Stan Freberg

Post by minnick27 »

I know this could be in Als Pals, but I feel it deserves it's own topic. Donavan Freberg announced that his father passed away this morning. There hasn't been any other announcement that I've seen, but I feel this is enough. I'm heartbroken here, he is one of the greatest comedic minds on the 20th century and a major influence on Al. I'd like to hear everyone's favorite bit from Stan. Obviously alot of people will pick things from The United States albums, but I wanna hear some deeper cuts. One of my biggest favorites is Elderly Man River. That's My Boy is another one. He's a tremendous talent who will be missed

RIP Stan.
I am so lucky that I got to see him live in person a few months ago at that event in LA.
What a treasure.

RIP, Stan. This is a horribly sad day for comedy. He was one of the best.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.
