More ANNETTE – Frankie Avalon, Paul Anka Remember ‘Their Girl’

 New York YORK, April 9 (UPI) — U.S. actor and singer Frankie Avalon says it makes him smile to know his late friend and co-star Annette Funicello is at peace after years of suffering.
Funicello, 70, died Monday due to complications from multiple sclerosis, a disease she battled for decades. Avalon, who starred with Funicello in a string of iconic beach party films, said he first became aware she had the disease when they were working on their 1987 reunion film, “Back to the Beach,” but her condition only got worse from there. “For at least the past six, seven years, she was without communication. It was a terrible existence,” Avalon told TV’s “Inside Edition.” “It makes me smile to know that she’s up there dancing and singing and having a good time.”

 Annette’s first crush, Paul Anka talked of annette on Dennis Miller radio show Tuesday while promoting his new album and bio. Said Annette was the wonderful , natural person as show was on film but they were very young at the time and not ready for marriage, Neil Sedaka also spoke well of Annette o rita Cosby show

ANNETTE Remembered – Ravaged with MS, Fifties Icon Annette Funicello, Husband Glen Holt Reached Out to Fans in Last Days

annette remembered by mickey

You have no doubt learned of the passing of Annette – only the first name is necessary – the 1950s /early 60s icon, who personified the era as much as anyone.  She gave a lot of good times to those lucky to have grown up in the day – the movies, the music, the memories – yet suffered  the past twenty-plus years with MS.  In fact, we posted a little tribute just weeks ago(below) , after learning about her and her husband’s efforts to gain more funding for not only her plight but Multiple Schlerosis sufferers, in general… Will follow up with some more classic videos and fun memories that will come alive again for many of you, we’re sure.

It was with great pleasure to finally catch up

with Annette and her husband ,Glen Holt, who has stood by her for 30 years; they go public with their current life and continuing effort to find a cure for MS  via

their  website,  AnnetteConnection.com.  Annette no longer can walk or even speak, though she still gets out and one can maybe  even see a twinkle in her eye.  It may be hard for some to watch this video though we find it an inspiration. There are also nice tributes from Shelley Fabares and others.   In this four part video series from CTV, we see Annette in her early years and today and  the efforts Glen and doctors have gone to in helping Annette deal with MS, including a new treatment that  is showing promise.  Glen is using Annette’s old foundation to continue researching help for annette and others with MS. He is hoping that, though Annette’s fans, he can raise money to still find a cure.

GREAT TRAILER for the movie ‘Monkey’s Uncle’ with Annette performing title song along with the Beach Boys!

*************************************************************

Annette had an incredible run of 10 Top 20 hits and 5 Top 10 hits in the two year period, 1959-1960,  and then became quite a movie star, with at least six ‘beach’ movies between 1963-1965 and followed up with a popular ‘reunion’ movie, ‘Back To The Beach’ with Franie Avalon and the gang, in 1987, shortly before being diagnosed with MS…

**************************************************************

Congrats to Glen  for ‘lifting the curtain’ of MS, so as to perhaps help others being such a great inspiration to

Annette, who has always been a great inspiration to so many of us form her days on the Mickey Mouse Club to her positive, fun movies  and music and lifestyle.

I saw Annette with Frankie Avalon  about 20 years ago at Pleasanton, CA – 

Alameda county fair,  just before she stopped performing.

It was a great show and we would have hardly  known she was

already dealing with early stage Multiple Sclerosis 

We think it is great that Annette has  came out with her updated story with video now, with the help and encouragement of Glen.   We think it’s a beautful story. I’ve just spent the last three years with my 97 year old Dad , who just passed , but only after , again, three good last years, with kind people’s help and good cheer around him. People can still have quality of life, though sometimes it’s a challenge,even in these situations.

So, again, we applaud Annette, Glen and their team. May we continue to hear inspirational news and  stories from them for many years to come  as we make contributions to the MS cause. Please  help spread your good cheer via their website, above and your own connections as we will do through http://www.OldiesCountry.com and http://www.SeniorCountry.org

 

Rare, Indepth interview -ATTITUDES with Virginia Graham from late 80s- Annette reflects on the changing times and how she still lives up to her ‘clean, happy days’ image, which she relishes…

 

 

Annette talks about her MS in this mid-90s interview with Tom Snyder. Sorry about the poor quality but it is of interest as one of Annete’s last interviews. thanks to ncatt

 

Nice remembrance from the fans on Annette’s recent 70th birthday…

 

Maybe the best for last… Trailer for ‘Beach Blanket Bingo’ featuring no less co-stars than Don Rickles, Paul Lynde and Buster Keaton, among other star names!!!

 

 

From a fan… “She was beautiful, good-natured, humble and kind to everyone around her. And she did it all – TV, movies and music, one of the biggest stars in the world in her time. Then walked away from all of it to raise a family. A role model for everyone who works in this industry. Her suffering was cruel and undeserved, but she handled it courageously. Now she can RIP.”

Labels, collectors celebrate the vinyl record revival

By Dave Thompson

“Vinyl never went away. It was the record companies that deserted it, believing they could make better margins out of CDs,” says Keith Jones of U.K. independent record label Fruits de Mer Records, which specializes in vinyl.

Jones — who admittedly may be just a little bit biased on the topic of vinyl vs. CDs and MP3s opinion, insists that vinyl is here to stay.

“I don’t see much of a commercial future for bland, sterile CDs and even less for paid-for downloads,” he says. “The only future for paid-for recorded music that I can see is to create something that looks and sounds great, has lasting value, means something to the buyer, makes them feel good about spending hard-earned cash on it, makes them want to repeat the dosage.”
