If Bud Abbott died of prostate cancer in 1974 then “when” did Costello die? No…”when” is in right field.


Bud Abbott was diagnosed with prostate cancer shortly after breaking his hip in 1972. Because he died of the disease two years later the fracture may have been a pathologic fracture i.e. weakened bone because the prostate cancer had spread there. He was 79.

    1. I guess you’ll unsubscribe now. Dog gone it! A quirk of WordPress is that it won’t publish a youtube the first time. For this post you’ll click to go to the site and there will be your answer. Abbott must have had a pathologic fracture as his first sign of prostate cancer. He’s a ” famous person ” with prostate cancer. To me it’s fun to learn the history of these folks. The ” who’s on first ” is a classic that I know you will remember and you’ll remember this too I bet…..Spahn and Sain / pray for rain. Tomorrow’s not talking. Very clever Dr. Ken…I did not catch it at first…Karen had to decipher.
