i’m headed to vegas this weekend for work. i have a hard time going to vegas without thinking about sinatra, martin, and davis. i don’t know too much about joey bishop or peter lawford, but i’m sure they were cool cats to be included in the rat pack. i can’t imagine what vegas was like when those 3 were alive. almost every single one of their shows sold out. they never said who was going to be on the bill. one of them would announce a show and people would go hoping other members of the rat pack would show up. only they didn’t call it the rat pack – the press and generally public did. they called it the summit or the clan. in all honesty, they probably didn’t care what it was called as long as they were having a good time.
