He was mentored by everyone from Perry Como to Tommy Dorsey. Frank Sinatra praised his voice and became a friend for life, giving him advice on singing and women. Damone had one of the most successful careers ever had by an American pop singer and one of the most glamorous and exciting lives of any guy who lived while the Ratpack reigned. - He was almost thrown out of the window of a New York City hotel by a mobster. - He dated Ava Gardner, who got him drunk for the first time. - He married glamorous Italian actress Ana Maria Pierangeli and later, Diahann Carroll. - He appeared at the Sands Hotel during the glory days of Vegas and once took a nude chorus girl into the steam room where the Ratpack was relaxing. In "Singing Was the Easy Part," he talks frankly about his bankruptcy, his many marriages and his belief in God. It's a warm, funny, and inspiring memoir from one of America's greatest pop singers....

    This was a great book that explored the life of Vic Damone. I was really fascinated with his encounters with various mob people. If you are a fan of Vic Damone, you will probably like this book. If not, don't waste your time.

    A mostly bland book on Vic Damone's life. Some interesting bits (was EVERYONE in show biz connected with the mob in some way?). He seems like nice guy, terrific singer, and someone who wouldn't write anything negative about anyone.

    For anyone who likes to read first-hand accounts about life in show-business, this is a good read. Damone tells great tales about such legendary stars as Sinatra, George Burns and others.
