    That's just embarassing. In the 50's people thought he would be as big as Elvis. Guess that didn't work out.

    Pity the poor guitarist, god forbid he started playing the guitar because he was a Deep Purple fan. He would have put his fingers in a blender if he only knew.

    I dunno. 'Ol Bob Barker seems like he's singing fairly well for his age. Hasn't aged a day since Happy Gilmore. Wait. Who the fuck is Pat Boone?

    Andy was a HUGE Slim Whitman fan. In this clip you can tell he is genuinely in awe of him.

    I'm a metal head. I bought this when it came out. It almost ruined Pat Boone's career. The church people didn't want to have anything to do with him anymore for a while after this.
