Pop singer Jimmie Rodgers has died at the age of 87.
Not to be confused with the native country icon of the same name, Rodgers was famous for his films “Honeycomb” and “Kisses Sweeter Than Wine” among others in the 1950s and 60s.
The singer was diagnosed with kidney disease in the Palm Desert, California, on Monday, January 18, citing Rodgers publicist-family. The musician also tested positive for coronavirus.
After the Korean War, when he was stationed in Nashville, Rodgers paid 10 10 per night around town. He signed a roulette record after winning a talent contest that auditioned for the label.
The artist’s music pop was known to be associated with country and folk, resulting in “Top 10”, “Oh, oh, I’m falling in love again,” and “Are you really mine?” Including many 10 hit movies have come out.
Rodgers also changed acting in the ’60s with the screening of “Checkmake” and a part of the movie “The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come”.
In 1964, he starred in “Backdoor to Tell” with Jack Nicholson, a young man.
In 1967, Rodgers accused an off-duty police officer of injuring his head after he was found in his car with a skull and other injuries while standing on a Los Angeles freeway came.
He said he pulled over when a driver behind him was lighting their lights.
“I turned the window to ask what I was talking about,” he told the Toronto Star in 1987. This is the last thing I remember.
However, Los Angeles police said Rodgers had injured himself after falling into a drunken stupor. He sued and was awarded 200,000.
Eventually, he developed a condition that caused strain on his vocal cords and occasional seizures, which he blamed on the alleged attack.
He is survived by his wife, Mary Louise Biggerstaff, and five children from three marriages.
