  • RIP - Tony Lindsey

    Perhaps overshadowed by the loss of the beloved Aunty Nona, it should be noted that a gentleman who popularized "Blue Hawai`i" (and a relative of our own Pomai) also passed away recently - Uncle Tony Lindsey.

    I remember Uncle Tony Lindsey from way back when...Kalihi Palace. Always with his signature hat. Yep! "Blue Darling....no body can sing da song like him."

    Rest In Peace...Uncle Tony Lindsey.



    Love and ALOHA,
    Lynn Vasquez and Ohana.

        Uh...oops. Yes - "Blue Darling" - not "Blue Hawai`i." Apologies.

            Thanks for the mention. I really don't know the Lindsey side of our family as much as my mother does (and as much as I should). My grandmother (mom's side) was a Lindsey.

            Mom said Uncle Tony wrote Blue Darling for his mother to ask for forgiveness (he was a naughty boy), but unfortunately she passed away before he was able to play it for her, then eventually record it.

            I love Kapena's rendition of the song.
