Singer Frankie Laine Dead at 93
Singer Frankie Laine has died of a heart attack following hip replacement surgery in California. He was 93.
"Years before Elvis Presley, Laine brought a potent blend of blues, jazz and country to popular music," jazz critic Don Heckman said. "Rarely acknowledged in Laine's work, he sang with the easy, loose phrasing and imaginative articulation of jazz performers."
