(YouTube)   Sammy Davis Jr. Frank Sinatra. Dean Martin.... and Johnny Carson. Did I mention the Count Basie Band? "How does it feel to sit in the back of the bus?" So... what did our generation contribute to music again?   (youtube.com) divider line 10

To be fair, subby, none of those frontmen contributed much to music, either. They just took standards and made them popular among aging folks and mafioso for a while.

But it is fun to watch those guys work the crowd.

They contributed less racism, less ties to the mafia and less old white people talking about how Frank Sinatra was somehow more then somewhat taleneted.

Also, less people watching movies with Frank too.

YMMV of course.

Dean Martin is such a drunk...but god do I love him. Almost every video on youtube, he is almost completely sloshed, or comfortable tipsy. It truly was a different era.

We can appreciate the contribution of all artists without need to insinuate that one "generation" was better than another.

Also, he was playacting a myth about himself for laughs. He drank, but wasn't drunk-acting by accident.

If you want to see what a drunk looks like, go watch the chimney sweep dance in Mary Poppins. Dick Van Dyke was stumbling stupid stoned during that performance. Really.

The ability to easily share this sort of experience cheaply and efficiently across a variety of platforms?
