Re: 1970's Cross-Over artist Passes
I've enjoyed B.J. Thomas's songs for decades. RIP Billy Joe.
After over a 50 year career, B.J. Thomas succumbed to stage four lung cancer today. An unusual voice, possibly a result of nicotine addiction, enabled him to pass the audition with Burt B. and Hal David to sing their song "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head" for the top-grossing film on that year: "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." R.I.P.
