The passing of singer Eddie Fisher at age 82 reminds me of another era, when the singers were clean-shaven and had that “boy next door” look.

Fisher was right up there with the likes of Perry Como, Guy Mitchell, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Frankie Laine and Jerry Vale. He had an amazing string of hit tunes, including “Lady of Spain,” “I’m Walking Behind You,” “You Gotta Have Heart,” “I Need You Now” and “Oh! My Pa-Pa” to name a few. His tragic personal life aside (failed marriages to Liz Taylor, Debbie Reynolds and Connie Stevens), Fisher had that innate quality that attracted fans of all ages and that, in my book, counts for something.
