In addition to being an aging groupie, I have become a wisdom seeker. What can I learn about growing old from the icons of my youth? At 13, I finagled my way into Elvis Presley's hotel room, which brought me a serious scolding from my parents, and the thrill of having my first-ever boy-girl kiss bestowed on me by The King, himself.

In his book Andy Williams "Moon River and Me" relates how he bought an Elvis Presley Album and listened to it over and over again to get the feel of the style so that he could record "Butterfly" as a pop song of the time.

Andy had many beautiful hits

Love Story
Moon River
Can't Take My Eyes Off You
A Time For Us (Theme Romeo & Juliet)
Speak Softly Love (Theme of The Godfather) with the spectacular last notes

His voice is so incredible, he could hold his breath until 18 seconds

Andy is a terrific singer and role model in an industry that desperately needs one...often not getting the credit for his wonderful talent via the radio over the years.
In his prime, he could hold notes and phrases with such control....take a listen to "Maria" on his Moon River album ...the last word he holds for almost 30 seconds...WOW --- and with such a smoothe sound.
I've been a fan for years....have seen him in person about 15 times in various venues (including Vegas and Branson)over the years...he just never disappoints...Thanks, Andy for all of the great memories so far....many still to come, I know.

I was wondering if he still has his" Moon River" theater in Branson? It is beautiful one of the nicest there. Haven't been there in a while.

Yes, Andy still has his Moon River Theater. He was there Friday night. He told the audience he has bladder cancer but he is going to beat this and will be back next year. His theater will remain open and lots of entertainer friends will step up to help him keep the theater open during this serious time.
