Bobby Lewis, who had the enormously successful song "Tossin' and Turnin" hit from 1961 died April 28th. He was 95. Lewis lived his entire life with poor eyesight, almost totally blind in his later years. "Tossin' and Turnin' hit number 1 on the charts, and stayed there for 7 weeks, which is quite an accomplishment, earning him a gold record for a million sales. He also had a second hit called, "One track mind" which charted at #9. R.I.P. 1925-2020.

Sorry to hear, but living to 95 is no mean feat, R.I.P.

I remember both records well; Tossin' and Turnin' came out in the summer of '61 here on the west coast, and his followup wax, One Track Mind, a few months later.
