    Herbert Buckingham Khaury (April 12, 1932 – November 30, 1996), better known by the stage name Tiny Tim, was an American singer, ukulele player, and musical archivist. He is most famous for his rendition of "Tiptoe Through The Tulips" sung in his distinctive high falsetto / vibrato voice. He is generally thought of as a novelty act, though his records display a wide knowledge of American songs.

    In an interview on Fresh Air he said he wore white makeup to feel pure in contrast to his feeling that he was unattractive.

    In September 1996, he suffered a heart attack just as he began singing at the Ukulele Hall of Fame in Cranston, Rhode Island, but he continued to play concerts when he was released from hospital despite warnings from his doctors that, due to the fragile state of his heart, he could die any moment. While playing "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" at a concert at the Women's Club of Minneapolis in November of that year, he suffered another heart attack on stage. He was led out by his wife who asked him if he was okay. Tim responded, "No, I'm not!" Those were to be his final words. He collapsed shortly thereafter and was rushed to Hennepin County Medical Center where he died after doctors tried to resuscitate him for an hour and fifteen minutes. He is buried in the mausoleum of Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis.
