Fresno’s favorite local singing sensation, Timmy T, gets a shout-out in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly.
The pop culture magazine’s “Chart Flashback” lists Timmy T’s “One More Try” as the number one single twenty years ago this week, and has these not-so-glowing words to say about the song: “Balls of tinfoil have better production values than this tinkly synth-pop plea, and L.A. freestyler Timmy T never hit the Top 40 again. But oh, that aching, Casio-assisted misery.”
Wow. Way harsh, Tai. Also, “L.A. freestyler”? Timmy T is Fresno born, baby. Anyone who writes an angry letter to Entertainment Weekly and gets it published will have his/her letter reprinted here on the Beehive, and props will be doled out accordingly.
We may not have much, but we have Timmy T, dammit.
