Boots Randolph (1923-2007)

Boots Randolph, the sax player best known for "Yaketty Sax" (the song used for those Benny Hill chase scenes) has passed away. I always thought he was also the guy on the Coasters' songs "Yaketty Yak" and "Charlie Brown," but apparently that was King Curtis. Anyway, let's have one last chase for ol' Boots.

You know, these Benny Hill routines are actually pretty funny. I don't think I've watched them since I was maybe 14.

Let's also note the passing of Playboy cartoonist Robert "Buck" Brown (best known for the naughty granny character), and 7th Voyage of Sinbad star Kerwin Mathews.
