martin denny has passed away. i can’t say i’m surprised, but it’s still incredibly sad. the aunt of a friend of mine used to live in the apartment below the denny’s. a few years ago this friend went for a visit and got martin to autograph a cd for me. he said that denny had so many wonderful stories to tell – in hindsight he wished he had brought a tape recorder to record them. i certainly wish he had. martin denny may be gone, but at least we still have his music.
