Who influenced Dean Martin's personality, humor, and musical style?


Robert Frost, Instructor and Flight Controller at NASA

Primarily two guys named Jack Daniels and Jim Beam.
Dean Martin said that his greatest influence came from Harry Mills of the Mills Brothers. It was one of his greatest joys to invite them to perform on his television variety show.


Al Jolson and Bing Crosby were also influences. Here’s Dean singing a Jolson medley with Bing.


Al Jolson and Bing Crosby were also influences. Here’s Dean singing a Jolson medley with Bing.


If you’d like to learn more about Dean Martin, besides watching the many great videos of him available on Youtube, I recommend the book Dino: Living High in the Dirty Business of Dreams by Nick Tosches.

Today we are deeply delighted to deeper then deep Dino-devotion from a self-tagged pad, "THE STEPHEN W. TERRELL (MUSIC) WEB LOG" and Mr. Terrell's perfect post, "THROWBACK THURSDAY: Happy Birthday, Dino!" Steve's bio tells us that he hails from New Mexico and has been a reporter 'n columnist at the Santa Fe New Mexican since 1987.  Also by searchin' his web pad that Terrell is also a musician himself.

Youse can totally totally tell that Steve is sold out to our Dino...fantastically filled with deeper then deep Dino-adulation when he sez, "Elvis Presley idolized him and I loved him too. When I was a kid, Dino and his devilish grin made me suspect that my parents' generation might not be as square as they'd have you believe."  It's crystal clear that Steve has been groovin' on our most beloved Dino since he was of tender age!

Likes below is a powerful pix of our Dino 'long with potent patter and a quintessential quartet of Dino-vid clips.  And, youse will note that Steve includes a link to his most Dino-honorin' post from his 2016 awesome adulation of Dino's day of days.  We thought that we had perhaps shared that earlier post here at ilovedinomartin, but we couldn't locate it in our annuals.  So clicks on Terrell's link and enjoy more Dino-devotion as well.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: Happy Birthday, Dino!



It's no secret that Dean Martin was the coolest guy in the world. Today would have been his 101st birthday.

Happy birthday, Dino!

As I wrote a  couple of years ago:

Elvis Presley idolized him and I loved him too. When I was a kid, Dino and his devilish grin made me suspect that my parents' generation might not be as square as they'd have you believe.

To celebrate here are some live videos.

Let's start off with this classic. a medley of "Volare" and "Evening in Roma."



I first heard this song on a Jerry Lee Lewis (not Jerry Lewis) record. Dino does a great job on it also.



This is Dean's signature song. Listen close. He's not always reverent with the lyrics.



Here's a song from the original Oceans 11 featuring Red Norvo on vibes.



I also posted about Dean Martin's birthday a couple of years ago. You'll find more videos HERE.
