Tell me, Dean, may I call you Dean ? ...
Sure yuh can, kid, waddaya wanna know ?
... when you ran with the Pack why did you allow Sinatra to dominate the group when everyone could tell you had by far the strongest personality ?
Oh, don't yuh lissen to gossip, kid. Frank was the King in them days. I just hung around for the girls. Gee, those gals ... legs goin' on for ever. And, boy, could they drink !
But you fell out with him. I read you refused to perform in a Chicago club where he had Mob connections. Didn't Sinatra cut you dead for a long time afterwards ?
Now yuh shouldn't lissen to those stories, they ain't true. But supposin' they were ... so what if Frank didn't ring me for six years, so what if the old bastard cut me dead in public. Frank was the King, an we all wanned it that way.
One last question, Dean. Do you believe Sinatra envied your considerable stage presence and that's why he favoured Sammy Davis ... that he felt more comfortable with Sammy paying him court than with you who wouldn't ?
Now that's an interesting thought. Wud yuh like a drink, kid ? I think this could be a long evenin'.
Psst.....Seamus, d'ye tink this story's true ?
Jaysus, Michael, how'd I know.
But, Seamus, it could be true, couldn't it ?
Yes, an' I might be the King o' the Fairies !
