Probably many people who come around to this blog doesn’t know who this guy is, I am a huge fan of this kinda music. Eddie Fisher passed away at 82 on wednesday, some great songs was sung by him like "Thinking of you", "Oh my papa" etc but also it seems he was a proper chic magnet as well, married to Debbie Reynolds (2 kids, one of whom is the Princess Leia herself), Liz Taylor and Connie Stevens.
