    Exclamation Singer and actor Vic Damone dies at 89

    Singer and actor Vic Damone dies at 89
    By ANDREA DRESDALE

    "Singer and actor Vic Damone, one of the generation of crooners that included Frank Sinatra, died Sunday in Miami Beach, Florida, at age 89."
    "Damone died at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach surrounded by several relatives, his family confirmed in a statement."
    "Born Vito Farinloa in Brooklyn, New York, Damone had roles in a number of movies, including the hit movie musicals "Kismet" and "Hit the Deck," and also hosted a summer TV variety series in the early '60s."





    ================================================== ==

    The great singer Vic Damone has gone to his eternal rest. My sincere condolences to his family.
    Thanks from Blues63 and cpicturetaker12

    Frank Sinatra once said that Damone "had the best pipes in the business".

    I suppose that was a compliment...

    Never was a demone fan . I guess it was an italian thing.


    His music reminds me of Good Fellas.

    Wasn't vic damone the impetus for the Johnny character in Godfather. Horsehead scene.

    I saw that. Didn't put it up, I wondered how many on this board have any idea who he was. Among the better 'crooners' of the crooners. (Sinatra still wins and I'd put Andy Williams next--that's just me).

    Wow! It took me the 2nd decade into this century to finally cement my opinion. Sinatra had the best pipes of the last century (pop musicwise) as far as I'm concerned. I get Sirius radio and starting catching some of his old stuff. Damn he was good!!

    (And I'm a rock and roller by age and temperament--but damn he was good).

    Ever since I heard my first few songs from the 50's and 60s, the Romantic Era, I fell in love with that music rather than the loud music of my own generation. I much prefer softer music that one can actually understand what is being said in the song as opposed to the loud banging noise, screaming and hollering found in some of today's more popular music.

    I really liked both types of music and the same time. I remember listening to Jethro Tull and Burt Bacharach--their records stacked on top each of other on the turntable.
