Fayard Nichols dead at 91

Of course I first read about Fayard Nicholas' passing on a blog. I had just watched that Broadway's Golden Age DVD, which had a clip of the Nicholas Brothers, so I had been reminded recently of that great tradition of hoofers. I was a huge Gregory Hines fan, and he, in turn was influenced by such artists as the Nicholas Brothers (he even featured Fayard's brother Harold in his movie Tap.)

This picture of a young Fayard Nicholas and his shaky signature is from a site that sells Hollywood memorabilia, and is available for $30. (I have no connection to the site, I just want to give proper attribution for the picture.)
