Bobby Pickett, RIP

Bobby Pickett, RIP

I just found out about this. It’d be impossible to count the number of times I’ve heard Monster Mash.

Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett, whose dead-on Boris Karloff impression propelled the Halloween anthem to the top of the charts in 1962, making him one of pop music’s most enduring one-hit wonders, has died of leukemia. He was 69.

Pickett, dubbed ‘The Guy Lombardo of Halloween,’ died Wednesday night at the West Los Angeles Veterans Hospital, said his longtime manager, Stuart Hersh.
