The last of The Rat Pack has left us.

Post by PapaMouse »

Though not a musician, Joey Bishop's association with Sinatra, Martin, and Davis makes him a suitable subject for a music-oriented board. Especially since his passing marks the end of the group known as The Rat Pack. (A name copied in the 80s by a group who were called "The Brat Pack".)

Bishop ... felt he was more the mascot of the Pack than a full-fledged member. A 2002 biography of him by Michael Seth Starr was titled "Mouse in the Rat Pack." (Does that make him a relative of mine?)

RIP, Mr Gottlieb.
Lord, you have filled my cup so full,

I'm not going to let my history pull me down and hold me back, you see.

I was very sad to see it, Papa. He was such a funny man but very sweet also. It's the end of an era! I was also sad to see Deborah Kerr pass away. She was so beautiful and such a fine actress. Both will be missed! :(
I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way!
