Miguel Ferrer

Miguel Ferrer, Rosemary Clooney's son, has died of throat cancer at the age of 61.

He appeared with his mother as a teenager, accompanying her on guitar, in some of Bing's last stage shows.

I'm sure other notices will be appearing in time, but here's an early one

Think Miguel was on drums at the Palladium.

I stand corrected.  My old grey matter must be getting even older and greyer!

Sad news...

Rosie can be heard proudly introducing her son (on drums!) on the recording of the Palladium concert.

Re: Miguel Ferrer

- and I'm also wrong about him being in his teens - a group from which he would have emerged a couple of years prior to those stage shows.

Re: Miguel Ferrer

During Rosie's introduction of her son during Bing's '76 Palladium show, she mentions the fact that Miguel had been to the Palladium once before - as a babe-in-arms during her headlining appearance there in 1955.

There's a youtube (audio-only) recording of Rosie "Live at the London Palladium" here


I have to admit I hadn't heard it before, and it makes for great listening. A certain Buddy Cole is on piano...
