McCartney sent him the Irish wolfhound to keep him company.

Paul McCartney might just be the nicest guy in the world.

"I like country now."

Probably because most of the popular music now is awful.

He must have met Frank Sinatra around 1941. By that time, he had several hits as a band vocalist, including The Call of the Canyon by Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra (1940). He had his first hit under his own name--his version of Night and Day, a remake of Leo Reisman's hit from December, 1932.

Sinatra was a jerk. I play his LPs backwards just for s**ts & giggles. Cost a quarter each on eBay, too much IMO.

"He was very nonmaterialistic," Levine said of Hendrix. "With all the money he had he still lived very peasant-like."

As non-materialistic as someone living in Mayfair can get...

London exhibition marks 40th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix's death (in Mayfair Handel House flat)
