Wikipedia : This day (February 12, 2000), in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, died Jalacy ‘Screamin’ Jay’ Hawkins,an American musician, singer, and actor.
@Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews : Screamin’ Jay Hawkins was the first rock and roll humorist, and arguably the greatest (except maybe Zappa), salting even his most serious tunes with hilarious off-hand comments and other peculiar sounds.
@last.fm : His act has often featured him emerging from a casket to sing his best-known hit, “I Put a Spell on You” (1956), carrying a skull smoking a cigarette. He is considered the first true “shock-rocker,” with his onstage antics.
