Out of the Blue

'Purple People Eater' Singer Wooley Dies is the news story with word the actor/singer died yesterday. Sheb is probably unknown to many, but I'm familiar with his Purple People Eater song, having picked up the single as a hand-me-down in my youth (an actual 45 RPM record... talk about dating myself). The weird thing is how my buddy Devicer and I spontaneously started singing this tune just the other day while playing online. I literally hadn't thought of the song in years, and then it comes up about a day before the artist died. Just a little weird.

So how did it (pr0n) get that spelling anyway?

I've often wondered about that too ...
