    Can't be many of his followers left to have a sad day... most likely the reason the doors are closing. However he didn't just epitomized bling... he invented it.

    In 1956 my father known for his dark wavy hair dressed up in tails and finger-synced to a couple of his records for a fundraiser for the Pike Township Volunteer Firemen. The crowd had been told that there was a special guest that night flown in from Las Vegas for their entertainment. The curtain opened and there sat a grand piano with a candelabra sitting on top of it. The crowd got excited and then my Dad strolled out bowed to the audience before sliding onto the bench and began to finger-sync. I'm pretty sure most of the audience was buying it because when us kids and Mom started to giggle we were shushed several times by those sitting around us... they thought we were so uncouth.

    Most people don't have a family Liberace story... this is ours.

    "Ooh woo, I'm a Rebel just for kicks, now
    I been feeling it since 1966, now..."

        I'm very much a fan. His talent was amazing. His showmanship was made for Vegas. In fact, I'm not sure that Elvis didn't try to emulate Liberace in the 70s.

          Agreed. You could even make a case that Liberace invented Glam Rock.

              Did you know that he put that picture on an album but Montgomery Wards refused to put it on their shelves?

                Tough news about the museum.

                Liberace was Wisconsin's favourite son? I'd have thought it would be Frank Lloyd Wright or Gen. MacArthur

                    Oh, Gosh, Thanks, you'll never know how much I appreciate you fixing my typo and posting that delightful, and unforgetable, picture.

                    I guess maybe I did ask for it.

                              I saw Liberace at the Butler University Theatron quite a few years ago. He was quite a talent.
                              Have a very blessed day!
