Don Ho passed away, see this if ya missed it.
He was a veteran and pretty much everyone stationed in, or passing through Hawaii knew of him.
I never managed to see his show while I was living in Honolulu, but I did work with him a couple of times.
The thing that struck me about him was that even during a difficult video shoot (maybe film – it was nearly 30 years ago) he was smooooth.
Our work was in the actual studio where Tiny Bubbles was recorded albeit since gutted and updated.
He was a character, and will be missed… if only as an icon that meant Hawaii.
