Hey pallies, likes dudes how cool can it get....I just felt so Dino-directed to this swingin' blog pad, "HOLLOW MANTRAS OF CRACKED VISION: Diamond Sutras for the Doomed," where likes of all thin's pallies I found the blogger shared Mr. Keith Richards' reflections on the Stones appearance on the Hollwood Palace with our Dino as the host. This thoughts come directly from Richards' recent bio "Life."
Likes very cool indeed pallies to be able to impart Richards' thought as we remember that event in the life and times of our most beloved Dino. And how great to read of Keith's personal devotion to our great man...." I love old Dino. He was a pretty funny bloke, even though he wasn't ready for the changing of the guard."
Thanks to the blogger dude of ""HOLLOW MANTRAS OF CRACKED VISION: Diamond Sutras for the Doomed," for sharin' these words with his readers. To view this in it's original format, likes just clicks on the tag of these Dino-thoughts. Keeps lovin' our Dino! Dino-awed, DMP
Rolling Stones first TV appearance in America (Dino Martin)
From Keith Richards (rebel guitar player for The Rolling Stones) recent bio, "Life"... we have a brief note on The Stones first American appearance on T.V. on the Dean Martin TV show.
Dean "rat pack" Martin presented, and played the drunken, disrespectful emcee...to what was considered a long haired, group of Brit crazies who later moved music in The Sixties towards some great heights.
From page 151:
..."But earlier we had the experience of Dean Martin inroducing us at the taping of the Hollywood Palace TV show. In America then, if you had long hair, you were a faggot as well as a freak. They would shout across the street, "Hey, fairies!" Dean Martin introduced us as something like "these long-haired wonders from england, the Rolling Stones....They're backstage picking the fleas off each other." A lot of sarcasm and eyeball rolling.
Then he said, "Don't leave me alone with this," gesturing with horror in our direction. This was Dino, the rebel Rat Packer who cocked his finger at the entertainment world by pretending to be drunk all the time. We were, in fact, quite stunned. English comperes and showbiz types may have been hostile, but they didn't treat you like some dumb circus act. Before we'd gone on, he'd had the bouffanted King Sisters and performing elephants, standing on their hind legs. I love old Dino. He was a pretty funny bloke, even though he wasn't ready for the changing of the guard.
