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.
Vic Chestnutt, 45, died after overdosing on muscle relaxants (artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com) today. Kristin Hersh broke the news of his OD and (then-)comatose state via her Twitter account (twitter.com), having played with him on tour.
