Andy Williams was an icon. He also did not like socialists and Mr. Obama, bless his heart. He could really sing, and he had common sense too..........He will be missed by those who remember him in his prime......All of you who disrespect him because of his political views are showing us who you are and what you are......useful idiots.......

ANDY WILLIAMS AND HIS GREAT TALENT, will never, never be duplicated, including, those who left us in recent months and years. Andy Williams was a "star" in the true sense of the word. Unlike many of today who scream their lungs out and pretend to be vocalists, just don't "have it." Sadly, our country has given in to those, in the singing world, who have no clue that with real talent comes pride, dignity and class, particularly, in public where personal behavior tells the story. Hopefully, now that Christmas is drawing near, the TV channels and radio stations will play the magnificent music of Andy Williams as a reminder of true talent. Sleep Well, Mr. Williams, Sleep Well.

I remember being in junior high in the early '70s, and when my mom would put Andy Williams on the turntable downstairs, I'd turn off my Stones upstairs and crack open my bedroom door, and listen...I had a reputation as a teenager to uphold, you know. =) Seriously, smooth and classy - RIP, Mr. Williams -
