He had such a beautiful storyteller's voice - his late '60s work is timeless. 

Loved “Hooked on a Feeling,” which they played all the time on the oldies station when I was a kid. Handsome dude too:

The intro is just gorgeous...it annoys me a little that now most people only know the cover. His voice truly soars, similar to his cover of I'm So Lonesome.

It actually surprised me when I was older that the “Ooga Chaka” version was more popular. I think I first heard that Blue Swede version in a commercial and thought it was a joke.

Gavin MacLeod's death is a shock even though he was 90 years old. I remember watching MTM growing up with the knowledge that they were all still alive except for Ted Knight. Now, it really is just Ed and Betty. On the other hand, Gavin is the first Love Boat regular to pass away. It just feels like another reminder of how long it's been since both of those shows were in their heydays.

Absolutely!  Gives me a reason to play Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song (not that I need a reason).  I loved his voice. 

 

RIP
