I realized today that Timmy T. was conspicuously absent from the Grizzlies Fresno Famous Bobblehead contest (round of 16 voting ends 5 p.m. tonight). I say conspicuously, because Timmy T. (real name Timothy Torres) was born and raised in Fresno and was particularly famous for a quick moment in 1991 with his song “One More Try,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
On this very day, in fact.
We haven’t mentioned Timmy T. much of the Beehive lately, but he was of particular interest on the site for awhile, especially after rappers Fashawn and Omar Aura gave “One More Try” this awesome (and Fresnocentric) makeover in 2012.
Having a No. 1 single is no small feat, especially one with such a damn catchy chorus. So, my hats off and respect to Timmy T. Click through the jump to see a video of the original track.
