Singer 'Big' Al Downing Dead at Age 65 - Yahoo! News: "NASHVILLE, Tenn. - 'Big' Al Downing, a singer-songwriter and pianist who had success in country, rockabilly, rhythm and blues, rock 'n' roll and even disco, has died after suffering from leukemia. He was 65."
When I saw this news, I was immediately transported back to 1959, when Big Al released his version of "When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Again." I loved that song when Elvis did it, and I loved Big Al's version. I might be the only person in the country who remembers Big Al for that song, but I thought it was great. I'm sorry to hear he's gone.
