It was only when reading his obit that I discovered he was a singer. I honestly thought he was famous for just being in the sausage business.

His story/song "Big Bad John" was pretty huge in the early 60s, and it was the subject of endless parodies and a TV movie. It's even been covered by Johnny Cash.

People my age remember the song, and his numerous tv shows but mostly kids in the 1960s remember him as Daniel Boone's sidekick on that tv show.
