The Music: Happy Birthday Dean Martin!

"The coolest man who ever lived."

To Stevie Van Zandt said he was "simply perfect."  While Elvis Prestley worshipped him.  Who is this man? Dean Martin.

Born Dino Crocetti, today Dean Martin would have celebrated his 94th birthday.  He would have swooned with his sinsual voice and his mysteriosity.  Us youngsters may be beguiled by his charming good looks but don't let this fool you.  Dean Martin's past is as gritty as today's hip hop artists.  He was a bootlegger, a speakseasy croupier, blackjack dealer, and boxer!

A true musician and a wonderful artist to be remembered. 

 Happy Birthday! Dean Martin!

This is what Bruno Mars will look like when he gets older.
