Today's Friday Flashback is brought to you by a bubbling brew - because that's my favorite sound effect in the Monster Mash. It also happens to be my favorite Halloween tune.
Bobby Boris Pickett is the voice and face behind the Mash. He was born February 11, 1938 in Somerville Massachusetts. Bobby's father was the manager of a movie theatre. This helped the young impressionable boy watch many a horror film. Bobby was also a Veteran of the Korean war.
In 1962, Monster Mash hit the billboard top 100 2 weeks before Halloween.
Due to leukemia and complications, Bobby Boris Pickett passed away April 27, 2007. He was survived by his daughter Nancy and her two children.
Now go out and tear it up in honor of the Monster behind the Mash!
