Originally posted by the above linkOct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Robert Goulet, the singer whose rich baritone voice and classic tall, dark and handsome appearance made him a star on Broadway and television, has died. He was 73.
Goulet suffered from a rare form of pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive and fatal condition. He was being treated at Cedars- Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and was awaiting a lung transplant when he died today, the Associated Press reported, citing spokesman Norm Johnson.
I discovered him not so much for his singing, but his comedic potential in Naked Gun 2½, Beetlejuice, his portayal in The Simpsons and Will Ferrell's classic imitation. Damn.
