Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

A careless talent…

Dean Martin was a multi-talented performer,  but unlike his buddy Sinatra,  who conducted his career like a military operation,  Martin never chose to focus  on honing  his considerable gifts.   I was one of many people who enjoyed him as a singer,  yet was always frustrated by his habit of interrupting a song to crack a joke,  or change the lyrics,  or whatever other disruption his fertile brain produced.

Like the late actor James Garner,  Martin was so good he made it all look very easy,  and as someone who has enjoyed singing all my life,  though never at the professional level,  I know all too well that singing is hard,  and that singing well is quite difficult
