About this product
- DescriptionVic Damone is a lasting legend of American pop music. Befriended by Frank Sinatra and encouraged by legends like Perry Como and Tommy Dorsey, he had one of the greatest voices ever recorded. Now he tells his life story - and what a life it was! A mob boss tried to throw him out a window when he broke off an engagement to the boss's daughter. He married glamorous women including the beautiful Anna Pierangeli and the tempestuous Diahann Carroll. Judy Garland gave him his first screen test, he got drunk for the first time with Ava Gardner and he went golfing with George Burns and Jack Benny. Oh, and he took a nude chorus girl into the steam room of the Sands Hotel where Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin were relaxing between shows. Singing was the Easy Part is a rollicking star-studded memoir from the great Vic Damone.
- Author BiographyWith seven gold records and innumerable hits, Vic Damone was one of the greatest expositors of the American Songbook. Frank Sinatra said he had the best pipes in the business. Luciano Pavarotti called him simply The Voice. David Chanoff has written on foreign policy, education, literary history, and other subjects for such publications as the New York Times, The American Scholar, and The Washington Post. His sixteen books include collaborations with former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, former surgeon general Joycelyn Elders, and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff William Crowe.
