May he rest in peace, He was a great music man who worked with so many great artists including the 'KING'
He was married for a short time to actress Joan O'Brien who was the female lead in "It Happened at the Worlds Fair"
Sad to hear of anyone dying.

Love this guy, as a session musician he also play guitar for Elvis during the Viva las Vegas sessions, and not only wrote "A Little Less Conversation" but worked as session producer and musical arranger for the Live a Little Love a Little sessions. Elvis liked so much the sound created in those session that he wanted Billy Strange to be the musical arranger for his NBC TV Special, although William Goldenberg ultimately got the job, but still, Strange's Nothingville and Memories made it.
Rest in Peace.
