Happy Birthday Jerry Butler

Happy birthday to Jerry Butler, born December 8, 1939.

Jerry Butler was accorded the nickname "The Ice Man" by a Philadelphia DJ who once called Butler's show "the coolest thing I ever saw." That was in the early 60s after Butler had left the Impressions, with whom he'd scored the doo-wop hit "For Your Precious Love." More than 40 years later, he's still the Ice Man, but you can call him "Commissioner Ice Man," as he is Cook County Board Commissioner in his native Chicago.
