  • Robert Goulet dies at age 73 (Merged)

    This was just posted on MSNBC

    Singer was at a Los Angeles hospital awaiting a lung transplant

    Updated: 13 minutes ago


    LOS ANGELES - Robert Goulet, the handsome, big-voiced baritone whose Broadway debut in “Camelot” launched an award-winning stage and recording career, has died. He was 73.

    The singer died Tuesday morning in a Los Angeles hospital while awaiting a lung transplant, said Goulet spokesman Norm Johnson.

    He had been awaiting a lung transplant at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after being found last month to have a rare form of pulmonary fibrosis.



    Goulet had remained in good spirits even as he waited for the transplant, said Vera Goulet, his wife of 25 years.

    “Just watch my vocal cords,” she said he told doctors before they inserted a breathing tube.

    The Massachusetts-born Goulet, who spent much of his youth in Canada, gained stardom in 1960 with “Camelot,” the Lerner and Loewe musical that starred Richard Burton as King Arthur and Julie Andrews as his Queen Guenevere.

    Goulet played Sir Lancelot, the arrogant French knight who falls in love with Guenevere.

    He became a hit with American TV viewers with appearances on “The Ed Sullivan Show” and other programs. Sullivan labeled him the “American baritone from Canada,” where he had already been a popular star in the 1950s, hosting his own show called “General Electric’s Showtime.”

    Sad indeed. Did any of you see the commercials recently that he made where he's in this office messing things up? I found those so funny, and to learn of his passing is quite sad indeed.

          I'm always going to remember him as the singing voice for Wheezy the Penguin in TS2, and from Naked Gun.

              awww, so sad to hear about him gone. Rest in Peace Robert Goulet. I will always remember seeing him as King Arthur in Camelot in a play I saw him in. He did play a great King Arthur too.

                            Sad news. Goulet was also the singing voice of Mikey in the Disney TV show Recess and its film Recess: School's Out.

                            I guess we will all miss his voice.

                                  Let's not forget the time he was on the Simpsons as himself.

                                  Goulet: Hi. You from the casino?
                                  Bart: I'm from a casino.
                                  Goulet: Good enough. Let's go.

                                      May he rest in Peace. He was my grandma's favorite singer of all time and a true legend.

                                        I was fortunate to get to meet him in the late '70's when my College Drama class did a tour of Warner Bros Studios. He was there, walking around, saw us, started talking to all of us and then gave us all an imprompt concert. He spent close to 30 min with us awestruck kids. Very sweet, very funny man.

                                        Always one of my favorite actors.

                                        He will be very much missed.
