Eddie Munster records Halloween single
For those wondering, it appears that Butch "Eddie Munster" Patrick is still alive. According to his official website, he's recorded a single called "It's Only Halloween". A clip of this song is played when you navigate to the site. If you want to own the collectible CD, you'd better hurry because only 300 are available.
If you check out the website, you'll see he's even keeping busy doing a lot of work you've probably never heard of. The audio clip shows off Butch's singing talents which can probably be compared to those of William Shatner. He tries to speak the lyrics in a scary voice a la Boris Pickett singing "Monster Mash". It makes me wonder whether Butch's fans are simply in it for the irony.
Still, there are too many stories of child celebrities going crazy and ending up in forty car pile-ups with a blood alcohol content of 0.9 and a bucket of blow in the back seat. Butch Patrick is definitely doing better than other child stars who go into recording contracts like, say, Lindsay Lohan.
