Of Phil Spector, Marshmallows and Ebb Tides
Huffington Post - about 3 years
During the early 1960s, my father, songwriter Carl Sigman, and many of his "Great American Songbook" contemporaries watched in horror as airwaves and record stores were overrun by alien creatures making noises that, to their ears, did not qualify as "music." Carl came from a tradition in which songwriters wrote songs and singers sang them. As the shift away from that model accelerated -- with the advent of the Beatles and other artists who wrote their own songs -- fewer and fewer of Carl's new tunes made the kind of (chart) noise he would have liked. Phil Spector helped change that. Spector's 1963 Christmas Album (nee A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector), which marked its semi-centennial anniversary last week, gave Carl an appreciation of the potential of rock & roll to take his old-school paeans to love (requited or, more often, not) to strange and beautiful places he had never imagined. Writing in the examiner, ace music writer/Rock 'n' Roll Pantheon czar Jim Bessma ...

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Vic Damone
    LATE_ADULTHOOD
  • 2016
    Age 87
    Damone is a personal friend of Donald Trump. In May 2016, Trump offered to be a character witness on Damone's behalf in the event of any legal action his step-daughters may take to prevent him from receiving any of his ill wife's estate, with an estimated worth of $900 million.
    More Details Hide Details In his 2009 autobiography, Singing Was the Easy Part, Damone claimed he had been held dangling out of a window of a New York hotel by a "thug". Damone claimed he had been engaged to the thug's daughter, but ended the relationship when she insulted Damone's mother. He wrote that his life was spared when, during a Mafia meeting to determine the singer's fate, New York mob boss Frank Costello ruled in Damone's favor.
  • 2015
    Age 86
    In a 2015 interview, his daughter Victoria recalled an incident in the late 1960s or early 1970s, in which a "bookie" showed up and tried to racketeer her father, saying he owed him a lot of money.
    More Details Hide Details Vic Damone phoned Frank Sinatra and asked him to intervene. Sinatra ultimately showed up, but the bookie showed Sinatra a "secret sign", which Sinatra recognized and rendered him unable to intervene. Damone consequently had to relent and pay the bookie. In 1997, Damone received his high school diploma from Lafayette High School in Brooklyn when officials with the school granted credits for life experience and asked him to give the commencement address - advising students to "Have spiritual guidance. Don't lose God. There is a God. Trust me." In 1997, Damone received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Frank Sinatra said that Damone had "the best set of pipes in the business". For his contribution to the recording industry, Damone has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1731 Vine Street in Los Angeles, California.
    He lives in Palm Beach County, Florida. In January 2015, Damone and his fifth wife, Rena, parted ways with La Casita, their landmarked residence at 200 Via Bellaria.
    More Details Hide Details The house sold for $5.75 million. Damone and his wife have since downsized to a townhouse in Sloan's Curve. Damone was raised Roman Catholic and served as an altar boy, but claims to have never found deep meaning in his original faith. In the late 1950s, he was introduced to the Bahá'í Faith by a drummer in his band. Damone has said his rendition of "On the Street Where You Live" incorporates gestures meant to summon a sustaining vitality from `Abdu'l-Bahá. He officially joined the religion in the early 1960s.
  • 2014
    Age 85
    In 2014, Damone received the Society for the Preservation of the Great American Songbook's first Legend Award in recognition of those who have made a significant contribution to the genre.

    In 2013, Damone was involved in a tug-of-war in a Palm Beach County court with Rowan's two daughters, Nina and Lisa Rowan, for control over the destiny of Rowan and her fortune, which was reportedly worth more than $50 million.
    More Details Hide Details The court ultimately sided with Damone, ruling that Rena Rowan was capable of making her own decisions.
  • 2011
    Age 82
    Damone's wife Rena Rowan, a clothing distributor who started the Jones New York chain in the mid-1970s, suffered a stroke in 2011.
    More Details Hide Details
    In December 2, 2011, at the age of 83, Damone launched an official Facebook profile dedicated to his fans.
    More Details Hide Details In addition to posting recent photos, Damone writes that besides spending time with his family, he spends his retirement enjoying golf and football. Damone suffered a stroke in 2002 and another health scare in 2008. He has since recovered from both. Damone has married five times and divorced four: Damone has six grandchildren from his daughters (Tate, Paige, Sloane, Rocco, Daniella, Grant). Damone's first wife, Pier Angeli, was previously in a well-publicized relationship with James Dean, but left him to marry Damone, a move which garnered great media attention.
    In January 2011, at the age of 82, Damone returned to the stage for the first time in a decade, performing at Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach, Florida.
    More Details Hide Details Damone stated that "I don't need the money... But, you know, my six grandkids have never seen me on stage. It will be the first time. I will introduce them. It's going to be exciting for me. Before I die, I want them to have heard me perform at least once".
  • 2010
    Age 81
    In 2010, Damone called Canadian crooner Michael Bublé talented but "cocky" and criticized him for smoking and drinking "straight alcohol" after a show, believing that it would damage his vocal cords.
    More Details Hide Details Bublé responded by saying that he knew what he was doing, but promising that he from now on would always mix his alcohol with soda or orange juice.

Damone did, however, step out of retirement on January 22, 2011, when he once again performed at the Kravis Performing Arts Center in Palm Beach, to a sold-out crowd. Damone dedicated this performance to his six grandchildren, who had never seen him perform. In Brett Ratner's movie Money Talks, Chris Tucker's character sees a commercial about Vic Damone and then pretends to be Damone's son.
