Very sorry to hear this but he was a right age and I didn't even know he was still alive after all these years.
As a child I liked his singing voice with songs like Rawhide and Moonlight Gambler. One of the few records I was able to buy in the 50s (expensive, and I had little pocket money) was one of Frankie Laine's
Like so many singers/actors/comedians etc that were in full flow when I was growing up, I now am seeing them, one by one, dying off. Makes me realize just how old I am getting and all the acts I enjoyed over the years that are now gone (except for film).
Tastes change and I can enjoy some of the new stuff but will always remember with pleasure the 'good' acts from (it seems now) long ago. I suppose I am a child of my time.
With every death, there is the sound of yet another door closing to direct knowledge of the entertainment of the past. Always sad.
