Rest in Peace, Slim Whitman

From Florida comes word of the death from heart failure of Slim Whitman.

He died in Florida at the age of 90.

His style, heavy on the yodeling and falsetto, was the inspiration for jokes for years, especially because of his record offer ads on television. By the way, he sold tons of records that way.

But his career had begun in the 1940s, and a story carried by the Associated Press says he was an early influence for rock & roll and that he encouraged Elvis Presley when the future King of Rock & Roll was getting started.

I just hope he had that mustache and that slicked-back black hair and sideburns to the end.

Because somewhere in music heaven, there’s a new voice singing “O Rose Marieeee, I looooooove you.”
