Senator John McCain has said before many times that the Platters are one of his favorite groups, and “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” is one of his favorite songs. He echoed those sentiments when news of Herb Reed’s passing reached him. I thought it would be nice to send him a couple of Platters CDs to thank him for being such a loyal fan of our music, and for remembering Herb. Senator McCain took time out from his no doubt busy schedule to send me a very nice thank you note that I thought I would share with you all here:
A fan is still a fan, and I love them all!
