RIP Clyde Forsman (1915-2009)

Legendary accordionist Clyde Forsman has passed. I was lucky enough to see him perform with TDA (Those Darn Accordions) several times and have chatted with him backstage. He was kind, funny, spunky and a super accordionist and entertainer.

He enjoyed fame late in life which included national touring, MTV and screaming female fans throwing underwear. To the delight of his adoring audiences he’d often remove his shirt to reveal his physique and flamboyant tattoos as he sang such hits as “Do You Think I’m Sexy” and “Fire”.

Tonight we’ll sing the Lament for you, Clyde. May your new adventures be as wild and crazy.
