~Vale Gary Paxton ~
We have received extremely sad news that 1980 Kedron Premiership player Gary Paxton passed away in Albury last Sunday 12th September.
Gary came from Albury Tigers to Kedron in 1980 with his best mate Grant Torney and they both played an integral part in the 1980 Premiership winning side coached by Norm Dare.
Gary will be remembered as an extremely fast winger who had the ability to elude the opposition and deliver the ball to his forwards or slot a long range goal himself. He was a very popular player at Kedron making many life long friends. It was through Gary and Grant that a great exchange of players and friendships developed over the years between Kedron Redlegs and the Albury Tigers.
Gary was a very successful and popular Hotelier in the Albury Wodonga area as well as operating a café at Bilinga on the Gold Coast for many years with his son and daughter.
Kedron past players, members and friends would like pass on their condolences to Gary’s family.

2. Gary Paxton, ‘Monster Mash’ producer, has died – Death

Gary Paxton, who passed away at the age of 77, was a singer, composer, and record producer. He was responsible, among other things, for producing the hit novelty songs “Alley-Oop” and “Monster Mash.” He later became a gospel musician and was the indirect cause of marital strife between the televangelist Jim Bakker and his wife, Tammy Faye, which resulted in Bakker’s downfall. Gary Paxton was a gospel musician Alley-Oop was written and composed by Dallas Frazier, and it was recorded in 1960 by the Hollywood Argyles, a studio band that, according to one critic, had “some claim to being the ultimate reduction of rock ‘n’ roll to a dumb, absurd, bad joke.”

Alley-Oop was based on a comic-strip character who rode a pet dinosaur. In spite of the lyrics (“There’s a man in the funny papers we all know (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop) / He lived way back a long time ago (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)…), the song achieved number one on the Billboard Hot 100 list and number 24 in the British charts. Paxton was responsible for producing the record and also recorded lead vocals on it. Bobby “Boris” Pickett, an imitator of Boris Karloff, sang the song “He did the mash / He did the monster mash / The monster mash / It was a graveyard smash” in the lugubrious voice of a mad scientist who describes seeing his monster rise from his slab and introduce a new dance.
