Dean Martin was the coolest guy in the world. He was a movie star, had a hit TV show, was the king of the nightclubs, and he was one half of the most popular comedy team in the history of show business. Dean's records sold in the millions, but his greatest joy in life was his beloved golf. Dean was a very complicated man, although he appeared to be very simple. Let's take a look at Frank "Old Blue Eyes" Sinatra's best pal, Dean Martin- "Old Red Eyes.” 1) He didn't speak English until he was five.

Dean Martin grew up in a very Italian family and never spoke a word of English until he was five years old.

2) He was a Boy Scout.

Yes, Dean Martin- the bad boy, the drinker, the ladies' man, was, indeed, a Boy Scout. He was the drummer for the local Boy Scout band in Steubenville, Ohio.

3) He was once an amateur boxer.

Fighting under the name “Kid Crotchet,” Dean was reputedly a very good welterweight boxer. His record, according to one source, was 24 wins and 6 losses in 30 bouts.
Dean was so broke in his early years, he and a friend would stage fights in their hotel room and charge people to watch. Supposedly, they would often fight until one of the combatants knocked the other one out.

4) He changed his name twice.

Dean was born Dino Paul Crocetti. Upon entering show business, he changed his name to Dino Martini. Because there was a popular current singer named Nino Martini, Dean changed his name again, this time to Dean Martin.

5) He hated the Martin and Lewis movies.

Although Dean appeared in 16 very funny movies with his comedy partner, Jerry Lewis, Dean said he always "hated" the Martin and Lewis films. “They were Jerry Lewis movies,” he said, “I played an idiot in every one.” #deanmartin #music #insta #instalive #instamusically #instamusicians #instamusical #music #fungive #musicallyapp #musicaluniverse #originalsound #musicvideo #musical #musica #followme #bestoftheday #instadaily #ayn #adexeynau #love #reggaeton #work #tour #gig #lazy #musicdead #musically #madisonbeer #dead #lipsync

Jim Morrison: poet, rock god, icon.

He was the first bad boy of music, and set the bar exceptionally high for upcoming rock stars by being the notoriously outlandish singer-songwriter of The Doors.

After his sudden death aged 27, Mr Mojo Risin’ has left behind a remarkable legacy and is honoured as one of four inspirations of our Iconic suite.
We have therefore picked out 10 of the best facts in celebration of his charisma and talent:
1) Back to audience

Despite being one of the best rock frontmen of all time, and being famed for his outrageous stage behaviour, Jim was notoriously shy and even performed with his back to the audience, during the early days
2) James Phoenix

Prior to The Doors recording their first album, Jim informed the band how he wanted to begin using the stage name “James Phoenix”. Ray Manzarek, the band’s keyboardist, told him “no way!” 3) Mr Mojo Risin’

Morrison acquired a few nicknames over the years, including ‘The Lizard King’ after a poem he wrote appearing on the sleeve of The Doors’ “Waiting For The Sun” album.
But he is eternally known as Mr Mojo Risin’ after using the term as a refrain in the song ‘L.A Woman’.
Did you know: Mr Mojo Risin’ is also an anagram of Jim Morrison.
4) Harrison Ford

Before beginning his acting career, Harrison Ford worked as The Doors’ stagehand and second camera assistant.
5) Fake Death Plan

In 1966, before even signing a record contract with Elektra, Morrison told his bandmates that he would fake his death to increase their notoriety. After his death in 1971, album sales skyrocketed.
