RIP, Eduard Khil (aka Mr. Trololo)

The sad news has come from St. Petersburg, Russia, that Eduard Khil has died.  He had suffered a stroke in late May and been in critical condition since then.  He was 77 years old.

The Soviet baritone is best known in the West as “Mr. Trololo” after a video he filmed in 1976 went viral in 2010.
