You have to admit, he's the only one of his kind!

How about a little Tiny Tim trivia?

In an interview on Fresh Air with Terry Gross he said he wore white makeup to feel pure in contrast to his feeling that he was unattractive.

An image of Tim's face appeared on Poison Idea's 1990 album 'Feel the Darkness' with a gun being held to his forehead. He later attempted to sue the band, but gave up after discovering they did not have any money.

His real name was Herbert Khaury, he was born on on April 12, 1932, of a Lebonese father and a mother who was a Polish Jew.

In contrast to the romance-oriented publicity of their wedding on he Tonight Show, Tiny Tim and Miss Vicki mostly lived apart, and divorced eight years later. Their daughter, Tulip Victoria, is now married and living in Pennsylvania with four children.

Toward the end of his life Tiny Tim became a fixture at 'Spooky World,' an annual Halloween-themed exposition in western Massachusetts.

In September 1996, he suffered a heart attack and was warned by his doctors not to perform any longer. While playing 'Tiptoe Through The Tulips' at The Woman's Club of Minneapolis on Nov. 30th of that year, he suffered another heart attack on stage. He was led out by his third wife, Susan Marie Gardner, who asked him if he was okay. Tim responded, 'No, I'm not!' Those were his final words.

Believe it or not this was a pretty big hit on the radio. About 1969 thereabouts. Can you imagine a song and a singer like this being played today? Radio was just so much more interesting in those days.
