He must have been in reasonably good health to father 21 children
As has been said already what a marvellous voice

He could have recreated Monty Python's 'Every Sperm Is Sacred' sequence with all those children and grandchildren!

Jeremy Hunt mustn't have been a fan. Laughing

Was he Catholic?? Didn't appear to believe in birth control.
But he had a great voice. I have his "Nashville" album from 2006. Good stuff
