Slim Whitman on LATE NIGHT ( David Letterman )
Slim Whitman performing on LATE NIGHT ( David Letterman )
I did NOT know that Slim Whitman had passed away ( January 20, 1923 – June 19, 2013 ).
The MASS-MEDIA has ignored the deaths of far too many creative folks that we grew up with.
They also ignored Kevin McCarthy's death ( INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, THE MISFITS, and countless other movies and tv shows ).
Most of the ass-kissing morons in the mass-media would rather focus on useless shmucks, like Paris Hilton, the Kardashians, and arrogant-inbred-parasites ( aka royalty ).
Slim Whitman music cds
FYI: His music was used in movies, and he also appeared in a flick called JAMBOREE.
JAMBOREE was released on region one DVD by WARNER BROS.
I remember listening to some of his songs during a childhood cross-country trip in 1969.
Music by Slim Whitman, Johnny Cash, Roger Miller, Buck Owens, the INCREDIBLE Roy Clark, and many others, filled the air of countless motels, diners, and gas stations. That music had a very calming effect on me.
Let me remind all of you, that after you hit a certain age, the years fly by faster than you could ever imagine. It feels good to hold on to some comforting memories.
If there's a heaven, I hope Mr. Whitman is there, doing whatever makes him happy... Adios amigo.....
