:twisted: Al Martino passed away yesterday at the age of 82.
Perhaps most famous for playing lounge singer Johnny Fontane in The Godfather trillogy, Al Martino also had the first British number 1 hit (Here In My Heart) when charts were started in England in 1952.

might add his evergreen "spanish eyes" is known all around the world as well.

How sad.
I saw him live a few years ago. Was quite a sad thing. He was one in a bunch of crappy b-celebs in a german tv show i attended. Wasnt even allowed to sing live most of the time and had to perform a "disco medley" of his greatest hits...
