Actor/Singer TAB HUNTER Dies Just Short of 87th Birthday
TV, motion picture and recording star TAB HUNTER has died at the age of 86 - just shy of his 87th birthday. Cause of death has not been released at this time. He is probably best known for Damn Yankees, but also appeared in Ride the Wild Surf and Operation: Bikini. He attempted sitcom success in 1960 in the eponymous Tab Hunter Show on which he portrayed a comic strip illustrator and playboy named Paul Morgan. It only lasted one season on NBC. Tab was also able to parlay his film fame into a #1 hit record, "Young Love." Enjoy a live performance of that classic tune on The Perry Como Show from 1957 by clicking below.
