The world of Comedy has lost another great comedian. This past week it was Harold “Egon” Ramis, who I remember from the movie series of Ghostbusters and was a wonderful director. And now Tim Wilson is the latest to go on to Comedy Heaven.
Tim Wilson passed away in Nashville last night of an apparant heart attack. He was only 52 years of age. Plenty of folks are paying tributes to him and his comedy today. He was one who will write a comedy bit “on the fly” whenever he appears on a radio show, especially The Bob and Tom Show, where he was a regular guest. The bit that sticks out in my mind involves Chick McGee capping the oil spill. Let me give you a recap of the oil spell…..err……oil spill. BP was responsible for an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico back in 2010. It was the worst spill to date. You can Google the info on that, but getting back to what I am tributing here, here is “Little Timmy” Wilson in one of his “on the fly” bits on the Bob and Tom Show singing about Chick capping the oil spill–http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYagnNJRZRg&list=PLzeCIR5RYCYY6g6KTOsy2VYZw84CjTaJx&feature=share&index=18

On behalf of “Buddy’s Ramblings” I would like to send my condolences to Tim Wilson’s family during this time of sorrow.
Rest In Peace brother Tim Wilson.
That’s my story…….and I am sticking to it.
