and the ones he loved. With a tumultuous touring schedule that consisted of 200 shows a year, a restless temper and three failed marriages, Yankovic found himself being distanced from reality. Author Bob Dolgan delves into the life of America's Polka king and tells the tale of not only a musician, but of a man struggling for happiness.
