Ed Ames, la star de la chanson devenue un visage familier à la télévision, décède à l’âge de 95 ans.

After more than a decade of hit records with his brothers, he found success as a solo performer and a star of the series “Daniel Boone.”

Ed Ames, the lead singer of the Ames Brothers and a popular actor on the NBC show « Daniel Boone, » passed away on Sunday at the age of 95. Ames gained fame as part of the Ames Brothers, a chart-topping group that sold over 20 million records from the late 1940s through the late 1950s. The group had a two-sided No. 1 hit in 1950 with « Sentimental Me » and « Rag Mop, » and their « You, You, You » held the top spot for eight weeks in 1953. After leaving the group, Ames found success as a solo artist and had hits with « Try to Remember, » « Time, Time, » « My Cup Runneth Over, » and « Who Will Answer? » He also starred in the Broadway production of « One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest » and played Mingo on « Daniel Boone » for the show’s first four seasons.

Ames’ introduction to the spotlight was a family affair, as he performed with his brothers Gene, Joe, and Vic in the Ames Brothers. The group had a string of hits and performed at major venues, including Ciro’s in Hollywood and the Roxy in New York. They also appeared regularly on television, as guests of Milton Berle, Perry Como, Jackie Gleason, and Ed Sullivan. In 1956, they had their own syndicated TV series, and in 1958, Billboard magazine named them the vocal group of the year.

After leaving the group, Ames found success as a solo artist and actor. He had hits with several songs and starred in the Broadway production of « One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. » He also played Mingo on « Daniel Boone » for the show’s first four seasons. Ames’ most memorable moment during those years came on « The Tonight Show » in 1965, when he set out to teach Johnny Carson how to toss a tomahawk and ended up embedding it in a wooden panel of a sheriff’s crotch.
