Rogan's Recollections

(And Occasional Historical Observations)

Singer Vic Damone (1928-2018)

Comedian Bob Newhart, James Rogan, and singer Vic Damone, 1995

When a reporter once asked Frank Sinatra who was the best male vocalist of that day, the Chairman of the Board didn't hesitate when he answered: he said the singer with "the best pipes in the business" was Vic Damone.


Long ago, when I attended a charity event with Vic and another legend, comedian Bob Newhart, Vic proved Sinatra was on to something. He was an amazing and beloved entertainer whose career covered seven decades


When Vic died this weekend at the age of 89, we lost one of the few remaining stars from the golden age of the Great American Songbook.
