Singer Robert Goulet, 73, Dies Waiting For Transplant

Posted: Updated:

Robert Goulet was in good spirits as he waited for a lung transplant, even telling doctors before they inserted a breathing tube, "Just watch my vocal cords," his wife said.

The big-voiced baritone, whose Broadway debut in "Camelot" launched an award-winning stage and recording career, died Tuesday at a Los Angeles hospital, where he had been awaiting the transplant after being diagnosed last month with a rare form of pulmonary fibrosis. Goulet was 73.
