Slim Whitman, known for his yodeling skills and falsetto voice, died Wednesday, June 19, 2013, of heart failure in Florida. He was 90. Whitman's career began in the late 1940s, and his tenor falsetto and ebony mustache and sideburns became global trademarks. They were also an inspiration for countless jokes thanks to the ubiquitous 1980s and 1990s TV
commercials that pitched his records.
