Hollywood's own Wayne Newton has expressed his sadness over the death of Las Vegas legend Danny Gans, who Newton calls "a great friend."

"I would like to extend my sympathy to Danny's wife and family," Newton says in a statement released to "Extra," adding, "Danny was an immense talent and a great friend. He brought so much to Las Vegas, both on and off stage. He gave his time and talent to local charities and can be credited with creating an era of impressionist entertainers on the Strip. I will miss him."
