From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Larry Verne (born February 8, 1936, Minneapolis, Minnesota[1]) was an American novelty song singer. Verne scored two U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart hit singles in 1960: "Mister Livingston" (#75) and "Mr. Custer" (#1, #9 R&B).[2] "Mr. Custer" was written by Fred Darian, Al DeLory, and Joe Van Winkle.[1] The record sold over one million copies, earning a gold disc.[1] In the UK, "Mr. Custer" was successfully covered by Charlie Drake.

Not happy with the music industry, Verne switched to becoming a successful builder of sets for the Hollywood film industry for 35 years before he retired.[3]
