People assume Tiny Tim was a trainwreck behind the scenes, but in reality he was just a ukulele loving nerd who was so obsessed with old timey music he officially earned the title 'archivist'.
However, his act was relegated to the realm of novelty from day one, his quirky uke playing and freaky falsetto singing deemed too strange for mainstream music lovers.
After his first album God Bless Tiny Tim was released his career quickly headed downhill, and ten years later he officially reached rock bottom on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson back in 1979.
The look on Johnny's face at the end of Tiny Tim's freaky performance is priceless, and it's nice to hear Tim's normal singing voice for once, but I found his suit to be a bit too flashy...
