Eddie Lewis

Posted on 11 June 2017 by Brian Walsh

Eddie Lewis, tenor singer and last original member of the Olympics, who gave us “Western Movies” (#8-1958), died Wednesday (May 31) of unspecified causes. Eddie was the cousin of lead singer Walter Ward. Formed in Los Angeles as Walter Ward & the Challengers, they recorded one single for Melatone Records, before moving on to Demon Records with “Western Movies”. All told, they appeared 14 times on the pop charts, including “(Baby) Hully Gully”, whose melody was later used for “Peanut Butter” by the Marathons and “Big Boy Pete” (#50-1960), whose melody was later used by the Kingsmen for “The Jolly Green Giant”.
