Slim Whitman, RIP
The man who sold more records in England than Elvis and the Beatles and whose music stopped a martian invasion is dead at the age of 90.

How will we stop the martians now?

RIP Slim.

R.I.P. sir

(first time I heard of Slim was in a Robin Williams joke, on the DVD "An Evening with Robin Williams", )

I remember those commercials from when I was a kid. I thought he was an old man then.

RIP, Slim.

Maybe over-exposure selling records on TV made the butt of jokes, but his voice was really something. Not many men can manage those falsetto transitions so smoothly, and his yodeling was effortless and fluid. He didn't sell all those records for nothing! RIP.
