Goulet, Dapper Singer, ‘Camelot’ Star, Dead at Age 73 (11/26/33 – 10/30/07)

By Laurence Arnold
Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) — Robert Goulet, the singer whose rich baritone voice and classic tall, dark and handsome appearance made him a star on Broadway and television, has died. He was 73.
Goulet suffered from a rare form of pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive and fatal condition. He was being treated at Cedars- Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and was awaiting a lung transplant when he died today, the Associated Press reported, citing spokesman Norm Johnson.

This is a performance clip for those of you who don’t know Mr. Goulet. My all time favorite was his work in “Camelot” — especially “If Ever I Would Leave You”. But alas I could not find a full length video of him performing it. But I do remember him performing it on Ed Sullivan and the many Variety shows of the era.

Oh – I also remember when he did a cameo on the show “Boy Meets World”: he was too funny.

RIP Mr Goulet and thanks for all you gave in the world of entertainment.
