I posted this in the Tune R.I.P's, but since it also relates to food, I thought I would post it here also.

:tombstone: - Jimmy Dean, 81, (singer, businessman "Jimmy Dean Sausage")

http://music.msn.com/music/article.aspx ... &GT1=28102

Jimmy Dean was a very famous country music singer in the 50's, 60's, 70's, etc. for his hit record "Big Bad John", but perhaps may be best known for his Jimmy Dean
Sausage products.

Condolences to his family.

I barely remember seeing Jimmy Dean do the commercials for this sausage, but I do remember they were good commercials. They should have left him doing them as he was very identifiable with the product.

Eh, that's marketing folks for you. They're always changing approaches, working new angles. On the other hand, if Dean wanted to continue having some kind of involvement in the brand, he should have specified that in a contract when he sold it.

As for his music, I haven't heard much of it. I've heard of that Big John song, whatever it's called, but I can't recall ever actually hearing the music...
