@farmerman,
I remember when my wife and I went to the Preservation Hall, and sat on the floor in front. It was a small place with people packed like sardines. The music was unbelievable. We even had a meal at Commander's Palace and that other famous place that starts with a B. At 81, my memory is shot.

Bobby Vee, whose hits included the chart-topping ‘Take Good Care of My Baby,' died today (24 October). He was 73 years old and was in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's disease, according to his son, Jeff Velline. Vee was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2011, and performed his last show that same year.

Born Robert Thomas Velline in 1943 in Fargo, North Dakota into a musical family, he joined his older brother’s band when he was 15. After Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper were killed in the infamous plane crash of 1959, the promoter needed a band to fill in, when it was decided that the tour should continue. The next date was in Moorhead, Minnesota and the 15-year-old Bobby Vee and the Shadows got their big break.

By the autumn of 1959 Snuffy Garrett, a young staff producer at Liberty Records, had persuaded the label to sign Bobby Vee. After several of his singles flopped, a radio station in Pittsburgh started to play Vee’s version of an old Clovers R&B hit, ‘Devil or Angel.' Soon the single was top ten in cities all over America; it finished up at No.6 in the Billboard chart.

His next single ‘Rubber Ball,' co-written by Gene Pitney, also went to No.6 in the US and to No.4 in Britain in 1960. From then on, Vee could do no wrong on either side of the Atlantic. He had a string of hits including ‘More Than I Can Say’ (No.4 UK), ‘How Many Tears’ (No.10 UK), Goffin & King’s ‘Take Good Care of My Baby’ (No.3 UK, No.1 US), ‘Run To Him’ (No.6 in the UK, No.2 US), ‘Please Don’t Ask Barbara’ (No.29 UK, No.15 US), ‘Sharing You’ (No.10 UK, No.15 US) and ‘A Forever Kind Of Love’ (No.13). In 1963 he scored one of his biggest hits with ‘The Night has A Thousand Eyes,' which went to No.3 in both Britain and America.
