Today is a sad day in the music world. As you probably have already heard Eddie Fisher has passed away. As I type these words I’m having difficulty describing how much his music means to me as a fan, and how much I know it means to countless other people out there who are devastated after hearing the tragic news.

The smooth sound of ‘Wish You Were Here’ is flowing through my room, and although I’ve listened to it a thousands times, this time, the words mean something different, they mean so much more.

Instead on focusing on his death, I’ve decided to focus on his life for the rest of this article. And for those of you who aren’t familiar with his work, you may be wondering, who is Eddie Fisher? Let’s Find out.

As a biography, he was born on August 10, 1928 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His family gave him the nickname ‘Sonny Boy’. He discovered his talent for singing at a very young age and entered many amateur contests, and it is no surprise that more often than not he won. Before he even reached the age of 18 he new exactly what he wanted to do with his life, at least professionally speaking. During the second semester of his senior year in high school he dropped out to follow his dream of becoming a famous musician. Cleary this worked out for him because not only did he sell millions of records, but he also had his own television program.

Here you will find even more bio information and photos.

In loving memory – pictures of Eddie Fisher (click to enlarge pics) and a video of ‘Tell Me Why’ has been included below.
