I had heard that he was ill.


He was one of the good guys.

I loved his recitation of "If Jesus came to your house" (What would you do), which was performed with "What a friend we have in Jesus" as the backing track. Very nice.

If I hadn't watched the Dolly Parton programme on the Biography channel, I wouldn't have even known who Porter was....he never had even a minor hit over here in the UK. I read his Wiki profile, seems he was a good guy, always willing to help a fellow musician. He'll be missed.

Yeah, he is one of the last remaining country legends left :cry: In fact he may have been the last one.

Still remember those Breeze laundry detergent TV commercials he did with Dolly -- free towel in every box. He was a sight, even standing next to young Dolly.

Here is something to remember him by. Probably one of the last things he did. Some REAL country music.

I used to watch Porter's show on TV when Dolly was his young protege. :D
