Known for his “smooth” voice and his highly public romances with the day’s biggest stars, Eddie Fisher died after complications from hip surgery.
Fisher recorded 25 Top 40 hits in the 1950s, which included four chart-toppers. He also starred on several television shows. But Fisher is probably most famous for his marriages. His first, to Debbie Reynolds, produced daughter Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars triology. He also married Elizabeth Taylor and Connie Stevens, and was rumored to be involved with Judy Garland and Ann-Margret.
