dean martin was born 92 years ago today, june 7, 1917 - and died on christmas day, 1995, at the age of 78. i am a huge fan of dean martin - both of his years with jerry lewis and then his solo career after their breakup. his music has long been a staple of my ipod playlist (favorite martin song, "ain't that a kick in the head").
check out this great slide show with photos of dean, to the soundtrack of "ain't that a kick in the head." for frank sinatra and rat pat fans, that's the song dean sings at the sahara during the original "ocean's eleven" film.
happy birthday in heaven, dean!
