Hey pallies, no foolin' dudes, have we gots a great great Dino-post for all youse Dino-holics on this first day of April 2014. While searchin' that internet pot of gold, Youtube, ilovedinomartin happened 'pon a historic live interview that our most beloved Dino did from Hollywood via satellite to down under in the year of our Dino 1983. Likes we thinks that we probably have posted it here sometime in the past, but this is just so so excellent that we have to share it 'gain.
It is just so so wonderful to see our King of Cool speakin' 'bout his life, times, and teachin's in this very very rare live interview. The Dino-conversation took place sometime after Dino's trip to London to play gigs at the Apollo Theatre and have a very special 66th Birthday Bash hosted by Princess Anne. In addition to sharin' 'bout that, we also hear 'bout his swingin' times with the Rat Pack...as our delightful Dino recalls...."They were the Rats and I was the Pack."
We also learn a bit 'bout how the Matt Helm flicks came 'bout, hear 'bout the recordin' of "The Nashville Sessions" that had just be completed, and how our amazin' man had also planned 'nother recordin' of a country al-b-um that never took place.
And, there's our Dino tellin' his famous joke 'bout the difference between a dog and a fox..."three drinks," some patter 'bout what's in the glass...."ice and some J&B....just booze, news of the makin' of "Cannonball II, and how he used some cassette tapes to personally rehearse his weekly TV show. The remarkable interview concludes with our beloved Dino croonin' "Everybody loves somebody sometime."
Likes, sits back and spends a quarter of an hour bein' in the live presence of our Dino and bein' wooed and wowed by his wit and wisdom. ilovedinomartin salutes "2packs4sure" for puttin' this up on youtube for Dino-philes everwhere to be absolutely Dino-inspired. Dino-always, ever, and only, DMP
