On Saturday, the country world lost one of his members, the famous and memorable singer Waldemar Matuška.
He won recognition by his low and flannelly voice. Death cause was pneumonia and heart failure. He died on Florida, May 30, 2009, aged 76.
His success in 60-teen became with song Suvenir. As one czechoslovak agency wrote about him: “he has hoodlumy sex appeal, beard, evil-eyes and sparkle by energy, he was oposite of his show-business college Karel Gott”. And Waldemar said: ” I m type of vagabond, tramp and singers”.
Maybe it is destiny, but this weekend I was on one country action. Some friends met, played guitar, sang. We played many songs of him. It was shock to came home on Sunday evening and got to hear that bad news.
Waldemar, Walda, will always of my heard. For ever.
