another RIP

How did I miss this? I've just learned that John Raitt, who had one of the sexiest voices ever, died on February 20.

Raitt introduced the role of Billy Bigelow in Carousel, and brought (in my opinion) deliciously naughty passion to the filmed version of The Pajama Game.

Words Written: zero
Lessons Graded: five

And of course, he sired Bonnie, who I always had a bit of a crush on...I am a sucker for red heads...just don't tell my wife.

Don't forget he originated the role of Sid Sorokin on Broadway too.

Pajama Game was my first musical.

Say hello to the Star Keeper for us, won't you John?
