Tonight’s episode celebrates the music of The Rat Pack – Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, mostly, but Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford make an appearance. These fellas were the embodiment of cool. Check the live performance from the Sands in 1960 where there is a well-stocked bar on the stage right in front of the orchestra! Fifty years ago, folks got drunk watching performers on stage getting drunk… so this makes Lady Gaga’s recent pot smoking on stage in Amsterdam look mighty tame by comparison.
