The Phile surprised Jim for this birthday!
Country legend Slim Whitman has passed away from heart failure at Orange Park Medical Center. Whitman was responsible for the song that saved the world; "When I'm Calling You" killed the martians in the mid-90's...in the cult classic 'Mars Attacks!'
The Phile (at least Jim and Casey the Intern) is very upset.
(CNN) -- Slim Whitman, the high-pitched yodeling county music singer whose productive career spanned decades, died Wednesday, his son-in-law told CNN. He was 90.
The singer-songwriter, born Ottis Dewey Whitman Jr., died of heart failure at Orange Park Medical Center in Florida, Roy Beagle said.
Whitman gained fame in Europe as well as the United States. "Love Song of the Waterfall," which a Country Music Television biography calls his "breakthrough" hit, was released in the early '50s.
His next single "Indian Love Call" brought him stardom, according to the bio.
"Whitman joined the Grand Ole Opry, and then went to Britain in 1956 as the first country singer to play the London Palladium. Throughout the late '50s and early '60s, he had a string of British hits, including 'Tumbling Tumbleweeds,' 'Unchain My Heart,' and 'I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen," the bio said.
