Elfman fans discuss his current and past work in the usenet group rec.music.artists.danny-elfman.


His older brother is director Richard Elfman.


Did not return to provide the musical score for Spider-Man 3 (2007), citing creative differences with director Sam Raimi over the previous film. He instead, provided the score for Charlotte's Web (2006), which ironically is about a spider who uses her talents to do good.


Son-in-law of Peter Fonda and Susan Brewer.


Received an honorary doctorate from the North Carolina School of the Arts (June 2007).


Brother-in-law of Justin Fonda.


He and Howard Shore have both formed hit bands (Oingo Boingo and The Blues Brothers), both scored films for Peter Jackson (The Frighteners (1996) and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) and others), both scored films for Tim Burton (Elfman has scored everything but Ed Wood (1994), which Shore scored), and both scored a Hannibal Lecter film (Red Dragon (2002) and The Silence of the Lambs (1991)).


Son Oliver Elfman was born mid January 2005


Learned how to breathe fire as a street performer in Paris after he graduated from high school.


Often composes scores for Tim Burton's films


Father of Mali Elfman.


Wrote the score for Black Beauty (1994) for his two daughters from a collapsed marriage. Released a solo album in 1984, So-Lo, which happened to feature most of the band members from Oingo Boingo.


Uncle of Bodhi Elfman


It is sometimes believed that Elfman may have been born in Amarillo, Texas, but that is, apparently, due to a joke that he once made. He was actually born in Los Angeles County, California.


Admires Peter Lorre.
