    RIP Slim....:sadbye2:

    MIAMI (AP) — Country singer Slim Whitman, the high-pitched yodeler who sold millions of records through ever-present TV ads in the 1980s and 1990s and whose song saved the world in the film comedy "Mars Attacks!," died Wednesday at a Florida hospital. He was 90.
    Whitman died of heart failure at Orange Park Medical Center, his son-in-law Roy Beagle said.
    Whitman's tenor falsetto and ebony mustache and sideburns became global trademarks — and an inspiration for countless jokes — thanks to the TV commercials that pitched his records.

    No shit! I thought this thread was gonna be farcical.... He did have a remarkable vocal range, but his music is totally bizarre.....And he must have used a mortician for his makeup stylist :wtf:

    Probably not, but the pre-famous Beatles used to cover 2 of his songs, I Remember You, and Red Sails in the Sunset. :pimp: :hat:

    This is true? I honestly thought he died years ago.

    Always loved that commercial. I used to try to sing along with it.

    Him and Roy Orbison. :rip:
