From numerous sources, we have sadly learned of the passing of the Amazing Johnathan. According to Rolling Stone, "An exact cause of death was not immediately given, though Johnathan — born Johnathan Edward Szeles — had previously revealed he had been diagnosed with a heart condition. Szeles’ wife, the performer Anastasia Synn, confirmed her husband’s death, telling the Review-Journal he died in his sleep Tuesday night."

In remembrance, I am reposting my conversation with him from just before his annual Halloween Party in 2008.

Johnathan, it will be hard to forget someone who gave us so much to remember.
