RIP: Jimmy Dean, 1928-2010

Somewhere Abe Froman is toasting the true sausage king, Jimmy Dean, who passed away yesterday at the age of 81. 

Dean was also known previously as a country cooner for his song “Big Bad John,” which helped land him a spot in the Country Music Hall of Fame.  He also had a supporting roll in the James Bond film Diamonds are Forever.
