Did You Know?


Among his many recordings was "The Red Rock," a romantic song about the ancient Jordanian city of Petra. Critics say the song encouraged a 1960s craze among young Israelis to sneak across the unfenced border into Jordan to see the site, and some were killed in the attempt by mines or Jordanian frontier patrols.
