Personal Quote:

We came from a very poor family and in those days money was scarce.. my brother [Frank] would take me along to perform in weddings, christenings saloons and streetcars. I'd pass the hat around - anything to make a dollar so we could help the family along. See more »

Trivia:

His gentle, high tenor voice was the acknowledged inspiration for entertainer Tiny Tim. They even had the same theme song, "Tip-Toe Through the Tulips." The two men eventually became friends, and, when, on December 17, 1969, Tim married first wife Miss Vicki (Vicki Budinger) on "The Tonight Show," Lucas was there, at his request, to sing "Tulips."
