(CBS News) Singer Andy Williams died at his home in Branson, Mo., on Tuesday after a year-long battle with bladder cancer, according to his
publicist Paul Shefrin. He was 84.
I know he passed a few days ago. I didn't learn of it until now. Strangely enough I was watching an Andy clip on YT and saw the R.I.P posted in a
Mr. Williams gone... Wow. I'm tongue tied. What can I say? Other than for me? The world will never sound the same again. I'm fortunate my
Grandparents gave me an appreciation for classic music and I'm fortunate to have known 'Andy' - if only though his music.
It's sad there isn't a thread to wish him well already. So many of the GREATS are lost. And I'm not talking dead - I'm talking to time and changing
tastes and something else I don't even want to examine. Something like the loss of innocence and loss of a sense of good.
Peace to his friends and family worldwide - a small - but very fortunate group. I'm proud to be able to host this thread. Peace again. See ya on
the flip side Mr. Williams...
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Silo13.
He had such a smooth delivery, and seemed like a very pleasant human being (maybe the latter influenced the former - who knows?).
Best regards to his near & dear ones.
