Steve, thanks for your comment and the story that went with it. What a shame, I didn't know that about the old man let alone about his son. That had to be an amazing little sit-down for you to be a part of. By the way, as you can see by the date of my last post this blog has been dormant for quite some time (since I retired from the bar business) but I guess these comments will still dribble in here and there. Which I sure appreciate. That said, thanks again for your comment and cheers to you and the Mrs.

Ah yes ..."life is but a dream" so glad I got to read yours! Like to hear more . I accidentally had one .around 06 my wife and I sat at a empty table for 6 on a Caribbean cruise and behind us another couple a few years older also at an empty 6 top. Some how got to exchanging quips with them so invited them to join our lonely table. Turns out its the son of thee Tommy Dorsey! Also named Tommy.... Ex IBM salesman not musical,but shared the booze delima that killed his father. Story after story. How Frank Sinatra got out of his contract with Tommy. Mafia stuff.Getting a free swimming pool fill from NYC fire department.How the wife Tommy would be divorced from in 3 days ,but Tommy choked on his own vomit and died, took everything from the estate and Tommy Jr got nothing... not even his trombone. So goes the rich and famous. I'll chose not being famous... Been searching for Johnny stuff. Loved your tale and hope for more. That is exactly how I've pieced together the real Johnny, like you described the time you had with him. So sorry for his shy and drinking ways.his brother doesn't seem to be like that. Go figure same parents..

Hi Scrib, I find the song nauseating, because of the pain involved in its story. Broken promises make for great love songs and broken hearts, There was a song whose lyrics said, " Be sure its true when you say I love you. It's a sin to tell a lie. Millions of hearts have been broken just because those words were spoken." So lesson is, don't say it unless you mean it!
